For all the last minuters out there looking for an easy Christmas advent idea (or maybe you didn't think you would do one because it would be too much work) I am coming to your rescue. My friend asked me yesterday if I had any advent ideas (she needed one last minute and I wracked my brain until I came up with one). I had to find something that would be super quick, affordable and simple to make (and you don't even have to be crafty to make it.) The idea comes courtesy of Martha Stewart.

-hide them in different parts of your house (one each morning) to have your children find them
-fill a basket with these and have them dig through to find the correct date
-if you live where the weather is nice, hang them outside
