This year my son was enamored of Advent calendars – the idea of getting a little something every day from Hanukkah to Christmas. He also wanted to give them as gifts to his friends. He came up with the idea of a calendar that contained Magic: the Gathering cards. This was a great rainy-day-off school project for the two of us. We put it together using paper and tape (and the cards, of course) in just about an hour or so.
