Apply Number Sticker

Number each box from 1 to 25 with white stickers. Apply odd numbers on the red paper and even numbers on the green paper, and use a ruler to make sure each number is the same distance from the bottom of each box.

Add Goodies and Stack

Fill each box with paper gift filler and small toys and candy (Image 1) then use clear tape to seal the top of each box shut. Stack boxes in the shape of two Christmas trees (Image 2) and open one daily until Christmas Day. (Helpful Hint: Use double-sided tape between each box to keep them from accidentally falling.)
