- Select 24 styles of paper and cut them into squares slightly larger than the cardboard pieces. Wrap the squares like gifts.
- Using Tacky Glue, adhere small polka dotted gift cards to the backsides to give them a finished look.
- Use Tacky Glue to attach the number chips and set aside to dry. You could also use sticker numbers if you can't find these.
- Hammer in 24 small nails in the top center of each compartment.
- After the bingo numbers are dry, hang each card by a small clip.
- Once each compartment is filled with treasure, pieces of paper that say "Hooray! Today we are going to make a gingerbread house!", or what have you, hang your cards in numerical order.
- Each day you and your child remove the appropriate hanging card and see what present or adventure awaits.
