If you follow me on Twitter, you might have already seen this, but I've written an article explaining how you can create an advent calendar on your computer using PowerPoint. It's a simple project that uses a built-in template, which you can customise with your own pictures. The template features some nice PowerPoint animations and comes with some great default clip art, so even if you don't want to make your own calendar, you can use the default template to count down the days to Christmas.
PowerPoint is often overlooked in the Microsoft Office suite by home users, because people think it's only for business presentations. Together with the photo album project in Microsoft Office for the Older and Wiser, this project shows that PowerPoint can be used for fun projects too. What else have you used PowerPoint for?
