As soon as I saw this idea in the recent copy of CK Media Presents Holiday Home cards, gifts and projects I thought it was killer. It's a $7 magnetic board from where else...Target. You just decorate it with all your card/scrapbooking supplies and attach magnets to anything you want to use for the dates. This will be good to use year after year. Here it is in this picture ready to start out new month tomorrow.
Here is a picture of what it will look like at the end of the month with all the pieces on it. This was so fun for both me and my kids. Madi just loves that it's her fingers for the 3rd(I punched out part of a photo from her 3rd birthday). For the 14th and 19th it's both my kids in their soccer uniforms from 3 years ago, those were the numbers on their jerseys. Ben came up with the idea of using coins for the dates of the 1st, 5th, 10th and 25th. Also on a few of them both kids wrote out a number. this was really a fun project for us. Madi has already claimed the odd numbers for the month and Ben is happy to do the even...phew that was easy!
