This is a very clever idea and I am sure the kids would love it because it puts the calendar front and center in the action of your daily routine! Using old little boxes to hold the daily treat or surprise, is a great way to reuse found objects and materials you have in hand, and you can get as simple or fancy as you desire. You could add buttons, ribbon, little plastic or resin animals, parts of old Chirstmas cards, or whatever is available to really make the design unique to you! Great idea, thanks for sharing!
