Time to make a candy calendar! Remember this one from last year? I made an updated version for 2012. I've pretty much done all of the hard work for you. It's basically a four step process.
Step One: Click here to print your calendar onto a piece of heavy card stock.
Step Two: Use your glue gun to carefully glue a piece of candy (small wrapped candy works best) to each square of the calendar.
|This is a great step for the kids to help with. I put the glue on the back of the candy and let her press it onto the paper.|
Step Four: Thread some ribbon through the holes and tie it in a bow at the top. Hang your calendar in a place of distinction, and enjoy!
We went with a red and white candy theme. You can buy one bag of your favorite candy and use the same kind for each day. Or buy a variety of candy to mix things up a bit.
"So simple...so easy...so perfectly perfect!" (Name that children's book!)
I had a lot of candy left-over. It would be really fun to make a bunch of these and gift them to your friends. Or hide your candy in the back of the pantry and save it for a really fun project that I will be posting soon. Which is of course, what I did. Can't wait to show you what I have up my sleeve!
