Pennant Bunting Summer Event Calendar
Along with the 50 summer fun ideas list that I created from the Crafting Chicks, I wanted to hang it up somehow. I liked Chocolate on my Craniums idea of an appliqued wall hanging. However, I wanted something a little smaller. So I kept it simple and stuck to a six day pennant flag bunting event calendar. Each day they flip open the flag and there is a little pocket. Inside each pocket there is a number on a piece of paper. (So far, they haven't cheated and looked ahead at the other pockets so I put them in a week at a time). They refer to the 50 summer fun idea chart clipped to the bunting and that is what we do special that day!
So far it's worked out really well. The visual calendar gets them really excited about what we are going to do that day. Then at the end of the day, they can check it off the list!
Here are some photos I submitted to Delia Creates "Color My Summer Contest". I didn't have the list of 50 summer fun ideas picked up from Costco yet so I substituted it with some scrapbook paper. My idea was chosen and featured here! Thanks to Delia Creates and Kojo Designs for the features!
In the next week I hope to put up a tutorial of how to make your own Pennant Bunting Summer Event Calendar and perhaps a giveaway! So stay tuned!
