Santa's Beard Countdown to Christmas Calendar. Perfect for kids to work on fine motor & cutting skills. Maybe a snowman to countdown to winter/Christmas break. Or a flower or spring item with wavy lines for Spring break countdown.
Great idea from another: "Mother & Child Mini Interview. Would be cute to do every year on your child's birthday. Put it in a binder with a letter to your dear one each year. Give them the binder when they are all grown up. This is soo sweet!
