What a fun way to start out the month! I love how easy it is to use. All the dates are already filled in; huge time saver.
I had been wanting to change up the parent Christmas gift we make and finally found just what I was looking for! It was wonderful because we could work on one or two months a day and it wasn’t super messy and the parents loved them! Win-win!
