Event Calendar

I made this summer event calendar about 3 years ago after seeing a similar idea in the Family Fun magazine. Each day of the month corresponds to the numbers on the ice cream cone. The girls take turns pulling out the slips of paper to see what activity or field trip is planned for the day. Sometimes it is something elaborate sometimes it's not. Whatever it is, though, the girls always enjoy the suspense of finding out what they get to do. This month so far they have gone bowling, stamped cards to send to cousins, colored patriotic pictures, decorated for Independence Day, drawn pictures to send to the Friend Magazine, and today they get to have a makeover with real makeup (just what every girl dreams of!).
