I got an easel that has felt on one side and a magnetic surface on the other side from a fellow daycare provider friend and I wanted to spruce it up and make it more functional for me.

Currently I have a small Melissa & Doug magnetic calendar board that I use for morning meeting but I had to hold it while I was using it, once I got the easel I would hang it from the easel but it took up a lot of surface space and wasn't really functional.

So I got crafty and first applied dry-erase vinyl so now on that side I can write AND attach magnets. Then I used my Cricut to cut-out my own calendar out of vinyl and made sure that it would still fit the same magnets that came with my M&D board and I love how it's coming out!

It's not finished yet but I'm excited! I still have to finish making the days of the week and finish off the thermometer but it's coming along nicely.

I'm thinking that I also want to make some sort of bags or pouches or some type of organizer to keep the extra magnets in and figure out a way to either hang it or velcro it to the underside of the easel so I can have them accessible but not in the way. I might even get a little magnetic holder for the markers. Thoughts on a way to keep my little do-dads organized?

It looks fantastic!!! I have a daily schedule and used a small suction cup bath caddy for my extras. Just removed the suction cups and added hooks.

That's a great idea! I honestly never would have thought of that and it would work perfect. I can probably even find something like that at the Dollar Tree THANKS!

I'm thinking about getting back to my woodworking business that I started 2 years ago. I should hire you as my product designer.

That's where I found mine! Total was $2 since the hooks were there, too!
