  1. I absolutely LOVE this idea! I’m going to post about this on my blog with a link back here 🙂 Thanks for the great idea!!! If you aren’t ok with me posting, please let me know.

  2. This is a GREAT idea! I’m going to take care of the paper jam in my printer just so I can print it off. 😉

  3. Ami, I absolutely love this! I am going to use it as a handwriting project for my clients (ages 5-13). I will be away for 3 weeks in the Spring and this will be a wonderful way to have them practice their handwriting and to plan out some fun activities with their parents! I will pin and share with my readers as well. Thanks so much! (Great ideas for the list, as well!!! Thanks!)

  4. Great list! I am going to steal “make a birdbath”. I’ve always wanted birds chirping in my backyard 🙂
