    Please give me your imput. This is how I was thinking of doing it.

    The size of these (banners) are aprox 20x28. They are for my DIL's pre-school class room.

    My idea is to make something from fabric, almost like a quilt or stiffened with interfacing, we will call it the pannel. It will be aprox 30"x38". 5" larger all around. There will be 3 large buttons across the top about 3" down from the top. The ribbon loops will be used to hang the smaller banner from the buttons.

    I might put a dowel rod through the top for stiffness. Thought about making a pocket on the back of the pannel to hold the extra banners, but now I'm thinking if I add 3 buttons on the back of the pannel they can be stored there. As to not wrinkle.

    Perhaps a row of pockets across the bottom, the childrens names can then be placed on a piece of paper on a popcicle stick and inserted in the pockets, their names can be cut out like an apple, house, turkey, etc.

    I was thinking to add 3 loops to the pannel to be hung by tacks or hooks on the wall.

    I want it to be interactive, but can't think of anything other than the Birthday Cupcake, I have made 3 candles, the child with the birthday that day,week,or month, can place the candle on the cupcake top. I have sewn a pocket at the bottom of the cupcake to hold the extra candles. Just incase more than 1 birthday.

    The cupcake and school house are like a patchwork and the others are simply "wonder under-ed". No sew kind.

    The banners are reversable. Something different on each side

    :arrow: Do you have any suggestions? :idea:

    What about ....
    Christmas?
    St. Patrick's Day?
    ... and any other USA Stat Holidays?

    Velcro might be worth considerations.

    ... and could have inserts for the name(s) of the new/moving child

    Weather related?? ....
    *rain coats, rubber boots, and rain drops
    *snowmen

    With this being pre-school, most everything is a learning opportunity, so how about one for each of the seasons?

    Your might want to do a separate quilt-calendar, that changes each month, along with days of the week to switch daily, plus numbers to for each day.
