I made this today for my 4 year. I am also planning on making him some matching alphabet & number flash cards so we can start playing school! I really think it came out cute! I used a 12" cake circle for the bottom to make it more sturdy. You could also use something like this for a countdown to a special Disney event or vacation. Example on the 12th day at 12:00 you could watch your favorite Disney movie, On day 7 at 7:00 you could pack bathing suits, sunscreen etc.
