Print out the candy box calendar template on regular paper or cardstock and cut out the pieces. Using the left part of the heart, fold along the dotted line. Glue or tape the left half of the heart to the right half.
Print the chocolates template on regular paper or cardstock and cut out the pieces.
Print and cut out the activities for the chocolate box. (Parents should cut out the activities so the kids will be surprised as they open up each date.)
(See diagram in candy box calendar PDF.) Fold the activity circles in half at the indicated point. On the front of each activity, paste or tape the appropriate chocolate (A to B). Be sure to match the number on the chocolate with the number on the activity. Next, paste or tape the entire card (C) to the corresponding number on the chocolate box (D).
Attach a stick-dot sticker (found at local craft stores) to each circle to keep it closed until that day when your child will peel off the sticker and read the activity underneath. Have fun!
