This is a wonderful idea. Not because it's cute, which it is, or easy, which it is or inexpensive which it also is. I have 4 grand kids and trying to get even a tiny treat in a little calenders opening is hard when you have to put in four every day. These cups will hold them just fine. THanks force sharing this great idea
