All the little figures are backed with felt and then have a loop attached with a button on the back. There are also button-type fasteners on which the figures hang, both in the border (for before the date) and in the center (for after). I also marked, with numbers, each figure and then underneath the fasteners in both the border and center, so the kiddos would know where everything belongs. It didn't come with a solution for numbering, so it was kind of a "winging-it" thing.
Here are pictures of it before I gave it to them, and then a couple of shots of them with it.
This one is at our quilt group when we were celebrating it.
All the figures are hanging in the border.

The kiddos with it on Day 2.....
.....and again on Day 13!
Oh, I love these two!
