Now it’s time to let your little ones creativity really shine, firstly find lots of lovely decorations for each month. Now depending on how much time you are looking to kill, they can either make the whole calendar up front or decorate each month as it comes to it. Doing it each month can help to teach your little ones about different months of the year and the events that happen in them. Some great ideas for things you can use when decorating are:
– Family photos taken during different seasons
– Cut outs from event cards such as Christmas, Easter etc.
– Hand drawings of themes of the month
– Magazine cut outs
– Wrapping paper
Once you have lots of images representing the month simply cut them out and stick them on creating a lovely scene or collage for each month. Once complete you will not only have a working calendar but a treasured memento of your children’s creativity that you can keep forever.
