Finally!! After lots of emails from all of you and snippets of being able to work here and there, I finally have the 2017 Color Your Own Calendar ready!
It’s only 8 days late! Eek!
Thank you all for your patience. I hope your young ones enjoy!
This Color Your Own Calendar 2017 is the perfect complement to Mama’s Daily Calendar Notebooks!
2017-2018 Calendar Notebooks will be published Early May 2017
Color Your Own Calendar 2017
Just like in previous years, I’ve included three different types of calendars in this packet.
The pictures and headings are the same, however, there are 3 types of writing opportunities.
You’ll find calendars with the dates filled in, a set with dotted lines for tracing, and a set that is blank for your child to fill in the missing dates.
Suggestions for Using Color Your Own Calendar Printables
There are several ways you can use these calendar printables. Here are just a few suggestions:
→ Consider this a massive coloring project and color all at once!
→ Color one page per month. For example, make the first day of the month the Calendar day. Talk about national and personal holidays and have your children mark those on their calendar.
→ Complete the pages at the beginning of the year, over a course of a few days.
→ Do you complete a unit study on seasons? If so, color only those months appropriate to the seasons you’re studying.
A few helpful notes:
→ Print the calendar pages on card stock. If you’d like your calendar to last the whole year, card stock is much more durable and is sure to last the whole year.
→ Use your comb binding system (affiliate link) to bind the pages along the top. Then your calendar will be flippable. And flippable just makes things more fun!
→ If you have a daily notebook or calendar notebook, insert the month’s calendar page at the front so you can go over the day’s date. Use a plastic page protector for even more durability.
::: If you would like to purchase this packet for classroom use (which includes any use outside of your own home with your own children), you may do so at the bottom of this page.
