For the holidays last year my son gave us a calendar that he made at school. Our family has chosen to keep an electronic calendar to organize our lives, but the laminated calendar with fun illustrations and big numbers was perfect for counting down important events and remembering what day is was. After being assured that another hand made one was not coming from school this year we decided to make our own. I found a blank 2014 monthly calendar on line. Then started collecting and requesting art for the different months. It was a great way to preserve fun holiday art that has come home from preschool. The kids liked to change up there monsters and snow flakes for beach landscapes upon request. With the pictures on one side and the monthly calendar on the other they went through my laminator. Then off to Staples to get it ring bound.
