Oh, the New Year is here! I LOVE the fresh-start feeling, regardless of how cliche it may be, and one of the many things I’m aiming for is upping my teach-my-small-child important stuff game. I was gifted a fabulous resource for teaching kids days and months (and a lot of other awesome things!) and I am so happy to share it with you all.
The Fun, Happy Calendar is a perpetual calendar which brings me to my first “lesson.” Because it is perpetual, you can pencil in the days of the week with your lucky pupil which will help practice letter formation, the correct order of the days and the idea that each line has seven days, hence the seven day week. OR you can not pencil in the days of the week and reuse the calendar over and over, as in perpetually 🙂 It is a win for moms either way.
This calendar is also a coloring book. A coloring book + calendar is right! The illustrations for each month are ready to be filled in by parent and child alike (we love coloring in colored pencils in my home, occupied by children who are ages 36, 4, and 2). The illustrations are of the birth flower, stone, tree (the author’s brilliant invention), and other relevant characters.
