So, this past school year, my daughter was helping me change the calendar in my classroom. We weren’t far into the process when she announced that my calendar was looking pretty shabby and that I really ought to consider getting a new one. Wow, really...
Now even though I still maintain my 20+ year old calendar kit looked pretty good, I decided to take her advice and create a new kit. And thus, “Not Your Mom’s” Calendar Kit was born.
This kit contains 7 complete polka dot sets in the following colors: Tangerine, Lime, Lemon, Red, Sky Blue, Hot Pink and Black. Having seven different colors allows you to mix and match! Want a lime and tangerine calendar? You can do that!
Each set contains: Calendar number cards 1 - 31, 12 month cards and 7 day of week cards. Note: This set does not contain the background sheet to which the cards are attached. I just recycled my old one, but you can easily make one using poster board. I would recommend running the number cards and month cards on white card stock and laminating, so you can make it last 20+ years!
Also included are all 12 months written in bubble letters. I personally use these letters (not the polka dot month cards) to label the month. I purchased several 8.5 x 11 pattern paper packs. (Available at Walmart in scrapbooking section.) Choose a coordinating texture/color to compliment the number cards and run the pattern pack paper through your printer. When you are finished you’ll have colorful letters to cut out and use for your calendar. And...even better...you won’t use any colored ink!
