Quite frequently, I am noticing that my daughter is having great story writing skills. Yes, she has fallen in love with words. And sometimes, I think children often tends to get attracted with someone's work he/she is close with - mother, father or so on and learn a lot from them. And this is what she said when I told her ,"Wow, dearie you write so well. You make me proud".  Her answers were simple and straight, "Amma you know what, I learnt it from you. I see you writing often using your laptop and so I thought I could also do the same.".

Ah!there you are. Now I know from where you got those HSPs as well. And very soon, I consciously started to pull myself up to keep my mouth shut whenever I see avalanche of clutters in my home - toys, bits of papers, cloths (that's has been taken for their role-plays), crayons and what not. Mommies should learn to keep their mouth shut at least when they know that their kids are watching. Keeping aside this topic for my future post, we now come to our today's topic about making our own calender.

How to Make your own Calendar

I have discussed in my previous post about  Developing Creativity in the Early Years and the role of the school in practising the same. Here are some innovative and creative calender designs by my children done in their own school.

Poetry Calender - Vidula
A printout of my daughter's poetry was taken and was pasted on a blotted paper. Then below the paper, a mini calender was attached. Above the blotted paper, you can see a string which can be used to hang this creative calender on walls or on cupboards. My daughter loved it when she had this calender hung in her room.

"Winter time you are snowy
Winter time you are fun" - so is it !

And not to forget my little one. He is still learning his phonics and hence he was told to pose for his own calender. There you go, little one with an owl on your small hands.

Photo Calender - Ajay
The above image is a photo calendar which was done by pasting my son's photo on a painted paper along with a mini calender. Now, do I need all those calender sold outside with nature pictures and flower pictures. No, not at all!. The idea is simple but very effective and now, you can too make your own Calendar from home.

I always love to treasure my children artworks and creative things in a separate file. And along with that, this "KIDS SPACE" will also be sure holding a lot of wonderful memories.

    1. Is that so? Not all adults fall in this category at least not the ones who appreciate good works. I guess it happens only when adults can't interpret a child's work or take some moment to ask the child what he has actually drawn in his paper.

  6. Yes, that calendar is quite creative. More than that, it has a personal element to it....One can find beauty in nature calendars sold outside, but this one will bring back memories which are far more intimate and closer to your heart....
