How do You Make a Simple Calendar for Kids?
Do you have a preschool or kindergarten child who is always asking “What’s the date today?” or “What month is it?” or “What day is today?”? I sure do!
Ever since we started school, that question gets asked multiple times a week, sometimes every single day!
So, I decided it was time my son have his own little calendar to keep up with the date and month himself. Hence, I created this simple calendar that is perfect for the kiddos to personalize with markers, crayons, or coloring pencils.
To make this simple calendar, all you have to do print and use. It’s really as easy as that!
Is there a Free Printable Calendar?
Yes there is! This free printable calendar is black and white and comes in two versions: a dated version and an undated version that lets you write-in the dates.
Additionally, each month of the calendar comes with a simple graphic related to the theme of the month. Kids can color in the graphic and draw their favorite things to decorate their calendar. I already know my son will be drawing cars all over his calendar as that is his favorite thing!
Calendar Preschool Printable
I recommend printing the undated one for older preschoolers and up who are learning to write their numbers. That way, they get a chance practice numbering their calendar, starting on the correct day of the week. This is also a great opportunity to let kids practice writing within the lines (the calendar boxes).
Otherwise, print the dated version and you are all set to go!
Both versions let kids color in the month of the year at the top. This helps them to practice their letters as well as learn to write and spell the month of the year.
I really like the Ultra Clean Crayola Fine Line Markers as they come in a variety of colors and are 100% washable. I also find that their size (fine line) is perfect for writing in numbers and coloring in the graphics and letters when you print the calendars on letter size (8.5″ x 11″) paper.
