I ordered this calendar from Oriental Trading & it is awesome!!! The pieces are made out of sturdy cardboard. I hung it on Noah's playroom door with command hooks.
To make this board, I bought foam cardboard at Walmart ($2.98). Then, I printed and laminated each page & attached each to the board with staples. I can move the board down on the floor when we get ready to have our Morning Meeting where Noah can see & manipulate the pieces.
I wanted to have the letter we were working on written big for Noah to see. I just laminated my page & used a dry-erase marker to write the upper & lower case letters.
To make the day & month page, just print out the background page, days of the week, and months of the year; laminate; and cut apart. Then, I added velcro dots to the back so they can be changed out each day.
Yes, I am going to share these little creations with you. To download the day, week, and letter pages, click HERE
I stapled a clear sheet protector to the board for our monthly Bible verse or verse that goes along with our featured letter. Check out Totally Tots for verse suggestions. I added yellow dots under each word so Noah can track & read it each day.
I downloaded the weather chart from Confessions of a Homeschooler HERE.
Each day, Noah will reach into the Color Bag & pull out a color for our "Color of the Day." I added a velcro dot to the front of the bag for the chosen color. I downloaded the Color of the Day from 1+1+1=1 HERE.
Enjoy making a calendar board for your little ones! I had so much fun making mine!
