One gift (and curse) I have is to find lots of cool links on a multitude of subjects. Someday I must really learn how to use this power for good, instead of for evil. 😉
Anyway, since the subject of calendars came up I thought I would post some of my favorite links here, just in case anyone is interested. (And if you have any ideas for how I could use this power for good, please let me know!)
Family Time Calendar: http://parenting.ivillage.com/familytime/calendar/frame
Daily ideas for together time for families.
Monthly Preschool Activity Calendar: http://www.preschoolexpress.com/calendar09/august-activity-calendar.html
It says for preschool, but I’m sure we creative mom’s can adapt the ideas for almost any age. Check out the rest of this awesome website.
Enchanted Learnings Monthly Calendar: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/activitycalendars/
Daily activities with links to activity pages on their website. For older elementary kids.

Everything Preschool: http://www.everythingpreschool.com/holidays/
This isn’t really a calender per se, but a list of what special month/week/day for that month. Ex: August is National Watermelon month; the first week is World Breastfeeding week; and the first day is Respect for Parent’s Day.
Handprint Calendars: http://www.littlegiraffes.com/handprintcalendar.html
I made these last year as Christmas presents. Keep an eye on this page, as they may be updating for 2010.
Teacher Created Monthly Calendars: http://www.teachercreated.com/free/calendars.php
I linked this in an earlier email, but in case you missed it, it’s a great site.
The Learning Calendar: http://www.learningcalendar.com/
You can buy this calendar in print, but their website is a good resource and has a interesting “this day in history” feature.
Hope this helps someone! 🙂
