More games with old calendars

Last year I posted about games with old calendars and this week we did some more activities with some old calendars we'd saved. First we made another matching game with an animal calendar.

Then we used the pages from a calendar with pictures of scenery to make sticker pictures.

This was my picture.

Sunnyboy did all these.

Sunnyboy really enjoyed this activity and telling stories about the pictures he created, with a running commentary on what was happening as he put each sticker on the page. A bonus of using a calendar with glossy pages was that he could peel off the stickers again and move them around as he told the story.

  3. That is such a cool idea! I like how the glossy pages can be reused. Very clever, thanks for sharing! And thanks so much for joining in the "Unplugged Project" this month. I hope it was fun! PS. We once cut old calendar pages into pieces and made jigsaw puzzles.
