Reviews - What do customers think about Make Your Own Calendar 2009?
Great for my four-year-old daughter Feb 13, 2009
This is the second year that my daughter has had a Make Your Own Calendar. She loves it. At the beginning of each month she loves to place the stickers on that month, color in the cute borders, and make her own artwork for that month. It's something special for her to do and look forward to each month and then she gets to have it hanging on the wall all month long. It's also a great tool (as any calendar would be) to help her learn the days of the week, number sequencing, and months of the year.
Great Kids Calender Feb 3, 2009
The kids have a blast each month creating pictures and adding information to the calender!
Pretty Close to perfect! Dec 9, 2008
My children and nieces all enjoy making their calendar - they learn how to work together (I only give one per family) and decide who gets which month, as well as discuss which holidays to mark. I would recommend this for ages 4 to 12 years.
We use it to reinforce Spanish, and German too - as they work we sing the months and days and holidays in as many languages as we can think of!
Great gift, highly recommend for those who like arts and crafts. Sra. Gose Mother of Five, Spanish Teacher, Author Spanish Fun Activity Calendar
This book will make 2009 special for your kids Sep 29, 2008
For teachers, parents and day-care staff, there is a way to keep those children occupied! Make Your Own Calendar 2009 is an engaging and interesting craft book that will hold their interest. Filled with colorable pictures and empty areas that can be used to draw, this calendar will encourage their creativity. As an added bonus, about 200 stickers are packaged with the book.
The calendar can also be used for educational purposes. Teaching children the date/calendar system can be a daunting task. But with this handy tool, it will be much easier to explain and show them since they will have a keen interest in something they have worked on. Each page comes with month-appropriate pictures surrounding it, which in itself can be used as an educational tool to explain the major holidays and significance of each month. Children will also be exposed to the diversity present in different cultures as important festivals and holidays of many different cultures are noted.
Not only is Make Your Own Calendar 2009 something that can be used to keep your children busy, but it can also be used to expand their knowledge. And the most important thing is that it can be a very fun activity! I am definitely looking forward to 2009 so that I can use my self-made calendar!
Armchair Interviews says: This would be a perfect gift.
an annual favorite with our kids Aug 6, 2008
Our kids (ages 5 and 8) are in love with this item. This is our 3rd or 4th year of buying the calendars. I pre-order them, and the kids anticipate the calendars' August arrival date the way they would anticipate Christmas or their birthdays. They spend a lot of time discussing what they will draw for each month, and they enjoy the coloring parts and putting on the special occasion stickers. It is a long-term project. They will spend weeks or even months on their calendars. This is a perfect gift for kids with a long attention span who like art projects. If you give this gift in December, though, it probably won't be finished by January 1, so give it earlier in the fall.
