4. DIY 2016 desk calendarYou can still download the free DoitYourself (DIY) printable desk calendar for 2016!=> 2016_DIY_Printable_Desk_Calendar_v2.doc It also has fun activities for children! For each month of the calendar, your child (or children) can connect the dots, trace a maze, or match the twins, and then color the playful images — creating a truly personalized calendar for the new year. The activity pages come from my daughter Abby's website Children's Best Activities, which includes all sorts of fun creative and thinking skill activities, like coloring pages, matching pairs, dottodots, mazes, and much more! After trimming, the calendar pages are sized to fit into an empty CD case. This DIY Desk Calendar has been done in collaboration with Homeschool Buyers Coop. Simply download it here: => 2016_DIY_Printable_Desk_Calendar_v2.doc
