“Hard presses make an oval shape and gentle presses tend to make a more circular shape.”
If you decide to make this calendar as a keepsake for your child to look at when he or she is older, it might be fun to write things on the calendar. Some ideas are: things you and your child did together, family outings, visitors, spent the night at Grandma’s house, vacations, road trips, classes, Gymboree, milestones (new tooth, said a new word, 1st haircut, sat up by self…….) , birthdays, holidays, play dates, played at the park, 1st day of school, doctor visits, basically anything you think would be fun to put on the calendar. In the inside of the front & back cover, you could make a collage of pictures taken throughout the year 🙂 Don’t forget to put a current photo of your child on the cover along with the year!
Hint: Don’t waste paint! You can always place the leftover paint in an air-tight container.
