I started doing this 4 years ago and parents love it! The calendar is black and white and has pictures for each month that students can color.
After the students have colored each page, I place their picture, year, and some sort of decoration on a large 12 X 18 piece of construction paper and laminate it. Then I staple the calendar to the paper.
I always wrap it up with an ornament the kiddos made and there ya go! The parents really love this gift because it is "hand-made" and useful! I have made this one SUPER cute and each page has an adorable border! Just click here to grab it in my store!
Don't forget. You only have until Monday to sign up for Holly Bloggy Christmas!
