This next calendar craft activity is incredibly simple and yet the finished product looks great. What's more, with a little parental preparation, it's suitable for any age group.

Time: 5 minutes preparation and 15 - 20 minutes activity time
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Old Calendar
Empty box (in this case a shoe box)
Scissors
Glue stick

Method
Cut or tear the pictures from the calendar. If your child is a little young for scissors you may choose to do the cutting and they can then paste or tear and paste. As this is basically a collage it's not necessary to cut out every part of a picture or every picture, just pick what you (and your child) like the look of.



Begin pasting your pictures onto the box, ensuring that they overlap. If there are pictures that you particularly like, put them to one side to paste on last so that they're not covered by other pictures. In this case I really liked the picture and the quote that I used for the lid and I put it to one side for that purpose, so that little (gluey) hands couldn't get at it. Everything else was a free for all.



Look for the negative space as well, that is the gap left behind when you cut something out. That bird you've cut out will look lovely but the bird shape left behind can also be layered over other pictures.

So simple and before you know it, you're done. Glue your chosen image onto the lid, cut out the letters that spell your child's name from the 'months' and stick it onto the lid.
