 Giant printable wall calendar by Luftmensch Designs

These cards don't just fit your wall calendar, they are the perfect size to be used for lots of other work, too.

Here are just some ideas of extension work you can do with these cards:

  • Sort the cards by holiday type (e.g. religious holidays/bank holidays/school holidays/etc.)
  • Use the cards for language work by creating a tray pairing a holiday with small objects that are associated with that holiday
  • Older children can arrange the cards in different ways: alphabetically, by date, by type of special day, etc.
  • Younger children can arrange the cards by color. These cards feature beautiful watercolor illustrations, and they are perfect for color sorting.
