Why do we have seasons?
This visual calendar of the earth's rotation around the sun is the perfect introduction to seasons and calendar work for small children.
This is a two-layer calendar. Even though both layers move, it's designed for you to keep the top layer (the sun) stationary while you move the earth layer around it.
Choose with day each week you'll move the earth forward, and then build its movement into your weekly rhythm.
Did you know that a year might have 53 Sundays in it, depending on when the 1st of January falls? This is why you see 53 weeks on this calendar, and not 52.
All files are designed to print on standard letter-size (8.5" x 11") paper.
You will receive a high resolution PDF of this calendar.
Print this as many times as you'd like for personal or classroom use. This is an activity you can use every year, over and over again.

To assemble these calendars, you will need:
- The ability to open PDF files and print them
- To print multiple sheets of paper. I recommend printing on heavy card stock
- (Optional, highly recommended) To laminate paper
- To cut out circles and arrows
- A needle to poke a hole in the center of each circle (for the brad)
- (Optional) A needle or hole punch to make a hole for the string to hang your calendar
- (Optional) ~ String and a hook if you want to hang your calendar
- A small brad for securing the four layers and arrow together
This calendar measures 8" in diameter, and is designed to be hung on a wall or placed on a table. It is the perfect size to fit into any office space or home decor, and it is just right for small hands to use.
This calendar design was created by Lori Oster of Luftmensch Designs.

I made this for each one of my grandchildren. It’s a cool way to get them to think about the length of a year.
Easy to put together, and such stunning detail.
