Today's project with my preschooler was to make a calendar.We made a calendar of the days left in September & the rest of October. The point was to show her the days of the week, and to let her have her own calendar that she could count down to special events with.

She chose the sticker colour for playgroup & ballet class and put them on the calendar, then we chose special stickers for friends visiting, Grandma coming, etc.

She chose to hang it on the dishwasher, and is excited to show it off to everyone!


She didn't seem to "get" the order of the boxes.

Writing the numbers on each day was an opportunity to discuss counting.

Things I Would Change:

I'm thinking of cutting the weeks out & pasting them onto a separate paper, to help her to understand the order of the days.

Could have let her write the numbers on the days & spent more time discussing the numbers & counting.

Modeling Clay

Using modelling clay that my husband found at a dollar store, we've been outside numerous times, having fun learning how to make pinch pots and worms/snakes and all kinds of things.

Talia has a great time getting messy and playing with the clay, then leaving it to dry. But heaven forbid a bee or similar-looking insect pay a visit to the backyard while she's busy with her artwork! (She fer-reaks out, and wants to come inside immediately!) lol :)
