The article presents some tips on creating a taste for calendars in the mind of children. Parents can talk about how they use calendars to plan and mark the passage of time. They can also photocopy the pages of a 2005 calendar, or use a computer program to print out a 12-month calendar. Staple each month to the bottom portion of the oak tag, leaving the top half blank for the child to draw. Parents can also invite the child to decorate the calendar, which the child can give to the grandparents, relatives, or neighbors for the start of the new year. Ultimately one can cover the drawing with clear contact paper.
