Its not easy honestly..I underestimated the time and effort. and we could have done much better.
But for someone who is artistically challenged, I think its a good first attempt.
So what you need.
1. Tons of patience
2. Loads of line drawing ability
3. A good amount of calculating mind
4. A white sheet of chart paper
6. Scale/ Ruler
7. Decorating materials
8. Sketch pens
10. Tons of patience
How to do it
1. Dont lose patience
2. Divide the chart paper into two and then into twelve parts. What I did was fold it into half horizontally then I measured the vertical side and divided it into six kind of equal parts.
3. then again divide each of that equal 12 equal parts in such a way that you can accomodate the number days 30/31/28
4. Write the name of the months
5. Write the numbers..in our case, R wrote some, she got bored repeating so I wrote the rest
5. Let the kid decorate the empty boxes…In my case, this is where the patience was tested to the core…she created a mess, but I was in zen state and just let her do what she wanted
6. Near the name of the month, you can do some drawing of the significance like we did here for Diwali and R’s birthday 🙂
Thats it…calender for 2013 all ready 🙂
