DIY Calendar

Assalamualaikum & Marhaba!

We made this super easy diy magnetic calendar to review our days of the week and weather.  Everything is from Bugaboo City except for the days of the week and months. I can’t remember where I had printed those from, but I had already laminated them so I used them (Bugaboo City’s are much cuter).  There are a bunch of adorable add-ons that I did not include in our calendar. 

This will be the first introduction to a calendar with dates, months, etc. for the kids. I really like that the thermometer is simplified for younger children.  What a great way to incorporate the idea of temperature! Layaan loves to count to 100 and this will be great practice to review her number skills.  We made pockets out of construction paper taped to the back of our board to store all the other pieces. 

The kids already love it and I am so pleased with how it looks and adds a pop of color to our homeschooling room.

We are going to wrap up our winter theme soon.   Layaan, Muhammad, and I made an arctic sensorial bin using fake snow and arctic animals together.  I also printed out nomenclature cards of the animals in Arabic to match with the toys.  This activity is perfect for all age groups.  You can make it as easy and as challenging as you need for the child’s age.

Parks are the best place to be active, explore, and even learn!  On our last visit, we found seeds and leaves scattered all throughout the playground.  Using a large stick, I wrote the numbers 1 through 5 in Arabic into the sand.  Layaan and I collected the leaves and placed the correct amount under each number together.  She had so much fun with it, I figured we could continue the game at home using the seeds.  This is a great fall and winter activity!
