With the help of a free software, I was able to created Fun & Free #TMWF Downloadable and Printable Calendars for yourupcoming and (likely hectic) holiday season! Fun to do with your kids or grandkids, and quite necessary with all of the holiday goings on sneaking up on us already.
The calendars print large enough so they are easy to ready, and they are in a different format that is a bit easier for my brain to manage- vertical days instead of horizontal (you’ll see)! See what you think and let me know!
THE IMAGES ARE VIEWABLE EXAMPLES ONLY – WINDOW SHOPPING IF YOU WILL! DOWNLOAD THE HIGH RESOLUTION FILES FROM THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!
f you’re a techy, use the symbol browser to edit your calendar from Power Point and add symbols like these:
♥ =family fun day
Ø =rest day for Mom or Dad
? =surprise for kids (get little gifts or hide something sweet under pillows for them when they awaken!)
≡ =(this symbol ≡ is commonly called a “hamburger” in the world of Geeks – use it to denote a day of family cooking or family dinner together at home).
These are just some ideas IF YOU NEED TO STAY IN. If you can get out, grab some of those tiny stickers of stars and check marks and turkeys and presents, etc. and build a family calendar together, or OMG – draw! 🙂
Expectations set during the holiday are GOOD, early and often, especially in blended families like mine! Watch your kids learn a new sense of “normal” even within the crazy world of this MESH and the craziness of the holidays. I hope this idea helps in some small way!
Here are some sticker sets which I’m sure Michael’s, Joann’s, Walmart, grocers – any store with school supplies will have!
Have fun and let me know if/how it helps set expectations. Make sure you build in days for YOUR NEEDS, YOUR OWN REST and RECUPERATION for the demands of the holidays. It is stressful, but this is a tool, hopefully, to help you manage that stress.
HAVE FUN! MOST IMPORTANTLY, Add #EveryDayLevity to your life!
