Happy 2017! With a New Year, comes a new art calendar printable – this freebie was such a hit last year, we decided to update it for 2017.
This mini calendar only requires 6 sheets of card stock or thicker paper, scissors, art supplies of your choice and some creativity! Once you’ve printed out the calendar, simply cut along the crop lines and pass on to your kids to decorate with drawings, collages etc! This is the perfect activity to put in a small bag with some crayons and throw into a backpack or purse for on-the-go art-making (it’s a restaurant lifesaver!).
You can download the files below, and if anyone wants to get *extra* creative, here are some ideas that go beyond markers and paint:
- Paste on some found items from nature
- Recycle some old paper & collage
- Create stamped patterns with vegetables, bubble wrap, or toilet paper rolls
- Use up some scrap fabric
- Punch some holes in patterns and thread with yarn
Do your budding artists want to share their final calendars? We love seeing pics! Tag us (@barleyandbirch or #barleyandbirch) with your mini works-of-art – we can’t wait to see and share the creativity of our b & b’ers! Love this? Want to pass it on? Please, please do! Our only request is that if you repost somewhere, you include a shout-out back to us with the original link to this post instead of a direct link to the files – we appreciate it!
