My Disney loving little girl is 4 and wanting to be "in school" so badly. We homeschool and so she sees her big brothers doing school and she is dying to learn it all too. Well, Mommy isn't ready to start formal schooling yet but thought it would be fun to do calendar time with her this next year and have some fun while learning the rest of her letters and numbers. Since we are a Disney LOVING family (might be the understatement of the century) I knew our Calendar board needed to be Disney themed.
I wanted a larger area to work with so I started with a 4ft x 3 ft bulletin board. I bought some red wrapping paper and black grosgrain ribbon with white dots at Wal-Mart.
After covering the board I added the black and white crazy circles Calendar Chart. I designed some monthly headers that are red with white polka dots and some daily calendar pieces in both Mickey and Minnie designs. This will allow us to do either one as she wants or...
we can mix them up and work on patterns.
I also wanted a weather wheel so that we would have the chance to watch the weather and talk about the changes we see in it. So I found a weather clip art set on Etsy. I enlarged the "What is the Weather today?" word art (and changed the colors) to use as my title. Then I found a Mickey clip art that I could enlarge and I made a wheel also using the weather clip art set....
(I would love to give the wheel as a Freebie but since I purchased the clip art I am not able to do that.)
Next I made some little rectangles out of black cardstock and labeled them Letter, Number, & Theme. I hope that I will come up with some books and fun activities to go with various themes throughout the year. Then I started searching on the internet and I found these FREE DOWNLOADS for Disney Alphabet and Number cards.

My daughter LOVES her new board and is already changing the weather wheel daily and cannot wait for us to start "school" next couple of weeks.
