The summer holidays are finally in full swing, and you know us, we believe any fun times can always be improved by introducing some sweet crafts! Which is exactly how the idea for this little DIY came about…

This is the perfect craft to get the kids involved with. Getting children interesting in art and crafts at a young age is an amazing way to boost creativity, not to mention beat boredom.

Today we’ll be making an interactive calendar so you can keep track of all of the memorable stuff your family get up to over the summer break.

This simple and sweet calendar is perfect for keeping track of sunny days and fun activities. You can make it in four easy steps!

  1. Take a large piece of black card for the backing
  2. On a smaller piece of white card draw rows to plot out the dates of summer – make sure you add in all of the fun activities you have planned.
  3. Secure the white card onto the black card with VELCRO® Brand Super Slim Stick On
  4. Now all you have to do is stick a gold star or smiley face next to each day you’ve done something to remember, or maybe add a little note about a special memory from the day.  

Now simply display your chart somewhere you can see it every day – Let the fun begin!
