Recycled child's painting on 18x12 paper for DIY art calendar

First, sift through the pile of your child’s artwork that has been piling up that you swear you’ll go through on day. I picked out this painting on a 18×12 piece of  paper.

Go online and find a printable calendar of the months of the year. I used this one, but anything you find to your liking will do.

This doesn’t have to be a recycled art work project– You could invite kids to paint or draw or collage or however they enjoy expressing themselves on a large piece of construction paper, watercolor paper, or poster board and then staple the printable calendar once the artwork is completed. Regardless if the art is new or old, this is a simple and artful way to celebrate the new year. After your calendar is done, mark important dates like birthdays and holidays and/or enjoy reading a story about the months of the year.

Happy New Year!
