Calendar of Monthly Holidays – Plan Your Craft Blogging Out!

Sharing is caring!

The older my son gets, the more fun the holidays are now that he can participate and get involved. Blogging about crafts and activities for holidays requires being a few weeks ahead so I’ve been keeping a list to make planning easier. I thought I’d share my brainstorming — if you know of any other holidays that you celebrate or create crafts for, I’d love to hear them so I can add them!

If you’re looking for more resources, there is a fun round-up of monthly themed activities at Living Montessori Now & more holiday ideas at Family Fun Crafts.
