I really don’t have a creative bone in my body. I need all the help I can get in creating daily activities and readings for my kids! I am so glad that I can rely on the help of fellow bloggers and websites to help me figure out what to do with our lives during the day!!!
Seriously….these are my favorite calendar helpers. I print them every month and plaster them on our wall by our homeschool area. I look to them for ideas and readings every day not only for my kids but for me too!
And for summer there are some great ones coming out to help you if you think you may run out of ideas for your kids when they say, “I’m bored!”
Must have calendars for moms just like me -
The Joy Dare Collection is free and gives you ideas to prompt your mind when making a gratitude journal. Each month a new calendar comes out with daily prompts to write down the joys in your life. This is one of my favorite calendars by one of my favorite writers, Ann Voskamp. She is the author of One Thousand Gifts and the blogger behind A Holy Experience. I have been blessed not only by her words as she writes them but also as she speaks them. I have heard her speak at the Allume conference two times and each time she has left me with wanting more not only from her but from myself living out my life for God.
Do you pray for your husband each day? This is a great calendar that is free and is from my friend Kat at Inspired to Action. She also has one for kids too! I have them both in my Bible so I can use them during my quiet time.
This free prayer calendar is from two of my awesome bloggy friends at The Mob Society…. Brooke and Eryn. I love these girls! Mob stands for Mothers of Boys. This calendar gives you prayer prompts so you can specifically pray for your boys each day.
Making the days count calendar is another free calendar from Homeschool share blog and is another must have. It gives you daily activities to make your day count with your kids. I love this site. It has helped me so much in our new adventure of homeschool!
This free bi-weekly meal planning calendar is one of my favorites from another friend Kelly at The Nourishing Home. She includes links to the recipes too! She posts them all at The Better Mom where she is a contributor. These meals are healthy and nutritious and yummy!
Another free meal planning calendar I use is from The Holy Spirt Led Homeschooling blog. This is a favorite blog also and is written by Jamerrill Stewart. She is absolutely lovely. You may want to check out her free printables too especially the Free and Frugal homeschool planner pack.
Here is a great free summer activity calendar from Motherhood on a Dime. Each day an activity is listed for you and your kids to do together!
This awesome summer survival calendar from my friend The Confident Mom is one of my favorites. I love her weekly household planner and this one is sure to please. You will get ideas every day from May thru August! The cost is $5 but it is so worth it! I just got mine!
I hope you take a look at these wonderful resources. You will never be able to say you don’t know what to do! I would love to hear what calendars you use to help you get creative. I think I may need more to put on my wall!!!
