Season & Date Calendar Wheel

These are fantastic, I love them and think they are a great learning tool but in a fun way. You can personalise this to suit your child's own likes, make it as big or small as you like. You may make your wheels as big as the cardboard. You design this how ever you want, this is just for you to use as a template for your own.




Once I did the basics of writing in the information with a black marker, my 3 year old did all the decorating on her own. She was so proud of her art work and loved choosing the colours and stickers by herself.

You will need:
  • Cardboard of any size, colour or shape of your choice.
  • Extra cardboard to cut out 3 circles.
  • Brass fasteners (see picture below)
  • Coloured markers
  • Decorations - stickers, glitter, felt/foam shapes.
  1. Write out the days, months and seasons on each circle. I used a ruler to evenly mark out each section.
  2. Decorate the circles with colour.
  3. Push a hole (with a skewer or very tip of scissors) through the centre of the circle and through the cardboard where you will be placing the circles.
  4. Sit circle in place so the holes line up and push the brass fasteners through and then flatten out the back two arms to be flat against the cardboard.
  5. Decorate the entire sheet of cardboard.
  6. DON'T FORGET TO ADD AN ARROW so you know where to face the day, month and season to each day.

You can make more circle wheels if you would like with-
  • Weather for the day - Sunny, Wet, Cold, Snowing, Windy
  • Date of the month - 1, 2, 3, 4, etc
  • How I'm feeling today- Happy, Sad, Grumpy, Tired
