DIY Printable Photo Calendar

Get your camera ready and wait for picture-perfect weather throughout the year. Then have your child hold up the month-appropriate sign (download our clip-art) and smile prettily — or snowily — for the camera. By December, you'll have a year's worth of seasonal snapshots for a photo calendar.

Introduction

You can compile photographs into a homemade calendar album-style, or get one made using a service at Shutterfly (choose from several styles; shutterfly.com) and let them handle the printing and delivery. (Tip: They make great family gifts too!)

materials

  • White printer paper

  • Printer

  • Clipboard (optional)

steps

  1. Print clip-art on printer paper.

  2. Have family member pose with clip-art sign. (Tip: Fastening it to a clipboard prevents the paper from warping and unifies photography.) Add embellishments to your photo calendars or personalize special dates with handwritten text.

  3. After a full year of monthly photographs are captured, compile them in a calendar.
