Believe it or not, tomorrow is January 1st of a brand new year which means a NEW CALENDAR. I don’t know about you, but I’m over the fuzzy baby animals. SO for the better part of a week in early December we worked on handprint and footprint pictures to use in our 2013 calendar. We gave them to my husband, Steve, for his office and to my parents for Christmas (and of course one for our fridge).
After we made the pictures I scanned them and saved them on a CD at CVS. Then I loaded the pics of the pics (lol) onto my computer at home and uploaded them into a calendar template using Shutterfly (a photo/card etc webservice – google it). Shutterfly had the best deal at the time, but there are other sites to use. TIP: google search for coupons for these places to use when you check out – I saved an additional $15 ! I mixed in pictures of the kids on the calendar pages too 🙂 It turned out so cute!
These pictures are what we did, but be creative and come up with some on your own! There is no right or wrong. If you have older children have them draw/paint pictures instead of doing the hand/foot prints!
