Oh boy! I have been furiously working on this updated calendar. I have made this as a parent gift for years. I have literally had parents in tears over these. Who wouldn't want this treasured keepsake? Can someone please make me one with dog prints??? 
I have updated this treasure with my favorite graphics from Melonheadz of course. It is so adorable I can't stand it!


Have you heard of mybinding.com? Love, love, love my new binding machine. I used this all last year for our weekly class books & now for my newly revamped calendar gifts. Is that my hand? Um, no it's the hubs hand. He is such a good helper & is much more precise than me. It took him under 5 minutes to bind this calendar. 
Here is a peek inside this newly updated product. Actually, one of my first products on teacherspayteachers.com was my handprint calendar. It is so much cuter now!
See that cute turkey handprint? That is not a student handprint, it's mine. This is what my parents are getting from their 40 something year old daughter. I'm totally kidding. No, I'm actually not! They would love it! 

I wanted to provide my students a sample of how to color their calendars. I wanted to provide you with a sample to display for your students as well. They are so visual, aren't they? 

As you can see, the calendar is dated. I personally am using the dated calendar templates because I am just anal like that. If they made a number too big or backwards, I might just lose my mind-o. I did include blank templates if you would like your students to write in their own numbers. 

I also included at least 3 different options for each month's handprint page with a cutesy little poem to match each handprint. I've changed some handprints and poems to go with the adorable graphics. 

I broke down the cost for you since I am such an excellent mathematician. I do teach 1st grade math and all. It would literally cost you 20 cents per student if you had a class size of 25! You're welcome. 

I will be updating this calendar every year. Did I mention that? You're welcome. 

I would love to give 5 away to the first five stalkers to comment with their email. Happy handprinting people! 

To purchase the calendar grab it here. It's on sale for a limited time. You're welcome.

  14. So cute! I would love to make this with my students but I don't know how I would find the time! Do the pages say anything about hand prints or could my students draw pictures instead?

  26. Hi Mel,
    I have a logistics question that you might have experience with. I am wondering how you are able to get a class of 20+ with painted hand to do 12 months per kid? Do you do a month a day? or Do you have a parent helper? Just wondering how I am going to pull this off . Thanks so much.
