You can find many free calendars online, however not all are geared towards kids. Some are too boring for them, and others look too complicated. This is why this resource will be helpful for any kid who has something to plan in advance. Be it on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis, you can either simply print our ready-made calendars, or let your kid make their own with fun images and quotes before printing them out and then coloring them or decorating them to their liking.
These are calendars that can be used the whole year: simply print out the sheet or template for the next month and start adding new entries.
