When my kids were very small, we had monthly themes on our bulletin board, for our homeschool lessons, and to order our daily lives.
As the kids get older, the themes aren’t quite so vivid. I enjoy the liturgical calendar, the natural cycles of the world, and celebrating the flow and small events in our lives.
We loved these themed Calendar Connections.
