Calendars for Preschoolers

A must for every home with a preschooler, calendars offer so many learning opportunities for young kids. They can learn the days of week, months of the year and names of the seasons. They can learn to recognize numerals in sequence, better understand concepts such as tomorrow, last week, and next month – and so much more. Putting a little money (or time) into a calendar for your preschooler is well worth the investment.

Looking to buy rather than make your own? Here are some top-rated suggestions:
