My First Calendar


Since starting school back in September, JJ has become a little obsessed with the days of the week. Is it P.E. today? Is it the weekend yet? What day is scooter day? But when is Friday? We seem to have the same conversations everyday about where we are in the week, and then there's the seasons! When is it summer? Is it warm enough for shorts? It goes on and on!

So, when I heard Danilo had created My First Calendar range to help little ones get to grips with the days of the week, months and seasons, I was extremely excited! Could this bring the end of the what day is it and what are we doing today questions?!!

The My First collection are the first interactive calendars aimed at preschoolers through to Key Stage 1 children and with a choice of Peppa Pig, PJ Masks and Paw Patrol there's a favourite character for everyone. 

We were lucky enough to be gifted with the Paw Patrol calendar and from the minute it arrived JJ wanted to have a look at it and plan out his week and set the weather!

The calendars are full of their favourite characters and offer enough sections to excite them and keep them interested everyday, but not too many meaning they don't get overwhelmed. 

The calendars are sturdy, wipe clean, with some magnetic areas and moving parts, making them very easy to use. You can start helping your little ones use the calendar and as they get older they can use it independently. 

For us it was some independent use of the calendar and then some guidance as I helped read him the weather and explain the different elements to the calendar. 

As JJ's currently poorly with Chickenpox he's already planned his Monday!!

Available for £8.99 and with free delivery directly from Danilo, it might just help your child get to grips with the days of the week too! 

Keep an eye out for one of these fab calendars in this month's competition!!!!
