Save your calendar pages!

I still like to have a wall calendar at home even though our family uses an electronic calendar these days. This past year, I had a calendar from Dayspring which had beautiful illustrations with Bible verses for each month. Instead of just throwing the calendar away, I turned the pages into a project to send to my Compassion kids!

 First, I took apart the calendar, page by page.

 Then I trimmed the pages down to 8 1/2 x 11 inches.

 I pulled out some card stock and a glue stick. I mounted each of the pages onto some cardstock to strengthen the pages and to cover up last year's calendar pages.

We wrote letters to our Compassion kids yesterday and I was able to include these in our mailing. I hope they enjoy them!
