In 1752, the calendar in England and the colonies was adjusted so it was the same calendar used in much of the rest of Europe. When there were two calendar systems, dates could be shown two different ways depending on the calendar you were using. This made everything, including recordkeeping, confusing.
In order to adjust the calendar, many changes were made, and in the end, September 2, 1752, was followed by September 14, 1752. Then, the next year, the days were numbered in order. What kind of calendar would you create if you could design it any way you wanted to? That’s what today’s calendar worksheet is all about!

Build a Calendar Activity Pack: This 47-page calendar activity pack can be used to help younger children who are just learning their numbers or kindergarten to lower elementary-aged children who would have fun making their own calendar. It includes both traditional American holidays and themes (such as the 4th of July) along with general themes (such as princesses and trucks). It includes options to create a calendar through the year 2099. The calendar is assembled by cutting out the squares chosen for the month and gluing them onto the calendar page. Months and years are provided to trace. For very young children, there is a number line in the back of the activity pack that will help them know which number comes next on the calendar. You can do a whole month, the whole year, or only one day at a time. It’s up to you!
