Keeping a schedule during the school year is extremely important. The best way to keep everyone's events and plans scheduled and organized is to have a family calendar. Seems simple right? Well it can be, but it can also be hard to get a system in place that works for you and is easy to keep up with.
Designate a Calendar Spot
Find a place in your home that is convenient for everyone to find. Having a small personal calendar is great, but finding a home for a larger calendar will help the whole family. Using chalkboard paint is an easy and creative way to make a monthly calendar on any wall.
Give each member of your family a color. Write events and activities for this person only in their designated color. This will help you to quickly see who is available or busy on certain days.
Use Multiple Calendars
Want to organize more than events? Use this calendar space to hold more than one calendar. Make a meal calendar, a field trip calendar, or a workout calendar. Make your calendar space work for your life.
