Create Fun Shapes from Paper with an Origami Desk Calendar

Craft mad kids can enjoy a selection of fun and novelty themed page-a-day box set calendars which might keep them busy for just a little while every day too. I'm hugely into arts and crafts myself and I love my boxed origami desktop set that I get every year.
For anyone who enjoys paper folding, an origami calendar is a really great choice to make because everything needed is in the box. You get to create your own cool little items out of a single square of paper such as animals, flowers, boats, decorations and shapes.
If a child receiving this doesn't already know some origami then there are instructions included as well. Overall, I think it is one for older kids who can not just read but also understand how the folding techniques work.
Lots of kids and adults love Disney. There is a daily Disney box set calendar that has wonderful color images taken from their well-loved feature films or a charming piece of concept art to enjoy. Along with the images are short pieces of text like quotes. You might see Pluto, Cinderella, Dumbo, Tangled, Snow White, Bambi, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, Wreak it Ralph and more favorite characters from this franchise.

Drawing mad children may enjoy a daily doodle version, not shown, which gives rough sketches and prompts every day to inspire the owner to draw. This is a good way to get a youngster into the habit of regular sketching and thinking about that process through the year. A good way to get those creative brain cells engaged and encouraging practice. I like the look of the following crafts version too.

Younger children may not be interested or old enough to work on activity type calendars in which case cute images are a good option instead. This is a simple handmade project style of calendar with things to make such as finger puppets and magnets that could be ideal for older kids to enjoy.
