If these walls could talk
For something large-scale and more permanent, use chalkboard paint to create a calendar right on your wall. Designate a different coloured chalk to each family member to keep everyone organized.

Art attack
Declutter the front of your fridge by recycling your child’s artwork into a monthly calendar. Turn it into a craft session by having her draw a picture for each month.

A smile a day
Display your favourite family memories in a fun photo calendar. Use a site like lulu.com to create your own, where you can add personal notes and reminders.
