My students save one favorite art project each month. These are glued onto a computer-generated calendar. I duplicate the months on white art paper, add a cover for the kid's to decorate and bind the pages together with the school's bookbinding machine. The calendar runs from May to the following April, so that it can be used immediately. As they flip the pages up, there is a place to glue the next piece of artwork on the back of the previous month. I trim down the paper the students use as the background for each project so that there is a naturally framed edge around it. This calendar provides a nice gift for parents and also showcases their art work throughout the entire year.
