Every year for almost a decade now, my sister and I have celebrated Canada Day by sending our sponsor children a calendar featuring Canadian scenes or icons. This year I decided we would make the calendars through Heritage Makers using playing cards. The calendar goes from July 2012 until June 2013. Each pack of cards makes 4 calendar sets which can then be hole punched in the corner and attached together with a ring, a ribbon, or something else.
When sharing this project with others, a couple of people suggested that it could be used as gifts for family members – especially non-Canadian family members – or as a teacher’s gift at the end of the school year. An easy gift to modify to be used at any time of year for any reason.
