Melissa & Doug My Magnetic Daily Calendar
Ages 3+
What is today? For a child, that simple question can have so many answers--and this daily calendar helps satisfy them all! Kids will feel a greater sense of control and responsibility when they help post the day of the week, date, weather, and special events on the large magnetic board for all to see. There's even a space to post their mood--an excellent way to open communication and encourage children to gauge their own emotions. Updating the information is simple: Simply take a preprinted magnet from the lower magnetic board (which hangs below the calendar to keep magnets within easy reach). Then place it on the calendar to fill in the information . . . or make a custom magnet by writing on one of two dry-erase magnet tiles! There are fields for day, date, season, weather, temperature, activities, holiday, and mood.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Help the child fill in the calendar details in the blue panel. Talk about the names for the day, date, months, and year as you identify the proper tiles and put each one in its place.
  • Ask the child to look, listen, and feel to make observations about the day's weather.
  • Ask the child to slide the arrow marker to record the temperature and place one or more tiles to describe the weather. Identify the season as well, talking about how the day's weather relates to it.
  • Talk about the different activities planned for the day or any special holidays, and help the child find one or more tiles for the activities area.
  • Look at the different emotions tiles and ask the child to identify the face that matches the way he or she is feeling today. Or offer the child a dry-erase marker to draw a face on the blank yellow circle to match his or her mood.
  • Use the blank rectangular tile to create your own holidays, activities, or weather descriptions using a dry-erase marker. Then wipe away the writing to use it again!

Suitable for ages 3 years old and up.

Jen C.: a few months ago

We love this calendar. It helps our daughter learn the days. We get to talk about our day and what the upcoming days are. As well, we talk about our feelings as it has the emotions tiles. We get to understand what she's feeling and why. The only issue we have is that there isn't a lot of Canadian holidays or event magnets but we will make our own!

Sara: a few months ago

My 3 year old loves this calendar. He needs help with it because there are a lot of pieces, but he wouldnt learn if I wasn’t helping him.

Elle: about a year ago

My son is 3 and yes, there are too many pieces for his age. I removed and stored several of the magnets (e.g., the seasonal ones) so he's not tempted. Otherwise, great tool to introduce concept of days, seasons, weather and even mood!

Patricia: about a year ago

Love thid product, it will make a super fun/learning tool for our 5yo grandaughter!

Elizabeth: more than a year ago

So many parts. I often ignore the age recommendations and I probably should have paid attention this time. It's a little too advance for my two year old but this will definitely be perfect for when she is older. It's bright, colourful, and easy to use.

ashley: more than a year ago

Love this. My daughter who's 3 loves learning her days of the week and numbers. Just wish it also had more Canadian holidays.

Amanda: more than a year ago

I love this calendar, we got it for my sons 5th birthday and he loves it , he is always asking about the date and what were doing today etc so it was perfect . he loves changing it every morning to reflect the day and seeing the words is helping him remember how to spell them. All the pieces in view on the bottom panel can be somewhat distracting so we fold it up and behind the main board which really helps .

so happy to add this to our homeschool room...the kids enjoy filling out their daily calendar!!

Olivia: more than a year ago

Good quality product but my 3-year old was overwhelmed by all the pieces. I think it will be a good learning tool when she turns 4 though.

Sarah: more than a year ago

Seems like a good product, but too advanced for my 3 yr old son. Maybe in a few months or when is 4.
