Christmas 2019 - More Day-to-Day Calendars & Another Giveaway!

Yesterday I was very happy to share with you two Day-to-Day Calendars from Andrew McMeel and announced a giveaway for one. Today I am delighted to share with you three more of their wonderful calendars and one more giveaway as well!

Paper Airplane Fold-a-Day 2020 Calendar

Did You Know? 2020 Day-to-Day Calendar
Easy Origami 2020 Fold-a-Day Calendar
Publisher - Andrews McMeel

Favorite Features -
  • A new interesting bit of trivia or origami or paper airplane to create each day for a year - how fun is this!
  • The Origami designs are easy to follow and the back of each day's directions provide a colorful origami paper to use when folding the following day's design.
  • The paper airplanes are colorful and so much fun to fold - and then to display . . . or play with - great fun all the way around!
  • The trivia and fun facts are interesting and sure to give whomever you give it to some fun conversation starters each day - with bonus facts on the back of each day's page.
  • Encourages creativity and learning new things
Andrews McMeel says: "Create an enviable aeronautic fleet with the Paper Airplane Fold-a-Day 2020 Calendar. Origami designer David Mitchell and paper-airplane expert Kyong Lee combine forces to present 300-plus designs from 40 original models based on real-life military and commercial airplanes as well as imaginative aircraft designs for a year’s worth of flying fun! Don’t throw away yesterday’s calendar page! Instead, flip it over for colorful airplane artwork, then fold the plane using the step-by-step instructions on today’s calendar page.

  • Large size paper (7¾" x 6") produces folded airplanes large enough to really fly.
  • Paper size is proportionate to standard 8½" x 11", so you can fold these planes using paper around the home, too.
  • Unique, fold-around-box turns into the calendar stand.

Cultivate mindfulness and creativity every day with the Easy Origami 2020 Fold-a-Day Calendar. The daily practice of this Japanese art promotes relaxation and stimulates memory as you learn paper-folding techniques throughout the year. Create hundreds of origami models, including animals, flowers, and so much more for a year’s worth of stress-free fun.

  • The calendar provides everything needed to learn origami, including patterned paper, tabbed reference cards, and easy instructions for hundreds of origami models.
  • Promotes creativity, cultivates mindfulness, and stimulates memory.
  • Great gift for people looking to relax or add creativity to their lives.

Entertain and impress your friends, family, or coworkers with fun and interesting facts from the Did You Know? 2020 Day-to-Day CalendarWith categories such as history, art, pop culture, humor, science, people, plus many more, this calendar offers all new trivia, unusual but true facts, and amazing stories to help make you smarter. As an added bonus, the back of each page includes Daily Extra content such as puzzles, jokes, lists, quotes, activities, tips, and trivia."

Again, I love these Day-to-Day Calendars - they make such thoughtful and fun gifts - for Christmas and every day of the year! The Origami and Paper Airplane calendars are amazing - and such a terrific way to encourage creativity - I know my grandsons will love these calendars for sure! The trivia calendar is filled with surprising and interesting facts - a great way to add a bit of fun to every day!
