Perpetual Calendar with Friends


I have quite a list of posts waiting on the back burner. This morning, I finally got time to snap the pictures for this one. 

Several months ago I came across this link/pin, and was inspired to make our own perpetual calendar.

I needle felted seasonal clothing for four wooden peg dolls. I'm excited to gain greater awareness of days, months and seasons passing through this simple ritual of keeping our daily calendar current.

In case you're thinking, "ok, two blocks, six sides each... waitaminit..." 

Here's how it works. Both blocks have 0, 1, and 2. One block has 3, 5, and 6, which doubles as 9. The other block has the 4, 7, and 8, to complete the set.

Now we just have to decide where we shall keep our calendar!

  1. This is so cool.
    The second I saw your picture, I said, "Awww," and then I started to figure out how two six-sided blocks could work for the numbers 1 to 31. I got as far as figuring out you only needed one each of 3 through 8. Thanks for explaining the rest so I could apply my brain to more useful things.
    And thanks for being amazing.
