Christmas Gifts - Childrens' Art Calendar

We have occasionally made calendars with pictures of our children as Christmas presents for devoted grandparents and great-grandparents.

These have been gratefully received, but last year we did something different - pictures by our children rather than of our children.

We have four children, so they chose 3 of their best pieces of art each, so we had one for each month:

A lizard by my (then) 5 year old

An Egyptian by my (then) 9 year old.
An ice-cream by my (then) 3 year old.

A butterfly by my (then) 7 year old.

They were easy to make, as we simply scanned their art and then used an online photo company to print the calendars. There seem to be regular offers of 50% off, so we waited for one of these before we had them printed.
They were very well received, and may become a regular Christmas present as long as the children are prolific artists.
