DIY School Agenda

Every year the kids need an agenda for school and I usually just buy the regular one from the school. This summer Robyn was exploring different crafts like sewing, painting, and scrapbooking, so I suggested that she make her own agenda!

I had just bought The Happy Planner Classic Paper Punch and Mini Discs for another project, so it took us no time at all to design a school agenda.

Robyn chose her favourite Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! for the cover of her agenda: the pretty pink, shimmery paper from Love You Always Specialty DSP.

I created the inside calendar pages (5.5″ x 8″) in Word and followed the same basic layout as her previous agendas. All she needed was space to write in her homework each day and spots for spelling words and notes. I printed the pages out on regular paper and Robyn punched the sides where the mini discs would be going. This is such a quick system for binding pages and we could easily add more pages as needed!

In fact, we did add a few pages just before school started – a full year calendar and folder for stickers.

And to mark the week’s page, Robyn also made an origami bookmark out of the same pink, patterned paper…

Robyn has been at school for just over a week now, and the agenda is working great. We only did pages up to the end of December and we will add the 2022 pages later.

Have you made any DIY projects for your kids lately? I would love to get some more ideas now that Robyn is in the craft mode!!

  1. Hi Leah,

    I’m contacting you because I found that I was not receiving a WordPress blog. I contacted that individual and she sent me a link to a WordPress site. When I checked it listed your site. I did receive this email today, but to make sure I’m still on your mailing list I decided to notify you. So, if you could check that I’m still on your list I’d appreciate it! Thank you in advance!

    Take care & God Bless!
