I used to be able to find colorful kid-friendly calendars for each month with national days listed. Now I just find lists of days on this site. Do you still post the monthly calendars?


Wednesday 31st of May 2023

Hi Tammy. We discontinued the calendars about a year ago.

Is there an August 2022 printable calendar available? We use it at the school for planning different activities. I used to be able to find the printable calendar each month but I don't see August.


Thursday 4th of August 2022

Thank you for your question! We have discontinued our calendars, and will not be making them in the future. However, we do have a full list of the national days in August which you can find here. This page contains even more national days than our calendars previously had!

We have also started making free printable word searches featuring the national days of each month. You can find all the word search printables under the puzzles tab on the main menu bar.
