I can Calendar- from plywood (Educational calendar for kids)
Great project! You can use a "6" as a "9" because there will never be a date 69 or 96, of course. There would never be a need for both numbers at the same time. Which is the key to figuring out what numbers you need, how often and on which blocks.There are 12 sides on two blocks. The only numbers you have to repeat are "0", "1" and "2" for the dates 11th and 22nd. These are the only double digit dates that exist. Two "0" are needed, not for 00, but for the digits under 10; as in 01, 02, 03,...,09. Since you can't fit all the digits between 1 and 9 on a single block, you'll need one "0" to go with numbers on one block and a "0" to go with the rest of numbers on the other block.To make every combination of dates from 01 to 31 with the 12 sides of both blocks; you need one block with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the sides and the other block has 0, 1, 2, 7, 8, 6/9 (that's "6" or "9") on the sides. I hope this helps.
Nice project! I made something similar to this when I was starting to learn woodworking but in the space where you have put "I Can Calendar" I put in a clock, which would also be a handy way to teach kids how to tell the time. I really like the look of the end grain on the plywood, I often forgot how nice it looks when finished!
Thank you I'm really excited
