Each month we bring you an A4 printable calendar for you to download and print to help you simplify and organise the month ahead. There’s room for adding your own activities plus loads of ideas to help you have the best month possible. Last month’s calendar is here.
Your January calendar is packed with dinner ideas, fun activities and meaningful ways to connect with family and friends. We’ve also included the daily prompts for the #365Mumtastic Instagram Community. Too easy!
Featured Dinner Ideas
Healthy Chicken Skewers: This recipe makes sticking to your ‘healthy’ New Year’s Resolution so easy. Great for the BBQ.
Homemade Tacos: Try making one of these four taco seasonings for a quick mince meal.
Lamb Filo Cigars: A hit with the kids, this one is great for taking to a summer party.
Chicken and Tomato Pasta: A recipe that’s equally good served cold for a lunch salad or hot for dinner.
Fresh Baked Salmon: A super-easy dish that is sure to be a hit.
Tofu and Veggies: This super simple vegan dinner recipe bakes up on a single baking sheet.
Lemon Chicken: Another one-dish wonder that’s a breeze to prepare.
Churro Cupcakes: Have you tried Churro? OMG, so good! Especially when all that flavour is in a cupcake. Try this one for sure.
Choc Chip Quinoa Cookies: The kids will never know there’s the goodness of quinoa hiding in their cookies.
Stuffed Cheese Pull Apart Bread: A terrific afternoon tea snack or something special to take to a barbecue.
Healthy Choc-Caramel Fudge Bites: These deliciously moreish bites are actually packed full of good nutrition.
Activities for the Kids

Adventure Jar: Make a bucket list of local places you want to visit, map them out and tick them off throughout the year.
Act Out a Favourite Book: Take your favourite book and create a play around the plot and characters.
DIY Window Paint: Quick to make and (luckily) to wash off, this recipe for window paint is the bomb.
Curly Paper Flowers: Even little kids can quickly master this fun activity.
Drawing Prompts for Inspiration
Use the Instagram #365Mumtastic daily prompts as inspiration for your child’s drawings: “What can I draw, Mum?” Try giving them the daily prompt – then take a photo of their creation for the Instagram community to see!
Connecting with others
Bake Muffins: Make one batch of Carrot and Quinoa Muffins for afternoon tea for the kids and take the second batch around to an elderly neighbour. Stop in for a chat.
Picnic: Call a friend and ask if she’s free for lunch then take around a picnic to enjoy with her and her kids.
Pub Crawl Date Night: Go on a date with your man. Here are 101 Date Night Ideas to choose from and none of them are expensive or fussy. We like the pub crawl idea best!
Bike Ride: How long has it been since you’ve ridden your bike over to see a mate? Take the kids, or set out on your own.
