What things to do in May? May is the month of growth, optimism and love. Everything is turning green, birds are non stop singing, days are sunny but not too hot (at least on Northern Hemisphere) and there are many occasions to use the days for different family activities, playing with kids or just hanging out with friends. The say My is month of love and June is perfect for weddings. Makes sense, right?
We prepared some free printable calendars (all are completely free for personal use) to help you better organize your days and enjoy this beautiful month to its full advance. So don't ask what to do in May, just print the calendar of your choice, enter some typical May activities and have fun!

Did you know May got its name after Maia, the Greek goddess of fertility? Pagans often celebrated May the first as the beginning of year or beginning of the summer. In Ireland it's still widely popular as unofficial holiday called Beltane.
May has an interesting feature. No other month in the year starts or ends on the same day of the week, leap years included. Here is another one: next year will always start on the same day of the week as May of this year.
Printable monthly calendar May 2017
May is part of the year when we spend a lot of time outdoors, but we still have many obligations to fulfil (the school year, for instance, is ending with numerous events) so these templates with flowers could help you to plan your activities and get you in the right mood at the same time.
It is also month with many more or less important holidays from International Labour Day on May 1st and Europe Day on May 9th to Star Wars Day (May the fourth/force be with you!) on May 4th and Towel Day (remembering Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy) on May 25th.
When is Mother's Day?
We should not forget Mother's Day, which is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries, including USA in Canada. This year it falls on May 10th. Like most of the holidays this one became over-commercialized in last decades and lost most of the original spirit, but it is still nice to reunite with one's own mother and the family if we moved away and lost contact.
Free printable monthly calendars for kids (May 2017)
Kids adore these cute calendars with teddy bears and lovely elephants. Huge empty blanks give you enough space to mark all the important events in this traditionally busy month.The school year (and academic year as well) is approaching the end, and, like it or not, we have to plan the holidays - some projects have to finish before the summer starts! We all know how certain institutions practically close the doors in June and stay closed up to September.
Plan wisely, seize the days and have a lot of fun.
We prepared three more calendar templates with bigger pictures which can also serve as worksheets. Which one do you prefer? A puppy or a teddy bear? Or maybe a bunch of adorable rascals from 3 a?
