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.
The November calendar is packed with dinner ideas, fun activities and meaningful ways to connect with family and friends.
Featured Dinner Ideas
Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops – Sweet, tropical flavours turn the humble pork chop into a real crowd pleaser
One-Pot Chicken Alfredo – This is a glorious dish that starts with tender pan-fried chicken breast that’s finished in a luxurious cream sauce that will blow your mind.
Crock Pot Maple Dijon Chicken Drumsticks – Don’t put the slow cooker away just yet! It’s far too convenient and you can make some warm weather recipes like this one.
Mexican Avocado and Blueberry Salsa Boats – The cutest possible way to serve a truly delicious vegetarian meal that will knock the kids’ socks off.
Moroccan Lamb Tagine – A mouth-watering dish that practically cooks itself. The kids will definitely want seconds of this one.
Cheesy Vegetarian Quesadillas – Do your kids love Mexican as much as mine do? We can’t help ourselves, it’s just too good!
Spring Rolls – These are made with beef mince and Vietnamese rice paper.
Panko Crusted Fish Fingers – These panko crusted fish fingers are super easy to make from scratch, and the taste leaves frozen fish fingers for dead.
Slow Cooker Mango Rice Pudding – Told you not to pack away the slow cooker! You can make this one as an after dinner, afternoon or breakfast treat.
No-Knead Cheese and Bacon Rolls – These are always a hit with the kids and are actually really easy (and really cheap!) to make yourself.
Homemade Berry Lollies – The lollies you’re having when you’re not having lollies (we should rename them the “Claytons Lollies”), the kids will have so much fun making these yummy morsels.
No-Bake Popcorn Slice – The only thing better than popcorn and chocolate is when you combine them together.
Activities for the Kids
Paper Beads – The kids can turn old picture books or magazines into paper beads for threading or jewellery making.
Avocado Boats – Keep the skins when you make the avocado salsa for dinner, because with just a few modifications, they make an excellent boat.
Make Your Own Pokemon Cards – download the printable template and encourage the kids towards some DIY Pokemon creations.
Straw Marble Maze – This is so easy to put together with a box and some straws. Make it as big or as simple as you like!
Drawing Prompts for Inspiration
Ideas for what the kids can draw this month:
Ideas to Bring Friends and Family Together
Melbourne Cup – The days of fancy Melbourne Cup lunches may be over (for now), but inviting your mum friends over for a cocktail and the Cup is feasible. Especially if you do an “unlucky dip” to find out which one of you has to do the school run in the middle of the Cup!. Make some Caramel Apple Martinis to toast the winners.
Street Christmas Party – Get in early with the street Christmas party this year and more people will be able to come. The kids will love playing these “Footpath Games” while the adults share a drink and a story.
Sausage Sizzle – This time of year it can be really tricky to see our besties when we being pulled in one direction or another. Grab some sausages, throw together an easy salad and invite your buddy and her family over for some Monday night bonding.
