Grimm's Annual Calendar Ring
Decoration Set for Annual Calendar

This unique and beautiful perpetual calendar, developed out of Montessori education, was designed to help children learn the rhythm of the year. 

The Annual Calendar Ring set from Grimm's Spiel & Holz of Germany includes 12 segments, each representing one month of the year, and colors represent seasons:  green shades for spring, yellow for summer, red for fall, and blue for winter.

Every Sunday, move a marble or candle one hole from left to right for the current month to represent the week.

Add one marble daily to the outer ring of 31 holes, which represent the days of the month. (You may wish to assign one color to each day of the week, for instance, Monday-purple; Tuesday-red, Wednesday-yellow, etc.)

At the end of the month, clear the ring in anticipation of the new month and move one segment forward.

The optional set of 12 decorative figures (which can also be used in our birthday ring) can be used to represent each month of the year, and includes one brass candle holder.

Place extra marbles or seasonal treasure found in nature in the wooden bowl at the center.

Set includes:

  • Wooden baseplate with 31 holes for marbles (may be flipped over to display other objects)
  • 12 Wooden Sections in Frame representing each month of the year (one color for each month)
  • 35 Wooden Marbles (one color for each day of the week)
