Jahreskreis DIY

January, February, March, April - the annual clock never stands still! And when is spring, summer, autumn or winter? Our favourite little people have to learn all this first. But we also have a lightning-fast IKEA hack from Limmaland for the annual cycle. With a free printable craft template, of course. So you can playfully learn the months and seasons with your children. Let's go!

Learning the seasons and months with children

The earth orbits the sun once a year. That's why there are different seasons. And you can illustrate these to your children in a playful way with the annual cycle. Our craft idea is also ideal for kindergarten or primary school.

What you need to make the annual circle

  • an IKEA HEAT* cork coaster
  • the free crafting template from Limmaland
  • a pair of scissors
  • a pin

The cork trivet provides the perfect basis for many IKEA hacks for playful learning. So the next time you're at IKEA, pack yourself a pack of three.

Step 1: Print and cut out the year circle

Firstly, download the craft template for the annual circle. You can get the template for free via the form. Then print it out on slightly thicker paper and cut out the year circle. Make sure you don't forget the little pointer!

Step 2: Attach the year circle and pointer

Then grab the trivet from IKEA and place the craft template and the pointer on it. Use your pin to attach the pieces to the cork coaster. And you're ready to get started and learn the months and seasons with your children!

That's how quickly you can make a great educational game! You can find even more ideas for lightning-fast IKEA hacks at and in Limmaland. For example, what do you think of anXXL board gameor a self-made mud kitchen?
