Before hand: Cut out the festivals strips.
To start: Lay out the calendar sheets.
The Cubs then place each festival strip on the month they think it happens (some are easy, some are hard).
When done, the leader removes correct combinations and the Cubs try again with the remainder. By a process of elimination, they quickly work out the correct order.
