You have two options for creating a calendar in Google Slides: building one from scratch or using a pre-made template. We’ll dive into both methods below.

How To Create a Calendar in Google Slides from Scratch? 

Step 1: Start with a blank canvas: Open your Google Slides presentation and choose a new blank slide. This gives your calendar the most space to shine.

Step 2: Build the table: Click “Insert” then “Table.” Choose a 7×6 grid – perfect for a calendar layout.

Step 3: Fill in the blanks:  Type the days of the week across the top row. Then, fill in the remaining cells with the corresponding dates.
