Sharing Lists and Libraries within a site collection in Sharepoint Foundation 2010

I have a single site collection created in Sharepoint Foundation 2010.  

I have a calendar that "lives" on the parent site that I need to display on several different subsites within this collection.  I also have a document library and an announcements list that both "live" on one subsite and I need to display on other subsites within the collection.  I don't want to duplicate the content within these lists and libraries in order to make it available in multiple places.  What can I do?  

FYI - I am currently set up in Sharepoint as a "full control owner" user.  I'm NOT a developer, but I do have access to Sharepoint Designer 2010.

the easiest method (although not necessarily the best looking) is to use Page Viewer web part.

your other options are to buy a 3rd party web part (Bamboo has one) or ... there are ways to do this with coding... but it sounds like you don't want a coding option.

i prefer not to go the coding route, it's really not my forte.  But if coding affords the best the solution to this problem, then I'm open to your suggestions.

actually, calendar overlay is in sharepoint 2010 and that may do the trick for you.
on a subsite, create a new calendar.  go to manage views and select calendar overlay->new calendar.  you should be able to reference the source/parent calendar.

for libraries:
try CEWP first:

maybe check out the Page Viewer web part.  it's a standard sharepoint webpart.  see the section on Page Viewer here for basic steps for using it:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/using-web-parts-to-customize-personal-sites-HA001164813.aspx

also, try Data View web part.  i'm not sure how that works with document libraries, but since libraries are lists, i'm assuming it will work.

as for coding options, there are many.  if the above options don't fulfill your requirements, let me know.
