Sometimes you just need a good excuse to have some fun! We’ve got you covered with fun national holidays that you and your family can celebrate all month long! Here are a few of our favorite (and silly!) national holidays happening in April:
A classic! Have some fun with some simple and harmless pranks! Wrap grapes up in candy wrappers, freeze a bowl of cereal with the spoon in it, or whip up some “brown e’s”. Click here for some more funny ideas.
If work is too far, walk to school or even just go for a long walk together!
Stick with the classic or mix it up! Use different cheeses like mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, or combine a few. Add in some other ingredients like bacon, sliced turkey, or even apple slices for a fun take on this delicious recipe.
Scrabble is a great way to practice spelling! Whip out the board and start making those tiles spell your favorite words.
Haiku poems are different than the rhyming poems most of us are used to. haikus only have 3 lines, the first and third with 5 syllables, the second with 7. A haiku is a descriptive poem and should be thought of as a small window looking into a larger space. This is a perfect way to practice for kids learning about syllables:
What Am I?
Mane, hair, and bridal
Running free through the pasture
Tall strong beauty
The answer? A horse!
A wonderful way to teach our kids about the importance of taking care of our planet! Click over to our post about the perfect ways to celebrate Earth Day.
Piggy backing on Earth Day, Arbor Day is all about celebrating trees. Consider planting a sapling in your yard, or starting one from a seed. Check out your local gardens to see if they have any planting activities, or organize your school to help plant a new tree on campus.
