If you have toys or other memorabilia from the film, feel free to make displays for the kids to wake up to.
National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
Have fun with chocolate ice cream on June 7th, or National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Set up a “sundae bar” to make chocolate ice cream sundaes at home, or take the kids to the local ice cream shop.
Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day
Create the ultimate teddy bear picnic on Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day, or July 10th. Set up a picnic in the backyard featuring plenty of yummy treats, and tell you children to invite their teddy bears. Use any small chairs you have to prop the bears on, and don’t forget to take pictures!
International Day of Friendship Day
Encourage your kiddies to spend time with their friends on International Day of Friendship Day (July 30th). Ask they what kind things they would like to do for their friends, or set up play dates. A small party is another idea. You can also ask your kids about any new friends they’ve made who they would like to invite over.
Discuss why positive thinking is so important on Positive Thinking Day, aka September 13th. Ask your children about positive things they’ve done lately and what they can do today to promote kindness and happiness.
