March Activities for Kids

 The month of March is a fun time in the year. It represents the start of the Spring season, there are fun holidays in March and the month is Women's History month. I am ready for the warmer weather and being outdoors. I would like to share some activities that you can do from the comfort of your own home to make this month just as fun as previous months!

1. Prepare for your spring garden. - Flower and food gardening is a fun hobby so we will be making crafts to decorate the yard and the garden. We will also finally be able to order butterfly larvae to raise, observe, and release this spring! 

2. Have a craft day! - Pinterest is filled with craft inspiration and is usually my go to when looking for something specific. This cute Egg Carton Flower craft looks really simple to make. How pretty is this Spring Tree Broccoli painting?! I think we will follow these exact steps, paint on canvas, and hang it on the wall. A tree broccoli painting would be nice to make for each season too. Windsocks are always fun to make and these Cherry Blossom Windsocks are so pretty! We don't have many Cherry Blossom trees here but a nice spin on these would be a Dogwood Windsock! 

3. Read March themed books.

4. Make yummy, March themed snacks. - I'm actually not a big snacker and neither is my daughter. Shocker, yes I know! But themed snacks are fun to make and enjoy occasionally. This website has 35 St. Patrick's Day recipes to enjoy. Shamrock Bark, umm yes please! My go to recipe would probably this St. Patrick's Snack Board and I could definitely see myself eating these Healthy Snacks for Little Leprechauns

 
 

4. Learn about amazing women in history. - March is Women's History Month and we will be learning about some awesome women who made wonderful contributions to our world. Here are some coloring pages and printables to guide you.

Black History Month Activities for the Entire Family

 February is Black History Month and is a wonderful time to learn about the accomplishments and contributions that African Americans have made in history. Did you know that a black man invented the Super Soaker Water Gun?! How fun is that! I have shared below some activities that can be done as an entire family to celebrate and learn Black history.

1. Visit an African American History Museum - We are so lucky to live in a city rich with Black history and culture. We plan to visit a few of the museums located here in Atlanta, GA. The Apex Museum is rich with culture, I visited a few times as a child and plan to take my daughter. We will also be checking out the National Center for Civil and Human Rights museum for the first time. Try visiting any local history museums in your area. 

2. Watch documentaries about the lives of African Americans - There are tons of movies and documentaries about African Americans on Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu. Simply search "black history" and something will pop up. I would suggest The African Americans: Many Rivers To Cross.

      

3. Read black history books. 

4. Color black history worksheets - This website has fun worksheets to color and to learn about important people in history. This website also has some fun crafts for kids. 

February is a beautiful month. I am happy to re-learn along with my daughter about black people who shaped our history. How are you celebrating black history month? Let me know in the comments below! Until next time.

Valentine's Day Activities for Kids

With a great start to the new year  the excitement for Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. The holiday this year may look a little different for most. I'm doing my best to make this Valentine's Day as fun as possible while taking into consideration social distancing practices. I would like to share various activities that you can do from the comfort of your own home. Check them out below.

1. Make Valentine crafts at home!  - There are so many crafts that you can make at home with kids. Pinterest is always my go to for craft ideas. I'm ordering heart craft sets and we plan to make a few nature themed Valentine crafts. This website gives instructions on how to make nature heart wands! I thought a heart bird feeder would be fun to make as well! 

2. Mail Valentine cards to family and friends. - Either handmade or store bought, would be the perfect way to show people you care. 

3. Read Valentine or love themed books. - Here are a few chapter books that we plan to read for Valentine's Day. I also have book suggestions for younger readers here

4. Make Valentine treats. - I'm not the best cook but I have found some beautiful recipes that I would like to attempt to make to bring on the Valentine cheer! These chocolate covered pretzels look so yummy and simple to make. My daughter suggested that we try making Valentine's Day Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn.  Lastly, I am obsessed with peppermint bark, so I would like to try making Valentine's Day Bark

These activities would be fun for anyone having a socially distanced Valentine's Day. A virtual meetup with friends wile doing some of the crafts or cooking would make Valentine's extra fun.  I am thrilled to do these activities this Valentine's Day with my little lady. Do you have any Valentine plans? Let me know in the comments! Until next time.
