It’s a new month, and we’re STILL mostly at home! As school assignments start to wind down, here are some ideas to add some fun, learning and variety to your days at home with the kids.
In light of current events, it seems fitting to spend some time this week talking about diversity in a kid-friendly way.
Here are some helpful links:
National Fresh Fruit & Vegetables Month
Celebrate by doing some activities focused on thse healthy foods. (Tip: Shady Brook Farm in Yardley opened their fields for pick-your-own strawberries yesterday! See their site for safety/health precautions and how to purchase entry tickets.)
Links for ideas:
June 3: National Running Day
Celebrate National Running Day by burning off some energy outside. Go for a run in your neighborhood, make an obstacle course in the backyard, or visit a local park.
June 5: National Doughnut Day
After a day dedicated to fresh fruits and vegetables, we’re here to remind you that today is National Doughnut Day! (Hey, it’s all about balance, right?!) Start the day off with a special surprise – doughnuts from your favorite local spot. And if you don’t already have a favorite of your own, take a look at our 2020 Happening List for suggestions.
To keep the theme going, do an activity like this Paper Plate Donut Craft
June 7: National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
On National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, you could try your hand at making the delicious treat at home using a recipe like the one linked here, OR you could get takeout from a Philly favorite spot. Read about some of those here.
And since we love a theme-inspired craft, check out this Puffy Paint Ice Cream Cone Craft made with glue, paint and shaving cream.
