International Day of Women and Girls in Science
An especially important holiday to celebrate for daughters, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science honors the contributions women have made to science and encourages girls to consider becoming scientists themselves! Help pass the message along by going to museums or interactive science centers, taking part in some online activities, or teaching your kids about some of the great things women have done in science!
Groundhog Day can be one of the most fun holidays to celebrate with your kids! You can have a great time no matter if your town has a nearby location that is celebrating the holiday or you’re listening in to the festivities happening at Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania! Find out from Punxsutawney Phil himself if we’re going to have a long winter or early spring, and reenact it with some homemade crafts!
Can’t forget Valentine’s Day! While they might be too young to celebrate with the class, it’s never too early to show that love isn’t just for significant others! Have a Valentine’s Day celebration with your kids by celebrating your love for them. Consider making some homemade cards with them to give to each other, or have some fun baking heart-shaped cookies!
Black History Month
While not a specific day, Black History Month in the US and Canada is a great celebration to commemorate with your kids. At whatever age level is appropriate for your kids, talk with them about what the Civil Rights Movement means and about the heroes who fought for equality. Consider taking them to a museum exhibit (especially if there is one commemorating Black History Month) or teach them about how to deal with racial prejudices.
