We have enjoyed following some of the lists of “National Days” over the years. Like National Puzzle Day and National Blueberry Pancake Day. It’s a simple and inexpensive way to add some fun to your week. You can easily make it educational too, for instance on National Poem day, discover a new poet, or write a poem.
We thought it would be fun to come up with our own list of days that relate more specifically to family, faith and home. Each Friday we will post the list for the following week. You can pick a day to recognize and turn it into a homeschooling project or just a family activity, or be real adventurous and do them all. After you observe a day, if you would like, come back and tell us what you did in the comments or share it on Facebook. You can also email pictures and we will post them in the next Friday’s post.*
