As March quickly approaches and the weather begins to turn, there are so many fun things to celebrate! For this week’s Nanny Tip of the Week, we will be talking about some great activities that are happening in the month of March that you can celebrate with your kiddos! Use these as a springboard for if you’re feeling stuck and don’t know what to do and have fun with them. Having a theme to work from not only helps you structure activities, but can also help inspire creativity. Check out some of the holiday ideas below and give a few of the activities related to them a try!
- Women’s History Month – If you ever wanted an excuse to educate on some important women of history, this month is the perfect time! Whether you use Amelia Earhart and create an airplane out of random objects, or celebrate Florence Nightingale and pretend you are nurses for the day, find someone really interesting and create an activity based on that. Again, this is a two-for-one type activity where you can bring in some history and an activity to back it up. Check out the www.history.com to get some more ideas on important women to base activities off of!
- St. Patrick’s Day – Obviously, this is one of the bigger holidays in March, so have some fun with it! Making your own pot of gold hide-and-seek activity, dressing up as leprechauns, or baking up some St. Patty’s Day desserts can be great places to start. Be creative!
- Dr. Seuss’ Birthday – March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, so why not celebrate it? It’s a perfect opportunity to crack open some of those classic books like “Green Eggs & Ham” or “Horton Hears a Who” or even “The Lorax”. And while you’re at it, why not make a cake for Dr. Seuss himself? Get in your daily reading and dress up like Thing 1 & Thing 2 so you can celebrate Dr. Seuss in style!
- First Day of Spring – A new season is a great reason to have fun with new activities. Now that the weather is starting to warm up and the flowers are in bloom, take some time to go pick flowers or create flowers of your own! This can be a great gift for mom or dad when they come home from work and to get in the season.
- Easter – For those that celebrate Easter, March 27th can certainly be something to look forward to. Decorating Easter eggs, going on Easter egg hunts and dressing up as the Easter bunny can be a good place to start. Again, use your creativity and find ways to make Easter unique and fun again!
Whichever activities you plan to do, find ways to make each of them unique and special for each of you. Making lasting memories is the best way to sustain relationships and to make the kids you care for feel special. Best of luck and we look forward to hearing how trying out these activities goes!
