April is just around the corner, and that means... hippity hoppity Easter's on it's way! Here are a few of my favorite kid's Easter craft ideas from around the web. Wouldn't it be so fun to sit down with your little kiddles and whip up something cute?
National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day is celebrated every year on March 24th. Chocolate covered raisins are a fairly "good for you" snack. Raisins are a good source of fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, and certain B vitamins. They are also low in fat and cholesterol and contain antioxidants. If you were to eat raisins covered in dark chocolate they'd be even better for you since research has found that eating a small amount of dark chocolate each day is good for your heart.
Just for fun, why don't we watch a gecko lizard licking a chocolate covered raisin?
Today is the first day of Act Happy Week which is observed the week beginning with the third Monday in March. During Act Happy Week we are challenged to consciously put on the face of happiness even if we may not be feeling too happy, and in doing so we will likely become more happy.
What makes you happy? Here are a few things that made me happy when I was a kid:
Playing hide and seek with my friends.
Swinging as high as my legs could pump me.
Getting tickled by my dad.
So what about you? My challenge for you this week is to write down 3 things every day that make you happy. Will you do it? I hope so.
Today is Let's Laugh Day. Did you know that along with being just plain old fun, laughing is also good for you? Laughing reduces stress, strengthens your heart, is good for your lungs, and improves your immune system.
Here are a few fun websites with jokes and riddles that you might like to share with your family and friends.
Hi, My name is Lisa. I am a mother of 7 wonderful sons, and a "tickled pink to be" grandmother of 6 delightful grandchildren. I know besides pleasing their parents in every way and being great students in school, kids just wanna have fun! But I'm pretty willing to bet most kids don't know that along with the big holidays like Halloween and Christmas, there are exciting things to celebrate every day of the year! Here at Kids Love Holidays, we'll make discoveries of all that we've been missing. So let's have some fun!
