4 Silly Holidays to Share with Your Kids

Each day of the year it seems there is some sort of holiday but there are some especially fun holidays that can add something special to your week. Here are some of my favorite picks and ideas to go along with them.

National Tongue Twister Day

When: Nov. 8th 2017

This holiday seems to have a few dates ranging from November 8th –November 12th but either way it is a fun way to spend some time. All you have to do for this holiday is spout out some of your favorite tongue twisters. You and your kids can take turns, race or even make up your own.

Try these fun tongue twisters!

Ugly Sweater Day 

When: December 19, 2017

December has a lot of great silly Holidays but this one stood out to me as a great photo opportunity. It’s time to run out and raid the thrift store for the ugliest sweaters you can find and take a cute family photo. You can play dress up and take lots of fun photos with your camera, visit a photo booth or even prep for holiday cards! You could even take your sweaters out on the town! Keep tabs on all the funny looks you get.

National Squirrel Day 

When: January 21, 2018

It’s time to celebrate those acorn eating critters. Little ones will enjoy learning about these guys, their habitats and other fun facts. As a family you can make feeders to set out for them and other critters. You can write a story together or make up a silly song or dance.

Learn the sign language for squirrel!

Ground Hog Day 

When: February 2, 2018

This is a more familiar holiday but there are so many fun ways to celebrate it! You can read and learn about ground hogs or even more fun, you can make pop up puppets. Every year in Pennsylvania they have a great unveiling of Punxsutawney Phil at Gobblers Knob and they wait for him to see his shadow or not. You can watch the live broadcast and have your own watch party and make predictions. Later on in the day you can watch the movie Ground Hog Day directed by Harold Ramis in 1993.

These are just a few upcoming silly holidays. Stay tuned to iFamilyKC for more silly fun throughout the year!
