Friday Five: 5 Things to do in March

Since today is the 1st day of March I thought it would be fun to 5 things to do this month. Now I know is St. Patrick's Day & Easter are this month. WOW. That alone makes it a party, but did you know there are many, many cool things about the month of March. Here are 5 more things to Do & Celebrate this March.

Friday Five: 5 Things to Do & Celebrate This March! 

1.   March 2nd - It is Dr. Seuss Birthday! Celebrate this literary genius. 
          We had a party for Dr. Seuss last year & it was a blast. Join in the fun this year. Here are some things you can do:

Dr. Seuss
  • Read a little bio about the great Theodore Seuss Giesel here 
  • Eat Green Eggs & Ham for Breakfast
  • Read, Read, Read all of Dr. Seuss wonderful books
  •  Watch a Dr. Seuss Movie. Like maybe this one:
  • I think making these: Rainbow Pinwheel cookies, would fit Dr. Seuss perfectly.
  Click here for the recipe & instructions from Sounders Cookery. 

2. March 14. Albert Eisenstein Birthday.  You can celebrate this literal Genius as well.

        I would also like to point out that it is the day of PI.  You know PI. 3.14 (the date) is also the math number for PI. Sorry moving on. So here are some fun things you could do to celebrate Albert Einstein.    

  •  Learn all you can in this small bio on Albert Einstein
  • Learn some German Words
  • Eat German Food
  • One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is."If you want your child to be intelligent read him fairy tales. If you want your child to be even more intelligent read him more fairy tales."
  • Read your child fairy tales
  • Do science projects with your kids:
  • End the day on a light note & watch this.

    It is quite cute!

3.   March 15, is  Incredible Kid Day
           Whether this is an official holiday or not. Your kids truly are incredible. Take a day & recognize each of them for the person they are.

  •  Say yes to them as much as you can on this day.
  • Write them a note, telling them why you think they are an Incredible Kid.
  • Take time to be a Deliberate mother this day. Put down your techno gadgets & give them your full attention.
  • Make a favorite meal for them.
  • Hug them & kiss them & tell them you love them.

4. March 19, is National Agriculture Day.
 Now since Ag is our livelihood & lifestyle.  I definitely think this is one worth celebrating. On this day you could:

  • Spend a little time to better understand Agriculture.
  • Learn about how food is produced & distributed.
  • Visit a local Ag business, a farm, a ranch, ect.
  • Eat well today. As you do, think about all that goes into bringing the food you eat to your table.
  • Read some book about Ag.
  • Kansas Farm Bureau has these whole series. Check them out. 
  • Watch this once again, & then again.

5.  Celebrate the 1st day of Spring on March 20th.

So there you have it. 5 More things to do & celebrate this wonderful March. I can't wait to see what you do!
