Don't feel sad putting away for Halloween Costumes for another year. There's plenty of amazing things to celebrate with your children during the month of November besides Turkey Day! See what our celebration calendar can bring to your family and friends.
November 2nd: Cookie Monster Day
It's Cookie Monster's birthday! That's right; the beloved blue treat eater from Sesame Street is celebrating, and so can you! Known best for his kooky song, "C is for Cookie," Cookie Monster promotes eating all kinds of things, not just cookies. But it wouldn't hurt to bake some cookies or cupcakes with your little girl and watch some of your favorite episodes of the show.
November 7th: Little League Girls Day
Little League is the world's largest organized youth sports program, being played in over 80 countries. And with Little League softball founded in 1974, you know that includes millions of girls ages 4-16! Celebrate by teaching your little learner about the sport or head out to the nearest park and play a game with family and friends.
November 7th-13th: Dear Santa Letter Week
Your merry munchkin is going to love writing a letter to Santa. From November 7th through the 13th, sit down with your kids to write and send a letter directly to the North Pole with the help of usps.com, and they'll help bring a response message from Mr. Claus himself! Encourage reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills with Christmas fun!
November 9th: National Young Readers Day
Reading is not just fundamental; it's fun! This day honors those youngest readers out there. Head to your local library or bookstore and set some time aside to read with your child for 30 minutes. Either with individual books or reading together, discuss what's happening and what you love about them.
November 11th: Veterans Day
Did you know that around 1.6 million veterans are women? Honor all those who served in the United States Armed Forces today with parades, events, and thank a veteran or soldier when you see them. If you have U.S. Armed Forces in your family, have your tiny tots write a letter to thank them for their service.
November 15th: America Recycles Day
Recognize the importance of recycling and how proper reduction, reuse, and recycling habits can significantly impact our environment. And there are easy ways to teach these habits to your little ones. Thanks to the Quest for Less: Activities and Resources for Teaching K-8 via epa.com, you too can guide children to a healthier world.
November 20th: Family Volunteer Day
Help make a difference during this global day of service through the power of families coming together. Find local opportunities to give back in your own special way with non-profits, small businesses, schools, and more.
November 25th: Thanksgiving
Turkey isn't the only reason for the season! Thanksgiving goes beyond togetherness and delicious dinners. It's also a time to count blessings and say thanks for a bountiful harvest time.
