Looking to add a little fun to your schedule?  Here is a list of just a few April holidays and fun days to celebrate.

April Fun Days

April Holidays and Fun Days

April 2 – Children’s Book Day

  • What is your child’s favorite book?
  • Make a trip to the library and stock up on some books.
  • Spend more time reading today!

April 10 – Golfer’s Day
This is definitely an easy day for my boys to celebrate, but perhaps you do not have avid golf fans in your home. Try these ideas:

  • Play a game of mini putt putt around the living room.
  • Look at pictures of Scottish golf courses (much different than American manicured courses).
  • Discover which King outlawed golf in the sixteen hundreds.

April 13 – Scrabble Day
If you like the traditional game, Scrabble Slam cards, or another version, play Scrabble in place of language arts today.

April 15 – Tax Day, Titanic Remembered

  • Are you teaching your children about work and being good stewards of their money?  If you have older children consider Economics for Everybody, a dvd curriculum taught by R.C. Sproul Jr.
  • Did you know the Titanic was struck before midnight on April 14th, but did not sink until 2:00 am on the 15th?  Teach your students about icebergs with this iceberg experiment.

April 22 – Earth Day
You’ll be sure to find something wonderful to create with 20 Earth Day Crafts & Activities from No Time For Flash Cards.

April 26 – Arbor Day
Tremendous Trees by Amanda Bennett is a great week-long unit study for children ages 1st – 4th grade.

April Is:

  • Autism Awareness Month
  • Keep America Beautiful Month
  • National Garden Month
  • National Poetry Month

Plan ahead to add a little fun to your April school days!
