Fun Things to Do in January

Special Days & Holidays to Enrich Your Program

Every month is full of days and weeks to observe and celebrate. Many of those days, like Halloween and Mother's Day, are quite well-known. But others are not so well known. Have you ever heard of Backwards Day? Or Look for Circles Day? Those are days that you and the children in your program can have fun with. Here is a list of well-known special days, but also days that are of special interest to kids for the Month of January.

Each link will also provide you with some crafts, activities or information about that specific special day. What days will you celebrate in your program?
