Children’s Poetry Day


Did you know that March 21st is Children’s Poetry Day?

Or that the month of March is…

  • Womens History Month
  • Youth Art Month
  • American Red Cross Month
  • Music in our Schools Month
  • National Craft Month and
  • National Noodle Month?

True story. Why not use one of those as an excuse to do something fun with your child to “celebrate”?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Write a poem with your child with as many words as you can find that rhyme with “March” (making up your own words is completely acceptable)
  • Teach your child about a female family member they don’t know much about or better yet, take them to visit an elderly female to hear about her history
  • Create a work of art out of Red Cross logos…
  • Let your child make a musical instrument out of non-musical instrument materials (pots and pans are my 1-year-old’s favorite)
  • Hold a family Iron Chef competition with prizes for “Best Tasting” and “Most Unique Ingredients” pasta dishes

Instant and *FREE* family fun.


Does your child have a favorite poet (or author) or a favorite poem?
