Labor Day is an interesting holiday. While other similar holidays are set aside, rightfully so, to celebrate great leaders in Civil Rights, Presidents, and veterans of war, Labor Day is a holiday set aside to celebrate the every day worker.
As you go about your fun today, I encourage you to take a moment to share with your children what wonderful things important people in their lives do. Tell them about Dad's job, Gradparents' jobs, and other people important to your child. Tell your children that the holiday is to celebrate the American Workers and all that they have accomplished in the last year. It can be a simple way to get a bit of a history lesson worked in to your day of fun.
This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.
To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!
