Feburary Days of the Year to Celebrate
What if you took “National Pizza Day” and served pizza for breakfast and lunch and dinner? Maybe learn how to make your pizza crust? Let the kids pick their own crazy toppings. Make an absolute mess in the kitchen. Or buy pizza from 3 different places and have a contest with your kids to see which made the best pizza?
There are so many fun days to celebrate in February.
March DAYS OF THE YEAR TO CELEBRATE
Turn a boring Thursday into a Popcorn Lover’s Day this month that your children will never forget.

Who cares? The point is to make a day to remember with your kids.
