19 Fun Holidays to Celebrate in January

With the arrival of baby #5 just a little over a month a way and the New Year I've been trying to find some ways to simplify life and figure out a routine that works for us. One of the big thing we changed is our preschool plan.  We were apart of a little group where we rotated houses.  It was fun but it wasn't the right fit for us.  So that means we will be doing preschool at home and there will be more posts and plans for you!  I can't wait!

One thing I'm excited to start is this monthly calendar full of some fun and kind of quirky holidays.   I found some kid friendly ones that I think will be perfect to incorporate into our preschool plan or use it as a fun way to connect with your kids (I'm really excited that my older school aged kids can join in as well).  Simply download a copy of the calendar, print, and display.  You do not need to celebrate all of them (we probably won't) just pick and choose what works for you and your family.

My kids love something new and unexpected.  It doesn't need to be anything elaborate or take a lot of planning.  Many days just do exactly what it says like take a bubble bath, hug some one, or do a puzzle.  Here are a few ideas I came up with (click on the images to take you to the post):

New Years

Bird day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Popcorn day: make a bag of popcorn, snuggle up and watch a movie.  
OR try one of the delicious popcorn recipes on pinterest.  
Like this Unicorn popcorn

Appreciate a dragon day

or watch How to Train Your Dragon or my favorite Pete's Dragon!
I'll be posting ideas as I finalize my plans and also as we celebrate some of these holidays.  My hope is that this will be something fun for your family and a way to create some special memories.  I'd love to hear your ideas and see pictures of your celebrations!
