Monthly Calendar for families

    Aloha all!

    I am curious about those "National days" that pop up. For instance, National Dinosaur day or National Pie day. We put a monthly calendar out for our families and we have a lot of blank days. Our previous Director used to fill them in and parents loved it! It gave us something to bond with, like National Hat day. We all wore our favorite hat. Some were ball caps, some were beanies, some were sun hats and I wore a Wyle E.Coyote beanie.
    I was curious if anyone knew of the actual website to look up these kid appropriate days?
    Oh I live on Maui and yes it is beautiful, but no we don't like in grass huts and I cannot speak Hawaiian.

    Mahalo for your kokua.

    This is the site I use!  
    When we had to go to all-online programming last year one of the "extra shows" we did started because we found out May was the Month of the Asparagus! was crazy!  Check out our "Asparagus Tips"  they were really popular on Facebook, not so much on our YouTube!  But I swear people watched on Facebook!
