Children love traditions. In fact, some experts believe that traditions are what hold a family together. One fun tradition you might begin at your house is to celebrate the first day of each new month. Get your child involved in planning a special dinner that you serve only on this day. (Have fun—wear party hats and serve cake!)
Here’s a fun activity that will help your child learn more about the moon. Watch the moon together every evening this month. Help your child create a picture chart of how the moon changes during the month. Keep track of when it rises. For how many days does the moon get bigger? Smaller? How many days does it remain full?
