Time has gotten away from me. I have no other excuse for not keeping up with the blog. Summers are busy days for playing with my boys. Sometimes, instead of me wearing them out, they wear me out so much, that their nap time becomes mine as well. I can’t complain about that. I do love my naps and that I am able to spend my days at home with them. I know I am lucky. Things do tend to get in the way of my working on my various projects, though. I will attempt to do better.
I think I have found the perfect way to do so. One of my fellow Multicultural Kid Blogs Contributors from Kid World Citizen has created the coolest Diversity Calendar out there (in my opinion) and I can’t wait to start celebrating some holidays that are new to me, but important around the world. Here is the description from their website.
Our Diversity Calendar is a month-by-month, thorough collection of holidays around the world! For the past three years, we have interviewed religious leaders from all major religions, and heavily researched our calendar to assure that the most important holidays have been included (and are happy to include any additional festivals or holidays our readers add in the comments!). This fabulous diversity calendar includes 285 special days including:
•multicultural and ethnic festivals
•religious holy days from all major religions
•environmental days to celebrate and honor our planet
•United Nations International Days such as “Global Youth Service Day“
•fun holidays that celebrate friendship, empathy, and kindness.
Even though it is probably intended more for teachers and homeschoolers, I know that my boys and I can come up with some fun things to do with it. From World Friendship Day to International Talk Like A Pirate Day and so many animal appreciation days, I think this will be a fun project! I’m excited to show them how beautiful the world is in all of it’s celebrations. Want to do it with me? I’d love to find ideas on how to celebrate some of these with you!
