February Holidays

February is a great time to focus on KINDNESS. Here are some of the things that we do in our family to help keep the focus of Valentine’s Day on kindness and love.
It is Black History Month and Kids in Service would like to celebrate the people who have fought (and continue to fight) for civil rights in this country. Check out some of our favorite books and movies that will be great springboards for discussion with your children about these heroes from history and today.
Candlemas, February 2nd, is known by many names: Groundhog Day, Imblog and St. Bridgids Day.  Candlemas is a beautiful and long forgotten winter holiday that marks the half way point until spring. Check out our post with book recommendations and fun facts!
Here is a wonderful collection of LOVE and Valentine’s Day stories. This post has YouTube Read Aloud links so you can enjoy the books today with someone you love!
Chinese New Year usually begins in February (sometimes late January). Check out our post all about this 15 day festival with books, activities and information to share with your kids.
Presidents’ Day is in mid February and we have lots of fun and informative books to help you celebrate the day.  Many have YouTube Read Aloud links.
