Family Fun Inspiration for February 2019

No comments

It’s February and we are ready. Winter’s marching on. There’s a small threat of snow but it’s mostly gray this time of year. We’re continuing on with our Oak Meadow curriculum plus our other muses: pink hearts for Valentine’s Day, red for Lunar New Year, Black History Month, the season, nature, and what the kids are interested in. February’s quite the long bucket list also but I love having it for inspiration. I hope it inspires you as well.

Note: my hope is to update this bucket list as we go along. I’ll be adding in links to other posts as I create them.

For fans of PBS KIDS, an all-new Pinkalicious & Peterrific Valentine’s special premieres February 11 everywhere we watch PBS KIDS. The kids love this show for many reasons and we’ll be watching for it in the PBS KIDS video app.
