Hooray for National Mustard Day!

August 5, 2008 · Filed Under Holidays · Comment 

August 5 is National Mustard Day, and what a great day for cooking with the kids.  Check your favorite cookbooks or internet recipe sites and find a few mustard-related recipes, like potato salad, baked beans, or honey-mustard sauce.  Head off to the kitchen and let the kids loose.  While they’re having fun, they will be learning about sequencing, following directions, reading comprehension, measurement, time management and more. 

And don’t forget that mustard is also a color.  Can you come up with a yellow art project to round out your day?  Try this with young children: get a collection of yellow paint sample sheets from your local hardware store.  Cut the yellows apart and then challenge your young child to arrange them in order of shade.  You can make this as easy or as tough as you like-just change the number of shades you use and how closely they resemble each other.

Finally, take some time to learn about mustard itself.  Where does it come from?  What is its history?  What is it used for?  Who makes it?  Do all of the plants with the name ‘mustard’ actually have anything to do with the condiment?  Why do they have the names they do?

Have fun!

Celebrate July 1!

Looking for a reason to celebrate today?  It’s more than just frivolity; it’s EDUCATION!  You can use international, little-known, and absolutely bizarre holidays to teach all sorts of things. 

And today is a great day to start-it’s Second Half of the Year Day!  Try these activities to have fun and promote learning:  Put the year in perspective.  Write a summary of what you’ve been doing the past six months.  What’s been good and what’s been not-so-good?  How are you doing on those New Year’s Resolutions?  Maybe it’s time for some renewed vigor in that direction, or even a time to make a few new mid-year resolutions.

It’s also Canada Day.  Do a little research to find out what our neighbors to the north are celebrating today.  How is the holiday celebrated?  Uncover facts and info about Canada.

Try this one for some cool fun today: July 1 is Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day.  What unique and delightful flavor can your child come up with?  You can actually try this one out, or try for the most bizarre suggestion on paper.  Turn it into an experiment, a survey (with graphing), or a writing exercise.

And it’s Build a Scarecrow Day.  Try it out, either by building a real scarecrow with old clothes, broomsticks and straw, or with an art project.  How about a Scarecrow Contest?

Finally, July 1st is Zip Code Day.  What can you do with Zip Codes?  Try checking your junk mail and making math problems out of them.  Which are larger or smaller and by how much?  How many pieces of mail did you get from the same Zip Code?  If you multiply that Zip code by the number of pieces of mail that you got containing it, what’s the answer?  Try this one, too: tell or write a story where the Zip code is actually a secret code for something besides moving mail efficiently.  What’s the code for and who is using it?  What happens?

Whatever you choose to do, have a wonderful July 1.  And don’t forget to visit http://sandyfleming.info again for more holiday fun!
