Looking for something creative, different, and fun to do with the family this month? Want to spend more time together? Check out our selected list of May holidays and observances for your family to celebrate, explore, and enjoy…together!

Turning these observances into great family time is easy. On days that celebrate foods, incorporate them into your family meal, show the kids how it’s made, or research why that date was selected. On dates with activities, incorporate them into your daily regimen. On all other days have a discussion, do some research, discover something new about the day. Make a game of it, get the whole family involved, and have some fun.
