Leap Day Ideas

The Homeschool Classroom has some fun ideas of things to do to make Leap Day special.

Here are four that I really liked.  I think we'll work 2 or 3 of them into our day tomorrow.

20. Bake together. Even better – take some of your tasty creations to family, friends, or neighbors (especially elderly neighbors that probably don’t do much baking for themselves anymore).

21. Make a trail mix that is made up of 29 pieces of various items like Cheerios, raisins, and so on. (Unless you’re adding in lots and lots of different ingredients, these will likely be individual snack mixes. So, let everyone make their own special mixes.)

22. Take guesses on what item in your house is closest to 29 inches. The one who guesses correctly can be the Leap Day King or Queen.

23. Have your children write a letter (or dictate it for them) to themselves to be opened on Leap Day 2016. Who do they think they’ll be? What are their hopes and goals? (Consider writing one of these to yourself as well.) Consider adding in a photograph of the child from February 29, 2012.
