February is full of reasons to celebrate. And this is good, since for many of us, February is the last month of varying degrees of winter. After the colder weather, we can look forward to spring, but for February, it’s STILL winter. So, as we wait for longer daylight and warmer days, let’s appreciate all that February has to offer. Let’s create some February fun with Signing Time!
February is of course known for Valentine’s Day. But it’s full of other notable days as well. February is Black History Month, which allows for tons of learning for our kids. This month holds the annual celebration of Presidents Day, another great learning opportunity. And did you know that the week after Valentine’s Day, there is Love Your Pet Day? February is also “Celebration of Chocolate Month” and “Declutter for a Cause Month.”
With all of these holidays, plus so many more, we can keep our kids learning and having fun throughout the month of February. So join us to create some February fun!
