Monday Pep Talk No. 26
3 fun things to do this week
There is absolutely no better way to celebrate Curling Is Cool Day (on Tuesday) than by listening to the great David Attenborough narrate a curling match, documentary-style. (Seriously, though, why do we not have David Attenborough narrating all sporting events?)
There are lots of activities and reading ideas to choose from in Scholastic’s Myths, Folktales, and Fairy Tales workshop, which means there are lots of fun options for celebrating Tell a Fairy Tale Day on Friday.
Put your kitchen science skills to work making a batch of homemade yogurt together.
3 ideas for this week’s dinners
Put a twist on the breakfast-for-dinner standby by serving huevos rancheros.
Nothing’s better than slow-cooker versions of family favorites, like this butter chicken. Serve with a big bowl of basmati rice.
Comfort food at its best: sweet potatoes with porcini gravy. (Bonus: Monday is Cook a Sweet Potato Day, so you’ve got that covered.)
one great readaloud
Sometimes in the middle of winter, you just want a readaloud that will make everyone laugh out loud. Put The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher on your library list, and you won’t be disappointed.
one thought to ponder
“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.”
