June Holidays

I will try to update this list with some fun activities as well. Feel free to click the links to find out more about the origins and meanings behind these special days. I plan to incorporate a few of these into our normal homeschool routine to add a little fun and excitement to our days. Have fun and maybe make up your own personal family holiday or tradition for the month!

This month is full of food days so as school finishes up this may be the perfect time to incorporate some cooking lessons into your day with your kids. Just be sure to keep it simple and have fun!

This month is also know as:

  • Aquarium Month
  • Candy Month
  • Dairy Month
  • Fight the Filthy Fly Month
  • National Gardening Week – First full week of month
  • National Accordion Awareness Month
  • National Adopt a Cat Month
  • National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month
  • Rose Month
  • Turkey Lovers Month

The weeks are known as:

  • Fishing Week, Week 1
  • Email Week, Week 2
  • Lightning Safety Week – Last full week of Month

(Links will be updated closer to the dates of each holiday.)
