SEPTEMBER 11 – Patriot day, Make your own bed day, National lace-making day
Making their own beds is a great “first chore” for kids. Not only will it teach them about responsibility, but they’ll be proud of themselves when they’ve completed the task. Remember: Even though the bed will have plenty of lumps, it’s the effort that counts! Be sure to praise your child with a great, big, “GOOD JOB”! (And resist the urge to re-make the bed so that it looks perfect.)
This year marks the 11th anniversary since the attacks on the New York World Trade Center occurred. Patriot Day occurs on September 11 of each year, designated in memory of the 2,993 killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Most Americans refer to the day as "Nine-Eleven (9/11)," "September Eleventh," or some variation. Many towns hold local memorials. Or, just stop for your own private moment.
It's lace making day. Tatting and bobbin lace are pretty intricate. But lanyard laces are lots of fun! The box stitch is a good one to start with.
