SEPTEMBER 22 – Elephant appreciation day, Hobbit Day, Oktoberfest begins
Today marks the birthday of hobbits, Bildo and Frodo Baggins. Try these fun Hobbit party games: Pass the Parcel, Secret Scavenger Hunt and Biggest Birthday Greeting.
Appreciate an elephant today! Whether African or Indian, elephants are one of the biggest and most benevolent creatures on our planet. Just like humans, elephants, laugh, cry, play, and grieve. Elephant families are ruled by a matriarch, and usually consist of her female offspring and their young. An elephant is pregnant for eighteen to twenty-two months, the longest for any animal. The oldest elephant lived to be 82 years old!
However, these majestic animals are in danger, because of poaching and loss of habitat.. “An elephant never forgets,” and we as humans must not forget to respect these magnificent creatures. On this day of appreciating elephants, let’s try to do our share.
Children love books about elephants, so take some special time to read some all time favorites:
The Story of Babar
Elmer (Elmer Books)
Walt Disney's Dumbo (Disney Wonderful World of Reading)
Elephants: A Book for Children
Plan a fantastic Octoberfest party just for kids complete with Apple Cider, soft pretzels, crafts and the Chicken Dance Song.
