National Be Someone Day

National Be Someone Day

On July 21st, National Be Someone Day challenges each of us to take ten seconds to make a difference in a child’s life.

In today’s world we can’t do everything, but we can do something. What can you do in 10 seconds? We can change gears and be intentional. One small thing can leave a huge imprint and impact.

So, where do you start?

  • Tell a bad joke. Tell a good joke. Need a way to make a little one laugh? Here is a great list!
  • Gardening is a great tool to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature. Pick a special plant for you and your little one to garden. Here is a gardening list of 10 plants for children starting from an early age.

  • Say “Hello” in a different language. Using a word or two in a different language can teach your kids to be open to other cultures, and probably get a few smiles in return.
  • Create a special handshake!
  • Go outside and find an animal in the clouds. This encourages creativity, can provide a moment of calm, and connects your children with the natural world.

Take a 10-second dance break. Here are a few of our favorite suggestions:

  • A-Moose-Ta-Cha:
    Time to get silly and move every part of your body with A-Moose-Ta-Cha!

  • Guacamole

  • Hit The Ball Y’all:
    Backhand, forehand…SMASH! Learn some tennis moves with Blazer Fresh.
