Teddy Bear Day - September 9th

A Teddy Bear Day celebration can be very meaningful and teach your child a lesson in charity. Have each child bring a new teddy bear to the celebration. After everyone has arrived, tell them that the bears are going to be given to children that really need a new friend. Then take the kids to the hospital pediatric ward. The staff may or may not let you give the bears directly to the sick children, but the point will be made to the children. After you are done at the hospital, take all the kids out for ice cream. A beautiful way to celebrate Teddy Bear Day.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day - September 19th

Pirate parties are always a huge hit with kids. Have them dress up as pirates and have contests as to who can talk like a pirate the best. Foam sword fights, singing and drinking (root) beer will make for a memorable Talk Like a Pirate Day Party.
