3. Spread Random Acts Of Kindness
Have you ever had someone ahead of you in line pay for your coffee? Or have you ever had someone unexpectedly give you flowers? Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day and it's a great excuse to do something nice for someone — whether it's your spouse or the cashier you probably won't ever see again. It's also a great day to show your children the power of small gestures, like donating their gently-used toys or drawing a picture for a neighbor. Here are seven simple ideas for spreading goodwill on Random Acts of Kindness Day! Friday, Feb. 17
4. Find Out Why The Constitution Rules
Children in grades K-2 are invited to an event called "Constitution Rules" with the National Archives. During the program students will explore the idea of different responsibilities in their community and analyze images that highlight the jobs of the three branches of government as outlined in the Constitution. Friday, Feb. 17
5. Celebrate Doc McStuffins
The Smithsonian's African American History and Culture Museum is celebrating Black characters this Black History Month. Today's program is inspired by Disney's Doc McStuffins. Children will also get to know a Black doctor. Doctor Maia McCuiston will teach children about her job as a pediatrician and what makes our bodies so special. The event will wrap up with a body-positivity activity led by a museum educator. Tuesday, Feb. 21
