Family Literacy Day 2013


On Sunday February 27, Canada will celebrate Family Literacy Day. The goal of this special day is to bring awareness to the importance of reading and engaging in literacy based activities as a family. 
It doesn't take a lot to do this - when you think about it, there are easy things to do all around you! This year's theme is 15 Minutes of Fun. Here are some 15 minute long activities that you can try on Sunday, and every day!


  1. Create your own comic strip about your family.
  2. Invent two new endings to your favourite book.
  3. Make up a new recipe together and post it online.
  4. Tell knock-knock jokes together while doing the dishes.
  5. Sing five songs really, really loud!
  6. Invent a new game while playing at the park.
  7. Read a story to your pet (or favourite toy).
  8. Make a paper fortune teller with eight fortunes.
  9. Write a silly poem and tell it to your family at dinner.
  10. Log on to your favourite word game - can you beat your best score?
  11. Create your family tree.
  12. Play rhyming "I Spy" - "I spy something that rhymes with..."
  13. Play a board game together.
  14. Text your friend and tell them about your holiday.
  15. Find 15 things that begin with the letter "S".             (source)
