September 26: Hold a pancake day for family members.

image from

If your program’s guidelines allow for cooking in your program, today is an excellent day for combining three different holidays into one event. Not only is today Pancake Day, but it is also Ancestor Appreciation Day and Food-Service Employees Day. Why not hold a pancake day where the kids serve as the food-service employees and serve family members? Depending on the ages of children, they may or may not be able to help actually cook, but consider having kids serve as hosts and hostesses as well as waiters and waitresses.

Check out the full September calendar to see the month at a glance as well as floating holidays, specialty weeks, and themes for the month.
