February 1: Hobby Month

image from

Hobby Fair


  • tri-fold boards
  • posterboard
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • markers
  • crayons
  • construction paper
  • materials needed by individual children


  1. Consider having a “Hobby Fair” similar to Science Fairs where children have boards to showcase their hobbies instead of science projects.
  2. Let each child choose a hobby he/she wishes to showcase.
  3. If budget, time, and space allow, let children use the large tri-fold boards used in science fairs. If that isn’t feasible, let children make posters.
  4. Have a “Hobby Night” where families can be invited to see what the children chose to showcase.
  5. You could also make a small-scale version of this by putting up a bulletin board with photos of children involved in their hobbies.

Check out the full February calendar. It includes floating holidays, specialty weeks, and specialty months.
