Family traditions are very important to me. I used to work really hard to create huge, elaborate traditions especially for holidays. Then it dawned on me that traditions are often small and can happen any day for any reason. So when I was asked to check out the new Every Day is a Big Day program, I knew it was going to be a great fit for our family. The idea of the program is to “Make Every Day a Big Day” when you and your family take on a series of missions to grow, learn and give back to others!
To start, simply go the Every Day is a Big Day website and register your family. When your family completes a Mini™ Mission, you can earn free Scholastic books for and a chance to win prizes for your school and community. Each month, log in and complete a new Mini™Mission to earn 2 free Scholastic books for your family. In addition, when your family completes a Mini™ Mission, you are also entered into a sweepstakes for 131 prizes that will be awarded to schools and communities each month. You can also download free monthly stories chronicling Mini’s™ adventures against the evil Skipper.
Each month has it’s own unique mission:
- August- Nutrition Tradition
- September- Outdoor Explorer
- October- Creative Moments
- November – Conversation bites
- December – Give and Get back
My family just completed August’s Nutrition Tradition mini-mission. Our mission was to eat a healthy breakfast together for 5 days in a row. I’m happy to say that despite a few sleepy heads – we did it! I find that the trick to making breakfast work is to vary what we have. Some days we have a more elaborate breakfast like a German Oven Pancake. Another morning we’ll just have bagels and fruit. Breakfast cookies are always a favorite with the kids – don’t tell them they aren’t really cookies! Of course, coffee is a must for those of us over 5 feet tall!
After we finished our mini-mission, I uploaded our activities to the website. We got our free book download and 2 brand new Scholastic books are on their way to our home! I’m looking forward to some outdoor adventures on Mt. Charleston for September!
