Father's Day Ideas

4226629340_b93a045349_nFather’s Day is celebrated each year in the U.S. on the third Sunday in June. This year that is June 15.

It would be a nice gesture to do something for your host dad. You could help the children make a surprise for her or give him a card yourself.  Don’t forget to send a special message to your own father, back home.

Celebrate Grandparents Day


Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day. This year that will be September 11.  This is not a widely celebrated holiday, but most grandparents would still appreciate being remembered and would particularly enjoy a homemade gift or card.  Work with your children to create a simple but special surprise.  Use a photo of the child or the child and the grandparent to make it even more special.
