June Family Holidays: 30 Days of Celebrations

It is so easy to be together as a family in June. We can usually linger on our deck without being too cold or too bug bitten. Schoolwork is done and we can concentrate on play, outdoor food and good books. Still, it is fun to have a reason to celebrate, so we’ve come up with June Family Holidays for each day of of the month. Don’t feel like you need to commit to 30 days of celebrations. Pick your favorites. Move them to the closest weekend if you want, add or subtract ideas to fit your own family. However you use this list, we hope you are inspired to add some fun family memories!

Note: We’ve tried to pick books you can find on Kindle or can watch on YouTube, but many of these books are also shelf-worthy choices.
