Cook and Craft on World Friendship Day

friendship day

July 30th marks World Friendship Day. Celebrate with a few friend-filled activities. This is the perfect opportunity for your child to get social, spend time with her pals and enjoy a few entertaining activities. After inviting her classmates, neighbors or other friends over, try out these kid-friendly ideas!

Friendship Meal

Prep a meal that the kids can help to whip up. Ask each child what their favorite foods are. Then see if they can name which foods the other one likes. Pick a food that both friends enjoy, and then serve that up for a Friendship Day breakfast, lunch or dinner. Younger children can measure and mix ingredients, while tweens/teens can do more of the cooking. Always supervise your child at all times when prepping and cooking in the kitchen.

Friendship Bracelets

You might remember making these little crafty creations when you were a child. The kids can use yarn or embroidery floss to weave bracelets for each other, or they can try another technique. Younger kids who are struggling with the weaving can string beads on yarn, while older kids can use multiple colors of string, floss or flexible plastic to create rainbow-hued jewelry.

Friendship Necklaces

The kids can create their own ‘lockets’ using ribbon, cardboard and photos. Each child can draw a shape, such as a circle or a heart, onto cardboard. Cut out the cardboard and use a hole punch to make a hole at the top. Thread a piece of yarn through the hole and tie it together. Now it’s time to add the pictures. The kids can exchange small-sized photos, cut them to match the cardboard and glue them on.
