I know that this close to the end of our homeschooling year and having a bit more to go to be finished, I won’t be adding any extra learning days to our calendar. However, I suppose I’m a creature of habit, for once again I’m searching the activity calendars. There are several famous people’s birthdays and major event anniversaries coming in May that won’t be studied in our homeschool, but I thought that there might be days that we can still recognize just for fun.
After reviewing these calendars I have learned that May 6 is “No Diet Day”, but maybe that should be the theme of the entire month. My pancreas is going into insulin producing overload just reading through some of May’s special days.
1 – Parfait Day
2 – Truffels Day
11 – Eat What You Want Day
12 – Nutty Fudge Day
15 – Chocolate Chip Day
19 – Devil’s Food Cake Day
20 – Strawberry Shortcake Day
31 – Macaroon Day
Here are my favorite calendars with educational links in case you have room on your planner to include some special learning days.

Hoping you have a sweet May,
I feel you on the insulin overload…Thanks for sharing we may try to incorporate some of these!
You’re welcome Candice. I think I must have been needing some dessert because usually I skip over those types of days as I make our homeschooling calendar.
I knew I’ve always liked May!
Me too, but thought it was because of Mother’s Day and 2 birthdays! Now I’ve got even more reasons!
