Looking for family fun this week? We have ideas for you! Here are five fun things to do based around holidays, birthdays, and events happening July 6-13:

1. Sign up for Macaroni KID!

It's National Macaroni Day! At Macaroni KID we are obviously quite fond of this tasty holiday. We think it's a great day to not only make macaroni & cheese for dinner, but to check out your local Macaroni KID edition. If your edition doesn't have a Macaroni KID publisher, consider joining our team! Find out more about joining our team now! July 7

2. Make your own freezer pops

Nothing is better than a freezer pop on a hot summer day. These sweet treats are easy to make at home, and kids will love trying out different combinations! We have been loving these two-ingredient watermelon pops and are making more for National Freezer Pop Day! July 8

3. Celebrate Nikola Tesla's birthday

Nikola Tesla has had a huge impact on all of our lives. He is credited with how we use electricity today. Without him, we would not have the radio, AC electricity, power grids, television, X-rays, radar, and many other inventions we use today. Want to learn more? We love The Tesla Files, a series from the History Channel. July 10

Here's one episode of the Tesla Files:

4. Go on a picnic ... and bring a teddy bear!

Based on the early 1900s children’s song “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic," this "holiday" is a fun celebration of our childhood stuffed toys. Kids will love the chance to round up a few of their favorite stuffed friends to bring on a Teddy Bear Picnic. Theme your special day out by packing peanut butter and honey sandwiches and bringing the classic book "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" to read to your kids at the picnic. After, play your own version of going on a bear hunt! July 10

5. Learn about Malala

In 2012, Malala Yousafzai was attacked by Taliban gunmen and shot in the head and the neck. Nine months after being shot, Malala delivered a remarkable speech at UN headquarters highlighting the need for worldwide access to women’s education. At just 17 she received the Nobel Peace Prize, the youngest recipient in history. This week marks Malala Day, a great time to read her remarkable story in her memoir, "I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban," as a family to learn more about this remarkable woman.
