Can you imagine having the same job for 60 years? The Queen of England knows exactly how that feels as she celebrates 60 years as Monarch. Not only do my friends in England get a long weekend & extra time off from work (so jealous!) but there are many celebrations taking place as well. Even if you're not in England, there are some fun ways to get your kids involved in the celebration.
1) Send a Message to the Queen. Let your child type it out themselves, or let your preschoolers dictate their message to you and watch you send it to the Queen. Click here to email the Queen of England.
2) Try a new British recipe with your kids like this recipe for Scotch Eggs from the upcoming Disney Movie Brave which will be in theatres on June 22nd. Click here for the full size pritable recipe card.
3) Play a game online. Your kids can unscramble a picture puzzle which will help improve their problem solving and reasoning skills. Click here British themed puzzles.
4) Find a local British Pub and enjoy a traditional English meal, like fish and chips. Our favorite place for English food is The Whip Tavern. It's a very popular restaurant tucked away in Coatesville, PA, and they have the best English food I've tasted on this side of the Atlantic.
Isn't this a fun way to start learning about history and celebrate from a distance?
