The grass is green, the puddles ready for jumping, and spring is fully in bloom! There are so many to honor this month, from teachers and mothers to those who died while serving in the U.S. military. Here are 10 special family-friendly holidays and events you and your kids will want to mark in May:

National Foster Care Month

May marks the month when we recognize families making a meaningful difference in the lives of the more than 440,000 children in foster care throughout the United States. Find out more about the important work of fostering children. May 1-31

National Bike Month

Did you know that 40 percent of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles? That means we should all get on our bicycles more! Commit with your kids to ride your bikes as much as possible throughout May. And don't forget Bike to School Day on May 5! May 1-31.  Make sure you also check out our Bike Trail Guide

National Provider Appreciation Day

Just like teachers, child care providers have an enormous impact on our children's lives. It takes a village, after all. May 7

Mother's Day

It doesn't matter if the appreciation of the work you do comes in the form of a sticky hug, a handmade card, breakfast in bed, or an expensive gift. Know that you are loved today, and every day. May 9. Check out our Kids Club Online article for more great ideas to make at home for someone special.
