March – Causes, celebrations and silliness

March 1, 2018 6:30 am

March is full of fun and interesting things to celebrate and also highlights some causes that use March to raise awareness (like the Red Cross, Music in Schools and Social Work).   Take a look at the following list and links and try to think of some fun things you can do as a family or as an Au Pair with your host kids.   The links give some great suggestions for projects or excursions.

And if you’d like to share pictures of your fun for our next newsletter, we’d love to see them! Email them to Media@aupairfoundation.org
