Global Hug Your Kid Day Ideas
This year (2017), it was celebrated on July 17th. If you didn’t realize, no worries, any day is a great day for hugs. The goal of Global Hug Your Kid Day is that parents around the world should take the time to hug their child.
So, besides hugging your child (which I hope you do every day), how can you celebrate Global Hug Your Kid Day? A lot will depend on the age of your child and what their interests are, but here are a few ways to get started.
Make this Hug Craft
If you’re the parent of a young child, make this adorable hug craft with them. All you need are a few basic crafting supplies that you probably already have in your art closet.
Feel Good Movies
Watch a feel good movie with an epic hug scene. Depending on your child’s age, you may want to watch Lilo and Stitch, Frozen, Pokemon, or ET. My personal favorite is Lord of the Rings when Frodo is reunited with his friends.
Bake Some Cookies
I love these cute bear hugging cookies and they would make a great together time idea for you and your child. I really love that they use almonds and not candy in them. You’ll want to pick up this bear cookie cutter first.
Read a Hug Book
Now, it’s always a good day for a book. Try I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug (ages 4-8), Daddy Hugs (ages 1-4), or Hug a Sloth (ages 4-8). Want to read a good hug book yourself? Try Hugs: Daily Inspirations for Women.
Of course, before you start all of this hugging, you’ll want to make sure that your skin is soft and huggable. Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer offers a solution for dry skin to severely dry skin. It has water-activated properties that penetrate deep into skin’s surface.
Plus, it all happens in the shower, no rinsing required. So, you can just dry off, dress and go! By incorporating Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer into your regular showering routine, you can finally conquer your troubling skin issues â€“ and achieve soft, sustainably healthy skin for life. So, look for it at your favorite mass retailer.
