Best friends come into our lives and leave a permanent imprint on our hearts. They’re the people that we consider family and sometimes the ones we’ve known the longest. In honor of Best Friends Day, here are some fun activities for young best friends to do on their play dates:
- Bake together: Friends work together to get the job done; isn’t that right? Little buddies can pretend to whip up some delicacies together or take turns cooking up a meal for each other to celebrate their friendship.
- Enjoy the fresh air, hang out and cool off: It’s terrific that Best Friends Day falls in the beginning of June every year because kids can spend their play dates enjoying the fresh air. Kids can swing on the swings, splash and scoop in an activity table, have a picnic or make-believe that they live together in a playhouse.
- Cruise around: Mom and dad can take little pals on a stroll around the park or local zoo. They can enjoy snacks in the wagon and explore the scenery. There is nothing like being chauffeured around with your best friend by your side!
Best friends know how to make each other feel special no matter what. Here are a few quotes dedicated to those extraordinary people in our lives:
