Happy International Women's Day!
March 8 is observed by many countries around the world as a day to honor women and to focus on the advancement of women in society. Each year a theme is assigned to Women's Day, and this year the theme is "inspiring change."
While the role of women has progressed, there are still issues that need to be faced here in America and in the rest of the world. We at Franklin Goose believe in raising children, girls and boys, who will be world changers, actively making our world a better place.
So to inspire your little world changer, here are a few of our favorite things:
We believe in the power of education and knowledge. Inspire your child to explore the world with their Skip Hop Panda Backpack and Sugar Booger Arctic Pals Lunch Sack. Read books like I Am Different! Can You Find Me? and Hello, Washington D.C. Flash cards like Petitcollage's On The Go A-Z Alphabet Art Cards and Our World Floor Puzzle are a great option for your little world traveler. Petitcollage's Mix & Match Animal Jamboree allows for your children to express their creativity and personality, while puzzles like the Beleduc 5-Layer Girl puzzle introduces children to the various systems of the body. Spark your child's curiosity in nature with the Plan Toys Leaf Magnifier.
For imaginative play, the Educo Fresh Food Market Cash Register is a lot of fun, but it's also a great way to learn counting and even finances. Encourage an interest in music with instruments like the Plan Toys Banjo and Oval Xylophone.
And healthy minds need healthy bodies. Instill a healthy attitude toward exercise and fitness early with The Little Yoga Mat. Keep the Eco Vessel Stainless Steel Water Bottle handy for yoga sessions or playing outside on the Prince Lionheart Balance Bike. A friendly Zoli Reflectoid is a fun way to keep kids safe when playing outside goes late.
