BFF, bestie, mejor amigo… whatever you call them, they are someone you can always count on.
Your kids may not know it, but this Friday, June 8, is the unofficial national day to commemorate the person closest to you, the one who always has your back– your best friend! Whether your child has one best friend, more than one, or none at all, this day is a great opportunity to teach them the value of friendships. We encourage you to reassure your child that, no matter what, you will always be their BFF.
“When it hurts to look back and you’re scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.”
Here are a few kid-friendly ideas for celebrating NBFD:
Fun In The Sun
Put down the phone, ditch the video games and TV, and go outside! We all know how entertaining technology can be, but this National Best Friends Day, KLS encourages kids to go out and play. It’s not only good for your health, but outdoor activities can leave long-lasting joyful memories and build stronger bonds.
A Blast From The Past
Don’t forget about what made your best friend your best friend in the first place. Do the things you and your bestie(s) like to do– those that sparked and built such a unique friendship. If you can’t physically be there with them, try calling or video-chatting. It can be nice to reminisce on your old adventures and the kind gesture will go a long way.
Out With The Old, In With The New
I know, I know, you’re having a blast doing the same ole same ole. But it can also be fun to try new things out! Go somewhere y’all have never been to like a new restaurant or a new hiking trail. New adventures tend to come with a thrill and will strengthen ties with your best friend.
We all know that things may come and go, but best friends are forever. Kids Live Safe wants to wish you a happy National Best Friend’s Day!
