ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE KIDS DAY - Third Thursday in March

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE KID DAY®

Every year on the third Thursday in March, Absolutely Incredible Kids Day encourages adults to tell kids how absolutely incredible they are. Take the challenge a step further and WRITE it down in a letter to that absolutely incredible kid.

Children are amazing creatures. Their ability to learn, adapt and bring joy to the world is never-ending. Did you ever receive something in the mail as a child? Maybe it was a birthday card or a letter from grandma. Do you remember your face lighting up like a summer’s day? Of course, it did! Just the act of receiving a letter just for them makes a child feel important. And when the letter tells them just how amazing they are or how someone noticed the kind deed they did, receiving a letter becomes an even bigger reward.

Take out a piece of paper and write down all the ways a child in your life shines. Tell them in a personal letter how much you appreciate them. Encourage them to keep doing big things, and they will change the world!

HOW TO OBSERVE #AbsolutelyIncredibleKidDay

Tell the kids in your life why you think they are incredible, amazing, inspiring, or just plain terrific! Make them feel even more important and write it down in a letter. How many kids do you know? They all deserve some encouragement, so make sure they get it from you. Other ways to celebrate include:

  • Create a post about an amazing child you know.
  • Catch a child in the act of doing something incredible.
  • Let them overhear you giving them some praise.

Use #AbsolutelyIncredibleKidDay to share stories about amazing kids on social media.
