NATIONAL SCRIBBLE DAY
National Scribble Day on March 27 inspires children to kindness through art.
Each of us starts out as a little colorful, wrinkled up human being with eyes, nose and sometimes a shock of hair. Our personality develops as we go. We’re a bit like a scribble.
Children’s scribbles become more than just scribbles when eyes and a smile are added. Somehow a personality leaps onto the page and with it, encouragement for children to grow and express themselves. The positive result looking back at them spreads a surge of joy that is infectious.
That’s what’s so wonderful about scribbles – anyone can make them no matter their ability. This means everyone from Grandpa to the smallest family member can join in the day. Gather up the crayons in every color and scribble up smiles for everyone!
