August is National Aviation Month and gives multiple opportunities to learn about flight! Amelia Earhart completed a non-stop flight across North America on August 25, 1932. Wilbur Wright’s birthday is August 19, 1867. That same day is also National Aviation Day. The classic children’s book, The Glorious Flight, was written by Alice Provensen whose birthday is also in August!
August also brings us National Picnic Month and several delicious days to celebrate such as National Frozen Custard Day, National Raspberry Cream Pie Day, National Banana Split Day, and even Eat a Peach Day! You could even eat a yummy peach while on a picnic.
Whether you are at the park picnicking, in the kitchen making cherry turnovers, or studying dogs or the history of flight–make some wonderful memories and make the days count!
