Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?

This beautiful, hand-illustrated drawing, writing, or discussion prompt asks kids to design a new holiday! There’s a place to name it, and mark the calendar, draw or jot down some traditions, food, and activities for this amazing new day! They can be as creative and imaginative or realistic as they like.

Then they can compare their holiday to a real celebration or to each other’s. Maybe they find ways to mash their classmates’ holidays together. Or if you have the time and resources, do a mini-celebration of everyone’s holidays. That means students have to generate a lot of language: tell each other what to do, write instructions for the food or activities, explain the true meaning of the holiday (Chocolate Croissant Day is getting too commercial!).

Great to do around Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Eid, Hannukah, Independent Day, or any other holiday!


Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!

They’re easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.

Also available as a set of PowerPoints, easy to add to classroom or distance learning slide shows or as a paperback book, great for regular journaling!
