Best Friends Day

June 8 celebrates National Best Friends Day, a day to honor that one special person you call your “best friend.” This day is a time to show your best friend how much you appreciate them, how special and important they are to you, and how you cherish their friendship.

To help you celebrate your friendships, I’ve compiled a list of books and craft ideas below.

Crafts:

Would you like to tell your friends what makes them special to you? You can make a crown with all your friends on it. Or you could make something else special to tell them what you value about them. Or you could use your imagination and create your very own way to express yourself. Have fun!
