Are you wondering how to celebrate this incredible magical being? Check out the following ideas for celebrating National Unicorn Day.
- Write a Story: Have you been considering writing a book centering around a unicorn. Today is the perfect time to write your unicorn story.
- Write Your Child’s Story: If you have younger children, ask them to tell a story about a unicorn. Writing down or recording the story is a great keepsake. Who knows, the story may be the building blocks to a future novel.
- Draw or Paint: Draw or paint a unicorn picture. Create a whole scene around your unicorn. For example, where does your unicorn live? What does your unicorn eat? What magic powers does your unicorn have?
- Read A Book: Go to your local library or download a story about a unicorn. The story can be for yourself or read to your young children.
