  • It's Groundhog Day!

    February 2 is Groundhog Day!

    Every year in a town called Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil lets the whole country know how much longer our winter will last. Here's how it works:

    The little critter emerges from a tree trunk (it's a specially made one just for the holiday) on the morning of February 2. There are hundreds of reporters and photographers there to greet him! If Phil sees his shadow, we will have six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, we will have an early spring.

    Here are some fun facts to celebrate Groundhog Day:

    • According to legend, Punxsutawney Phil gets a sip of special juice every year that gives him 7 more years of life.
    • Groundhog Day falls right between the winter solstice and spring equinox. Some people believe that sunny skies on that day mean that the rest of winter will be cold and cloudy. So if Phil can see his shadow on that day, the idea goes, winter will be yucky for the next six weeks.
    • Groundhog Day has been celebrated since 1887.
    • Here's an interesting chart that shows how well Phil has been able to predict the weather!

    What do you think will happen on Tuesday, February 2? Will Phil see his shadow? We can't wait to find out.

     

     

  • It's Belly Laugh Day!

    Sunday, January 24 is Belly Laugh Day!

    What's a belly laugh? It's when you laugh so hard it comes straight from your stomach. It's when you laugh so hard that you double over. Remember the last time a friend told you a joke so funny that you couldn't stop laughing? That was a belly laugh.

    We here at Oopsy Daisy think every day should be Belly Laugh Day because laughing is good for us. There's nothing better than a good laugh, don't you think?

    So in honor of Belly Laugh Day, here are a few jokes for you to share. We hope they'll give you a few belly laughs!

     

    Knock, knock.

    Who’s there?

    A broken pencil.

    A broken pencil who?

    Oh never mind, it’s pointless.

     

    Q: Where do pencils go for vacation?
    A: Pencil-vania.

    Q: I start with 'P' and end with 'E', but I have thousands of letters. Who am I?
    A: Post Office

     

    Will you remember me in 2 minutes?

    Yes.

    Knock, knock.

    Who’s there?

    Hey, you didn’t remember me!

     

    Q: What musical instrument is found in the bathroom?
    A: A tuba toothpaste.

    Keep the belly laughs going with some art to make you happy!

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    Monday, January 18 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

    Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a federal holiday, which means that the whole country celebrates it. Many schools and government offices are closed. The US Postal Service does not deliver mail and many banks and libraries are closed. The holiday is on the third Monday of the month of January because Dr. King's birthday is January 13.

    Who was Martin Luther King, Jr.?

    He was a Baptist minister and leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. In the mid 1950s, Dr. King sought equality for African Americans, poor people, and those who were treated unfairly by society. He used a tactic known as non-violence to get his point across. This means that he led peaceful protests like marches and walkouts instead of trying to make his point with violence. Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, the same year the Civil Rights Act was passed. A year later, in 1965, the Voting Right Act was passed in large part due to the efforts he led.

    Dr. King was killed in 1968. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was declared a Federal Holiday in the US in 1986.

    How do people celebrate?

    Many people honor the memory of Dr. King by volunteering on his day. Because he dedicated his life to helping people who needed it, volunteering is a good way to remember him.

  • New Year's Resolutions for Kids!

    In 2016, lots of adults make new year's resolutions. But how about New Year's Resolutions for Kids? At Oopsy Daisy we think kids are pretty terrific as they are. But lots of kids are asked, at school or at home, "what's your new year's resolution?" Some kids may decide to study more, or to keep their room clean. Or maybe to get outside and play!

    We've got some ideas for New Year's resolutions for kids, as well as a few ways to keep those resolutions.

    Study More: If your resolution is to study more, it's not too hard to do! Just find yourself a quiet spot and set it up as your study space. If you don't have your own desk, that's okay. Maybe it's a corner of your room or maybe it's a spot at the kitchen table. Make that your work spot and try not to use it for anything else. Once you set a pattern of using that space to study, you may find that your mind automatically switches into "study mode" whenever you sit there! We've got some fun art that can help you learn, too, like map art and alphabet art.  It's a perfect way to decorate your study spot!

    Keep Your Room Clean: It's your spot (or maybe your spot with a brother or sister), and you can keep it nice and clean if you want to. Start by making your bed every morning. And every evening, set a timer for five minutes. Just five! Spend those minutes tidying. And before you know it, these two simple steps will help you keep your room nice and neat. Here's another way to keep your room tidy: take a look at our selection of wall decals! They are like giant stickers for your wall. If you ever want to re-do your room, you can peel off the decal and move it wherever you'd like.

    Get Outside and Play: This one is so easy! If you want to get more exercise, just move around. If it's too cold to go outside, or if there's no outdoor space where you like to play, put on some music and dance, dance, dance. We've got some fun art to help you get pumped to exercise, too.

    Happy New Year!

  • Oopsy Daisy Art in the Movies!

    We're always thrilled to spot Oopsy Daisy art in the movies. In fact, two of our favorite  recent films feature Oopsy Daisy art. The best part? You can still see these films in theaters or on DVD. And what's even better,  you can buy the same art for yourself.

    lionmodern-animals-red-fox_nb18146_2

    Daddy's Home, starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, is in theaters now. Check out the bedroom the kids in the film share: Modern Animals - Lion is hanging cheerily on the wall while Modern Animals - Red Fox is visible in the hallway. Both are graphic, bright pieces by Sass & Peril, by designer Shannon Kennedy. Check out our Sass & Peril assortment, which includes a whole collection of different, shape-based animals. Display one for a simple and clean look or create your own curated gallery. And, if you can stop laughing for a moment, see if you can spot the Lion and Fox in Daddy's Home. This isn't the first time Sass & Peril's Oopsy Daisy art has hit the screen: it's also been on TV shows including Revenge and Glee.

     

    our world

     

    If you're looking for a rental to watch at home, Ant-Man is out now. Not only is this Paul Rudd superhero film exciting and family-friendly, but it also features Oopsy Daisy art. Our World, by Donna Ingemanson, makes an appearance in the film. This perennial customer favorite can be personalized with your child's name (or "Ant-Man," if you'd like!) We've got many other Donna Ingemanson prints, too, so you can be a superhero and find one that's perfect for your favorite little bug.
