Hello Friends of Kidding Around,
Happy Father’s Day!
Happy Pride Month!
There are many ways to educate your children about Pride Month, LGBTQ rights and history. Did you know that Gilbert Baker made the very first rainbow flag in 1978 by hand dying strips of fabric in trash cans? Doesn’t that inspire you to make some rainbows of your own?
Below we’ve compiled a few resources that will help you to discuss pride with your family and to have fun doing it!
Let’s make some rainbows!
