Drawing Day

Drop everything, pick up a pencil and draw – and then share your art! Drawing Day (sometimes referred to as Pencil Day) encourages us to spread the joy of drawing, and to share our creations with the wider community.

National Drawing Day is a day to celebrate the joys of drawing! It's a time to put pencils to paper and create whatever comes to mind. Whether you're an experienced artist or just starting out, National Drawing Day is a chance for everyone to enjoy the process of drawing.

There are no rules on National Drawing Day - just let your creativity flow! Draw what you see in front of you, or go off on a wild tangent and draw something completely imaginary. There's no wrong way to do it.

So why not take some time today to sit down with some paper and pencils (or crayons, paints, etc.) and have some fun? Draw something simple or something complex - either way, you'll be enjoying yourself and celebrating National Drawing Day!

National Yo-Yo Day

Yo-Yo day is here...hooray! Not that you need an excuse to play with your Yo-Yo. Wherever you are today, get out your Yo-Yo and impress your friends, family, and co-workers with your Yo-Yo skills. And, do it at work today! If you don't think it's appropriate at work, consider the fact that three U.S. presidents (Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon) showed off their Yo-Yo expertise while in office!

It's origin is hard to factually prove. Many believe that the Yo-Yo originated in China as early as 500-1000 B.C. However, their is some evidence that it was first used in Greece even before this time. Over the centuries the Yo-Yo has had it's ups and downs (tee,hee).  

The Yo-Yo was made wildly popular in America by businessman Donald F. Duncan Sr. He manufactured the ""Duncan Yo-Yo"" in the early 1900's.

Celebrate the Yo-YTo today by ""walking the dog"" or ""shooting the moon"", the most popular tricks.

Origin of Yo-Yo Day:

National Yo-Yo Day was established as June 6th in honor of the birthday of Donald F. Duncan Sr.

While June 6th is recognized as Yo-Yo Day, there is some unsubstantiated reference to June 10th.
