4 Ways to Celebrate Leap Day

Leap Day only comes once every four years so be sure to make this day count! Here are four ways to make this the best Leap Day yet.

1. Create a Time Capsule!

Create a time capsule that you cannot open for the next four years until the next Leap Day. Include items that remind you of the present including newspaper or magazine clippings, pictures, event ticket stubs, a list of everything you did to celebrate Leap Day, and anything else that would be fun to see in four years. In addition to making a time capsule, make a list of all the things you want to accomplish in the next four years before the next leap year. You can put a copy of this list in your time capsule so you can see how much you accomplished over the years. By creating a time capsule, you are able to capture the moment and excitement of the uniqueness of Leap Day!

2. Get Moving and Leap for Leap Day!

Leap Day is a great day to get moving. One fun way is to take a dance class or go out dancing with friends. You can also sign up for a Leap Day 5k or 10k. Being active has so many health benefits and there are ways that it can be very fun. Take advantage of the fact that Leap Day only comes once every four years and make this day count to be the start of an active lifestyle. Leap for joy!

3. Leap into a New Activity

Do you ever feel like you need an excuse to try something new? If so, let Leap Day be your excuse to do something spontaneous. Organize a game day with friends to play your favorite games or host a “Leap Day” movie party. Take advantage of this extra day to cross something off your bucket list, try a new activity, or do something exciting and out of the ordinary.

4. Celebrate Leap Day Birthdays!

If you have any friends or family members with a Leap Day birthday, celebrate their birthday with their Leap Day age. For example, you can celebrate an adult’s birthday by going to Skyzone, playing laser tag, or roller skating. This is a fun way to break out of the norm and add some laughter into the day. Laughter is one of the best ways to reduce stress, so make this an exciting and fun day.
