Event Ideas for Babywearing Week 2011

Babywearing Week is coming and you want to celebrate!
But what to do?

We have an idea for each day of the week that your group can use.
Use the activity listed for every day, use just one or two or come up with your own ideas... the point is to get out there and CELEBRATE!

Make it Monday--DIYers are encouraged to post photos of their creations. Groups are encouraged to host a make-it event highlighting free patterns that are out there for the making as well as proper construction and materials.

Take it Tuesday--Groups and individuals are encouraged to take info on babywearing and their local group to organizations and business that advocate babywearing--OB offices, MW offices, Ped. offices, childrens' boutiques, mom groups, etc.

Walking Wednesday--Groups head out as a group on a babywearing walk somewhere that is high traffic and walking friendly.

Teach it Thursday--Individuals and groups are encouraged to TEACH on an individual or group basis something about the art of babywearing, whether it's a simple introduction or an in-depth presentation.

Photo Friday--We encourage folks to post photos of babywearing on our fb page as well as their other social outlets. We will also be announcing the winner(s) of our photo contest.

Shout it Saturday--Groups are encouraged to formally participate in a local activity in the form of a booth or sponsorship or a volunteer opportunity. Show your community babywearing in action. Have a booth at a local event. Sponsor an event or an individual at an event, volunteer as a group somewhere while wearing your babies. Get creative. Find somewhere to shout out about the power of babywearing.

Cyber Sunday--Groups and individuals are encouraged to use all their social media to report on their experiences over the week. And they are encouraged to post links on our fb page.
