Bonza Bottler Day is celebrated every month on the day when the number of the month matches the number of the day (i.e. January 1, March 3, June 5 and so on).
The idea to celebrate this occurrence came from the mind of Elaine Fremont who established the first Bonza Bottler Day in 1985. Elaine Fremont established this day because she realized that August was the only month that didn’t have a celebration.
What Does “Bonza Bottler Day” Mean?
Bonza is a word that the Australians use to mean awesome or super when something incredible happens. Although Bonza Bottler Day originated in America, during the past few decades, Bonza Bottler has become a worldwide sensation.
Interesting Ways to Celebrate With Kids:
- Surprise, Surprise! : Start Bonza Bottler Day with a little surprise for your kids. At home, consider tying bunches of balloons to their bedposts or preparing their favorite breakfast on that day. At school, have little treats waiting on your students’ desks or bring in a surprise visitor.
- Treat ‘em Fave Foods: Bonza Bottler is the perfect excuse to have a little party for no particular reason. Decide what type of food you would like to have and when you would like to enjoy it. Maybe your kids would like to have a special breakfast or maybe they would like to bake cookies together and enjoy them with milk after lunch. Think about making decorations to complete the party.
- Bonza Fun Ideas: Also, Bonza Bottler is also a great excuse to enjoy something out of the ordinary. For example, it might be fun to watch a movie in your pajamas in the middle of the day. Another fun idea is to make a big fort in the living room or the backyard.
- Make Learning Exciting: For teachers, it is not hard to find ways to incorporate Bonza Bottler into a current curriculum. For example, if you’re in the middle of an animal unit during this month’s Bonza Bottler day, you can schedule a field trip to a zoo or farm or have an animal shelter employee bring animals to the school.
