Looking for family fun this week? We have ideas for you! Here are five holidays and events happening May 11-18.

1. Thank a nurse

It's National Nurses Week! Thank a nurse you know and ask your child to write a note to their school nurse. To say nurses have been through the wringer in the past few years is an understatement. Let them know their dedication is appreciated! Through May 12

This Macaroni KID site needs a publisher to keep the local events calendar full!

2. Announce a family rhyme time competition

Have a family limerick writing contest for National Limerick Day! Make it more fun by requiring family members' names to be used. Need inspiration? We like this one, author unknown. May 12

There was an odd fellow named Gus,
When traveling he made such a fuss.
He was banned from the train,
Not allowed on a plane,
And now travels only by bus.

3. Make chocolate chip cookies

Show your appreciation on National Chocolate Chip Day by making chocolate chip cookies or pancakes or whatever else you can dream up with your kids. Try these delicious chocolate chip cookie bars. May 15

4. Try for a hole in one

Take the kids for a friendly game of miniature golf at your favorite local course for National Miniature Golf Day. May 14

5. Spread kindness

It's National Do Something Good for Your Neighbor Day this week. No better time for a random act of kindness! Here are 10 ideas. May 16
