Happy Leap Year (Day?)


Since today's a leap day, I figured I'd put together a little round up of 'Leap Year' fun!

Whether it's a party or just a snack, why not celebrate it in a way to teach your kids all about it.
First off, what the heck is a leap year anyway?
According to Wikipedia:
"It is a year containing an additional day in order to keep the calendar year synchronized with astronomical or seasonal year."

In other words, if we didn't have a leap year every four years, over time, the calendar year would drift through the seasons too quickly.  We would then be having winter in the summer.

Let's move on to the fun now shall we?
