an activity, big or small, to mark the occasion. It can be as simple
as mentioning World School Milk Day to the whole school as you begin
your milk program or an event that requires a little bit of planning.
Here a few ideas to get you started, we encourage you to create
your own and let
us know about it!
Have students choose a popular song or rap and recreate its lyrics
to go with a milk theme.
students dress in black and white to celebrate the Holstein cow
or do cow spotted face painting.
students enter in a Moo-ing contest and Moo like a cow. The judges
pick the top Moo-ers.
students research the word “milk” in different languages.
Ask them to create a poster advertising milk in another language.
a wall mural using a picture of the world as a center-point. Have
students surround the earth with a collage of healthy foods including
milk products and pictures of people to represent the importance
a Milk Mustache display. Take snapshots of students with their
best milk moustaches!
Carton Bowling - Take empty 1 litre or 2 litre milk cartons and
fill bottom with a little sand or material to weigh them down.
Set up bowling alley or alleys and hold a competition or tournament
to determine the best bowler.
students design new graphics for milk cartons.
a milk lunch party. Make milkshakes (chocolate or fruit flavors,
etc) to share with the class.

with water and poke tiny pinholes in the tips of the fingers.
