National Scribble Day

Scribbling is an art form that anyone can do, and we do mean anyone. It talks absolutely no inherent artistic talent and it’s a great way for people to cure their boredom. Millions of school kids all over the world are probably scribbling something at this very moment, and we’d be surprised if quite a few adults weren’t scribbling mindlessly as well.

That’s more than enough reason for people to celebrate International Scribble Day on March 27th. This holiday encourages everyone to do some scribbling. After all, it’s a great way to keep one’s mind busy and may even relieve a bit of stress.

The History Of International Scribble Day

Although people have been scribbling since the invention of writing, this holiday hasn’t been around all that long. It was first invented in 2019 when Diane Alber invented the holiday. She was the author of “I’m NOT Just A Scribble,” a book that encourages children to create art whether or not they have innate artistic abilities. It’s been a helpful holiday on which teachers and parents can encourage children to scribble to their heart’s content.

Observing International Scribble Day

Scribbling can be a great creative exercise for children and adults alike, regardless of whether they pursue a career as an artist. It’s something that works out many parts of the brain and helps build a child’s sense of worth.

That’s why everyone should observe International Scribble Day and help children express their inner artist. While doing so, people should also make sure to use the hashtag #InternationalScribbleDay to encourage everyone to observe this holiday as well. Every artist on the planet has started their artistic pursuit with a scribble, so let’s not discourage anyone.
