Middle Child Day History

National Middle Child Day began in 1986 to celebrate that in-between child of the family. In fact, sometimes, larger families might have more than one middle child! Elizabeth Walker created National Middle Children’s Day back in the 1980s, in order to honor those children – middle children – that often felt left out.

But there are many cool things about being the middle child in a family! Middle children usually develop important skills such as empathy, diplomacy, and leadership. In fact, many U.S. presidents were middle children! Besides, many children are often very artistic and creative.

Let’s make your middle-born family members feel special with some fun activities!
