Every week we feature a fun and/or educational activity you can try at home or in the classroom. Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is an annual holiday created by Camp Fire USA to build kid's self esteem through encouragement and inspiration.

At Heifer we want to commend some of our own kids (young goats) on their incredible work worldwide. A dairy goat can supply a family with up to several quarts of nutritious milk a day and extra milk can be sold or used to make cheese, butter or yogurt. Families also use goat manure to fertilize gardens. With the help of goats, families in Nepal, Haiti and other countries lift themselves out of poverty.

Print out the goat mask on card stock paper. Cut out the mask and the black section of the eyes. Make slits on both sides of the mask. Cut two pieces of string and knot one end of each string through the slits. Then, secure the mask by tieing the other ends of the string for the child's head size.

Find out more about how goats are helping families around the world.
