No matter what the retailers would have us believe, it’s not Christmas yet! We still have plenty of time to use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to teach our children. But it is true that Christmas is coming. I have some great resources for helping you and your children get ready for a blessed celebration.
Already overwhelmed by holiday preparation? LJSkool reminds us that we can declare a homeschool vacation when we need to.
Just because we need some time off, doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. Make some of these cute crafts with the kids and you can share them with family.
Beauty and Bedlam shares these beautiful crafts for your own table or for giving as gifts to the hostess. Don’t miss the gratitude rolls tradition linked at the bottom of the post. I can’t wait to try this with my kids.
The holidays are the perfect time for teaching table manners. I love this post from Ask Andy About Clothes because it explains the history behind table etiquette.
This is such a great idea. I purchased these mini takeout boxes from Amazon and will have the kids help me decorate them. I will hang them from the garland in our entryway and will be using them for our Christmas bucket list. I’d like to combine a surprise with Scripture. When I come up with a plan, I will make it available to subscribers to Psychowith6.
I don’t normally include links to resources that aren’t free, but I’m excited enough about this, that I had to share (I’m not an affiliate). Audra Silva reviewed this unit study that can be done just once a week for four weeks (besides the reading). You learn the history of American Christmas traditions. The author includes a sample week on her website.
