It can really be hard to keep up with our regular homeschool lessons during the Holiday Season, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years, it seems to be a very busy time. Many homeschool families find that changing things up for a few weeks can really help keep learning happening and grow many fun family memories and relationships.
Here are a few tips for Homeschooling through the Holidays
- Create a Book Basket full of books about the upcoming holiday. Add to it and pull things out over the next few weeks.
- Check out these Pinterest boards of Christmas Homeschool Copywork and this board of Winter Learning Ideas
- Take an hour or two when you have a bit of extra time. Haha, but seriously take a bit to sit down with your children and find some recipes they would like to learn to make. Betty’s 14 year old just used her EggNog recipe to make a large batch for their family to enjoy.
- Betty also likes to make a list of crafts to do with her children through the holiday season. Check out these Nativity Crafts for a few quick ideas.
What changes do you make during the busy holiday season?
Can you believe that this is the last Christmas in this decade?! Where has the time gone? I have teamed up with some pretty generous bloggers for the 6th annual Christmas Blessings Giveaway with the hopes of making this a Christmas to remember for TWO families as we close out this decade.
While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each (delivered via Paypal) – that we pray will make a big difference in their lives this Christmas season – whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help build some savings, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need.
There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning! I know it can seem tedious and time-consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is! Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them. I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.
The giveaway will run from Monday, November 18th through Wednesday, November 27th (ends at 11:59pm EST). Winner will be notified by email shortly after the giveaway ends and will have 48 hours to respond to claim the prize or another winner will be drawn. You must have a Paypal account to win. By entering this giveaway, you agree to be added to the email lists of the participating bloggers. Please be sure to read the Rafflecopter terms and conditions upon entering.
