Advent Activities for Kids

how to simplify your homeschool

Today at Mom’s Monday Lunch Bunch, I shared lots of Advent activities for kids. These are different from the ones I share on my 3 Clues to Keep Christ in Christmas workshop, but they do focus on putting Christ back into Advent & Christmas. I believe it’s important to keep Christ the center of your celebrations and Advent activities for kids are the perfect place to start.

Before I close, one of the best pieces of advice I received the first year I homeschooled was to take a break during December. A friend of mine who had kids the same ages, but had homeschooled since Kindergarten, told me she “quits” formal homeschooling.

What you might say? Quit homeschooling for a month.

Well, not really!

From this piece of advice, our family began a Christmas tradition of integrating Christmas and Advent into our homeschooling. I mention a few ideas on our 3 Clues to Keep Christ in Christmas online workshop. You can reserve your seat for free HERE.
