How To Homeschool My Child

Christmas Activities for Middle School & Elementary HomeSchool

As you may know, our family takes a long break between Thanksgiving & Christmas.  We didn’t work on formal academics. Instead, I tied our Advent & Christmas activities into our homeschool to inspire a love of learning.  Today, I’m sharing super-fun Christmas activities for middle school and elementary school.

If you’re still doing those workbooks, take a BREAK!  Your kids deserve it and so do you. Use a few of these Christmas activities next week.
