A Huge Collection of Christmas Printables and Holiday Schooling Ideas for Your Homeschool

Sharing is caring!

Some homeschooling families choose to take the month of December off from doing regular school work. Some families go right ahead with homeschooling. Some things to consider when making the decision to continue or not with school might have to do with your children’s ages, how busy your family is during the holidays, whether your kids enjoy having some time off or whether they like to stay on a schedule and have a predictable routine, and whether or not your family will be traveling during December.

What Is Holiday Schooling?

No matter whether you choose to do your regular routine during December or whether you choose to take some time off, it’s always fun to add in some “holiday schooling” during this time of year! What is holiday schooling? It’s simply taking the opportunity to do some educational activities that are related to the holidays. This can include things you’ll probably be doing anyway such as baking, housecleaning, buying and wrapping gifts, creating (or unboxing) and displaying holiday decorations, traveling…you get the idea. This may also include doing some educational science experiments, writing activities, worksheets, etc.

We have lots of fun holiday schooling ideas and printables here on Only Passionate Curiosity, so we thought we’d try to make it a little easier for you to find what you need for your family. Below you’ll find an organized list of the ideas and activities we have available. Many of them or free or very low cost, and all are fun and educational! I hope you’ll take a look at our list, download whatever works for your family, and share the link to this article with friends and family members–even those who don’t homeschool but who might be interested in some fun educational activities while their children are out of school for the holidays.

NOTE: Please don’t share your downloads with others. Instead, please give them the link to this article and have them download their own. This helps us tremendously and helps ensure that we can keep providing inexpensive and free activities for you and others. Thank you!

ALSO: We will add to this list as we publish more Christmas activities, so be sure to come back to see what’s been added!
