Pintrest Planning

Sharing is caring!

I hate Halloween. I am so not into scary things, and I am so thrilled that October is almost over. This week, it snowed (not that it stuck, but it’s beside the point… All day long we had fluffy little snowflakes falling outside my window!) and I am in the mood to get this holiday season going!

I decided since we are homeschoolers and no one can tell me what to do (insert maniacal laughter here) that we are going to take a break from some of our regular subjects (don’t worry y’all, we’ll keep up with the three R’s!) and instead, focus on the season. I’ve been using pintrest to help me plan some super fun holiday activities, and I want to share my favorites with you!

waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil).  When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry.


Reindeer Thumbprint Ornaments, good craft to do with kids every year


Activities include: Make hot chocolate and stir with candy canes   Make a treat and take it to a friend   Watch a christmas movie and eat popcorn   Go out for a Christmas treat   Do something nice for someone   Drive around and look for Christmas lights


We are so making these SANTA ORNAMENT's this year


Looks fun, right?

We’re going to be doing activities from Evan Moor’s Teacher’s file box, some ideas from Five in a Row, and lots of pintrest inspired crafts.
On the agenda:

Native Americans Unit Study
First Thanksgiving Unit Study
FIAR Cranberry Thanksgiving
December Celebrations Unit (to include Christmas, Chanukah, and the Winter Solstice)
And Mini Rows of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Polar Express, The Night Before Christmas, Cranberry Christmas and any other Christmas book I can get my hands on!

I’m so excited!
