Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

We homeschool all year round, however, when it comes to fun holidays, we put away the core curriculum and do fun educational holiday activities instead.

This post will be constantly added to as we create new content. But if there is a holiday we haven’t covered that you want us to do please leave me a comment below.

I have added a countdown timer for the upcoming holiday so you can get prepared nice and early!

These holiday activities although do have educational value, they are ALL FUN! Which around the holidays is the most important thing! Check out all of our holiday fun posts here.

Use the table of contents if you know what holiday you are preparing for.

Holiday Activities

I have recently come across this book A Year Full of Celebrations and Festivals with over 90 fun and fabulous festivals from around the world! Of course these I have listed below are covered, but there are so many more celebrations I had never heard of!

Carry on reading for all of the holidays we celebrate and the resources we will be using to have fun with. Most of these are completely free and perfect holiday activities.
