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!
I have started with Halloween as it is the nearest holiday to when I am writing this post. But everything else will be added in date order. Use the table of contents if you know what holiday you are preparing for.
