Are you looking for Joyful Christmas Activities For Your Homeschool? We love slowing down during the holidays and taking part in all that the Christmas season has to offer. That doesn’t mean being busy with activities.

Although, that may work for you and your family. I like to slow down, read lots of holiday books, watch loads of Christmas movies, and drink lots of hot cocoa!

Christmas Homeschooling

I want to build warm Christmas memories of coziness, love, and maybe twinkle lights for my children. This doesn’t mean that we are not still learning! On the contrary, we are learning all the time! But during Christmas homeschooling, that learning shifts to incorporate the holidays. Christmastime is when we pause some of our more traditional schoolings to favor more relaxed and festive pursuits.

More baking and handicrafts are happening around the holidays. We learn about the holidays around the world as well as learning about Christmas music and the composers!

Then there are the Festive Christmas Chalk Pastel Art Lessons like The Nutcracker and A Christmas Carol! But we especially love art lessons that incorporate our favorite Christmas book to movie creations!

Christmas Book to Movie: Activities For The Grinch

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch!

I have read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” every year on Christmas Eve, and we love watching the original cartoon too. It’s a tradition that started when my son was just a little fella. Now my son and daughter enjoy this read aloud along with the cartoon, AND Nana’s How to Draw The Grinch in Chalk Pastels!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever Art Lesson

I am a huge holiday tradition enthusiast, and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever makes it into our read-aloud stack almost every November or December. I have read it so many times that I have gotten pretty good at all of the voices if I don’t say so myself. It’s much more fun that way!
