How to Homeschool Through the Holidays?3 min read
Holidays can be a bit troublesome if you do not have a clue of all that you can do and how to kill time. At the same time, you also want to have your kids have some productive time so that they learn some useful skills while homeschooling is paused.
Kids look for fun activities, and it’s a bonus if you can make them educative and interactive as well. Here are some fun and fruitful ideas for this holiday season, that can do exactly that.
6 Fun Activities For This Holiday Season
Take a tour around the world through books
Books are a great way to help your kid travel around the world. You could make a game of it. For instance, print out a blank world map. As your kid reads a book from each part of the world, they can color in the country.
Could there be a better way to teach your kids about the different cultures around the world and geography at the same time while they have fun?
Embrace creativity and some glitter – and go all-in with handmade decorations and gifts
From excursion wreaths to soup made in a jar, there is no scarcity of ways to stretch the craft muscular tissues through the holidays. You can also check some handicraft ideas on Pinterest and kickstart your own S.U.P.W. lessons with your little one, this holiday season.
Take a break from your regular chores
Making investments in some unit or interest-led studies can be a great idea during this holiday season.
Interest-led projects are a great and uncomplicated way to help your kid learn. You can take your little one out for a small walk into nature or plan a painting session or maybe just some beach visits.
Make time for some fun short trips
The holidays are a great time to head out (weather permitting, of course). You could make a day trip to the coast or plan a kid-friendly trekking adventure.
What about these little museums and explorations you’ve put off for much less crowded times? Hike in a neighborhood park and take in all the signs of wintry weather knocking on the door.
Binge on informational documentaries
Dim the lights, have some popcorn ready, and get comfortable for a documentary-a-day festival right from the comforts of your own living room!
There are many methods to discover brilliant nonfiction programs. Documentaries are a great way to get your kid interested in the world around them.
Do a challenge
Is everyone in your household a little competitive? Maybe you can attempt a 7-day or 30-day challenge! Who can make the most precise observations about the room they’re in or do the most Maths facts?
Make it a competition in your family. The Annual Holiday Cup. You could have categories such as most acts of kindness completed, or the best story, and so on.
Keep this in mind…
You don’t HAVE to spend each minute with instructional activities. Instead, you can take some time for self-care, neighborhood construction with friends, or even curl up with a book and have a read-along.
Kids usually feel frustrated during holidays as they have nothing to do. It is important that the holidays are spent refreshingly, getting your kids ready for the next homeschooling sessions. Spent the right way, the holidays can be a great time to bond as a family and learn together.
