Reformation Day is officially celebrated on October 31st every year. Many families choose to celebrate the Reformation and Martin Luther nailing of the 95 Theses on the church door rather than halloween. Most kids think of halloween as a night to get more candy and dress up. But you can do the same thing (and more) by celebrating Reformation Day.
Gather a group of friends or just your own family and use these printables and activities in your homeschool to create a Reformation Day Unit Study. There are so many different resources listed here that you could easily create a week-long unit – and they’re all FREE (except the books)!
