Have you heard of a morning basket? I absolutely love the idea of keeping everything in one spot to get a nice, gentle start to our day. Using a morning basket can help you to start your day with Bible, art, read alouds, and poetry study and anything else that we want to focus on. When I see something I love, I usually jump in head first with no real plan of action. This almost always ends in failure, like a really pretty basket full of things that we forget to use!
If I have a written plan in place then I have a much better chance of success and follow through. I never thought about planning out my morning basket! I really love these free printables from Faith and Good Works. These Morning Time Basket Planning Pages will help you to keep track of what you are using, what days you want to focus on a specific subject or book, and a space for notes to keep track of what you are doing and how it’s working. These would also look great in a homeschool planner or portfolio!
