Sometimes it even feels stressful to try to make it simple, am I right? We all desire to make meaningful memories with our families and children during the holiday season and trying to figure out the best way to utilize our time in intentional ways can be so much pressure!
This premise is why I created The Un-Busy Christmas Learning Invitation Collection… and it’s completely FREE!
I wanted to encourage myself and other moms, to do what flows best for our own families. I wanted to provide ideas and activities that are Gospel-centered, but are simplistic in nature and are things we may already find ourselves doing in our normal day-to-day!
There are so many pressures we face in our culture, on social media, and beyond. Let’s throw off the pressure, let’s do what works best for our families. Let’s lean in towards one another so we can then lean out towards the world.
- Let’s bake, read books, and spend time together, but not out of obligation.
- Let’s show kindness to others and pray fervently together.
- Let’s make memories and go back to simplicity.
I hope and pray that this “Un-Busy” Christmas Guide is just that. A guide that you use to see what flows best for your family, leading you along the way to see what sparks joy, and supports you as you celebrate this season.
After all 2020 has brought us, we need this reset!
The Un-Busy Christmas Learning Invitation Collection includes:
- The Un-Busy Christmas “Bingo” Activity Board
- Instructions on how activities fall into different academic subject areas to give insight into the intentional teaching moments, as you, the parent/guardian lead your child(ren) to read, play, and grow this season!

- Christmas Clip Art for printing/laminating/coloring/other learning uses
- Themed Book Recommendation List
