I love to incorporate themed learning during Christmas time. Writing prompts about Christmas is a great way to keep your children’s writing skills up in a fun and creative way.
Christmas time is almost here. Do you take a long Christmas break or do you school during the holidays? Many homeschooling families take a few weeks off for Christmas, or they do a lighter holiday type of school. Some even take the whole month of December off! We take a couple of weeks off for Christmas but I don’t like my kids just laying around and watching a screen during a holiday break. They usually end up getting bored, making a huge mess in the house or fighting.
We all deserve and need a break from homeschool, but I still need to keep them busy somehow. Most of the time we are usually kept busy with baking, making Christmas gifts, and doing holiday activities. Yet there are still some days during break where I want them to continue to do something, anything that seems educational.
So, I like to do a lighter type of school with no added pressure. Christmas school is a fun term to use! I like to find fun and educational activities that will continue to keep them thinking, and practicing good handwriting and writing skills. Printable activity packets, unit studies, hymn studies, and creative writing.
Writing prompts are a fun and creative way to keep your kids learning, yet it doesn’t feel like they are doing school. Here are some fun Christmas themed writing prompts that kids will love! These are great to pull out if you are busy wrapping presents, or cooking and you want to keep the kids busy.
