We've Been Decorating

Our homeschooling curriculum has been focused around a Christmas theme for the last week or so and as a result the kids have made a lot of Christmas projects and decorations. It's been a fun way to keep them busy while teaching them all about Christmas customs around the world, the history of some of the decorations we use,  as well as the Nativity story and other holiday gems like The Gift of the Magi.

Everything they worked on was created out of simple household items like paper plates, tissue paper, construction paper and direct from the printer coloring pages with the exception of the mug centerpiece which required a mug (obviously), some floral foam (the green foam), some wire, bits of evergreen branches, and miscellaneous Christmas beads.  Throw in some safety scissors and scotch tape and we had inexpensive projects for each day of the week.   The kids had great fun and ended up learning too, you can't beat that.

Fun projects. Besides the decorations, you're making some great memories too. Homeschooling is such a blessing to families!
