This time of year, it’s always fun to make every part of the day engaging and festive! That’s why I think you’ll like the activities in this post, including 20 days worth of holiday morning work for December.
I like to incorporate a little holiday fun during the month of December because changing up our regular routine with some holly jolly fun is typically what keeps my kiddos engaged and on-task when they’re full of the “Christmas Spirit,” if you know what I’m saying. Let’s be real – they’re anxiously anticipating the guy in the red suit and you’re just trying to keep it together until break, one peppermint latte at a time.
Here’s a few activities you can include in your day that are on-theme and educational. Win win.
