In December we like to do what we call Christmas School and that would not be complete without a Christmas themed morning basket. After four years of spending the month of December having tons of Christmas fun it has become quite a tradition for us.
There is just nothing better than doing morning basket every day next to the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree cuddled up together on the couch.
The four main catergories of things that we include in our morning basket each month are read alouds, madlibs and/or trivia, hands-on activities, and games. The main reason we include these are because they are Emily’s favorite things and I find I like to start our day by connecting and filling her love tank.
Each morning (or whatever time we start our homeschool day) she enjoys the hands-on activities while I read aloud, then we do either a mad lib or some trivia, and we finish our morning basket time by playing a game together. What’s in this basket might look like a lot but chipping away at it every day for a month normally ensures we will get to enjoy it all.
