This month marks the third month that Emily has taken over planning and prepping our morning baskets. When she realized it was October she immediately took off on her own version of a Halloween inspired basket. Since animals are like her favorite thing in the entire world it did not surprise me one bit that she found a way to incorporate them by adding “creatures of the night” to her basket.
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.
