Dinosaur Themed Morning Basket

Ever since we did the first unit in Passport to Adventures years ago Emily has had a mild obsession with dinosaurs. I am actually surprised we have made it this long without doing a dinosaur themed morning basket. Never the less, we are embarking on a dino-tastic adventure this month!

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.

Would like to see our morning basket in action and see how we have made it worked for us over the years? Then check out our Join Us For Morning Time series on our YouTube channel.
