Marvel Themed Morning Basket

For the month of June I am taking child led learning to a whole new level by letting Emily completely take over our morning basket. She chose the theme and everything that is inside it!

She said, and I quote that she wanted to have a “marvelously super summer” and I think with this basket we definitely will!

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.

  16. My 4yr old saw this basket and said he wants to do it too! We are currently doing a bug theme and he said he doeant want to do bugs he wants to do super heroes! Hahaha. Guess we’ll be doing this type of basket soon! ๐Ÿ˜

    Morning baskets are something Iโ€™m definitely going to incorporate into our lives….starting this summer. I think it will give the kids a guide to which activities are acceptable before 8am (early risers all of them ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) and keep them from asking for the remote first thing every morning!
