Star Wars Themed Morning Basket

We had big plans for a Walt Disney World vacation centered around Star Wars fun at Hollywood Studios the first week of May. When that was canceled Emily had a brilliant plan to do Star Wars School instead.

With May the Fourth coming up I knew she was onto something!

Because our morning basket is the only consistent thing we are actually getting to this late in our school year I decided it would be best to center our morning basket around Star Wars.

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.

With May the Fourth right approaching rather quickly it seemed very fitting for our May Morning Basket to be Star War Themed.
