Remember the days when you would sit there at work, silently envying the moms who got to volunteer at your child’s school for the holidays?
Oh, if you only had the chance to volunteer . . . your classroom parties would rival all previous holiday classroom parties. Your child’s classmates would beg you to always be the homeroom mom.
Well, guess what? Your wish has come true – albeit, not by choice. But hey! You now have the opportunity to put on the most spectacular holiday classroom party right in your own home . . . and I’ve got some ideas to help you out.
Thank you Pinterest!
Three years ago, I created a Christmas board on Pinterest so I would have fun and creative holiday activities handy when my grandbabies came to visit.
Fast forward to 2020, I now have over 950 pins for cookie recipes, table decorations, fun gift ideas, Christmas playlists, and games for ALL ages. Yes, even your “I’m too old for kids’ games” teenager will have fun going on a selfie scavenger hunt or playing “What’s on your cellphone?” bingo.
There are also plenty of great crafts ideas ranging from preschool age on up to your “too-cool-for-skool” college kids – and beyond. You’ll find great ideas for creating a fun hot chocolate bar for pennies on the dollar (don’t you just love Dollar Tree?) and Christmas tree and table decorating ideas that will make your guests’ jaws drop.
But the best thing about these helpful ideas is that you can tweak them to fit any holiday or special occasion.
So this year, since we’re all home on quarantine, why not have some fun this holiday season with your little ones. Satisfy those Common Core cultural studies requirements (tamales, anyone?) with a little creativity.
Got some ideas of your own you’d like to share? Please, by all means, post them here or comment on which pins you’ve tried.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Have a fun and joyous holiday season homeschooling with the creative ideas I’ve pinned on Pinterest!
