December Themed Activities for Kids

It’s hard to imagine that it’s already time for Christmas countdown activities! Today, I’m sharing my calendar of December themed activities for kids. You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts listed by themes in my “Should You Use Unit Studies?” post. Here you’ll find lots of themes for December according to holiday or calendar observances.

You’ll find more links for calendar observances in my “Enliven Your Homeschool with Some Calendar Fun” post. The post has links to resources for calendar observances for any level. I especially  focus here on December themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although many of the calendar observances are for pre-teens and teens as well.
