January Themed Activities for Kids

Welcome to my calendar of January themed activities for kids. With this post, I’ve published monthly themed activities posts for the entire year. I’ll update each month’s calendar to keep the series current even in a new year.

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 January 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’m focusing here on January themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although I’ve added some calendar observances for pre-teens and teens. Just choose the observances that are best for your child/family.

Note: Be sure to click the images in my Memetales photo collage. You’ll go to the post containing the image!
