Wow! What can I say?! It’s already December!

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 “Montessori-Inspired Unit Studies + Holiday and Seasonal Activities” 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’m focusing here on December 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
