Our activity days next week, is this too much?


Recommended Posts

For Monday- Wednesday of next week we are keeping it simple and having fun. I want to add in a lot of arts and crafts, since sometimes this is one area that gets skipped.


This is what I have planned out. Am I over killing it? Or does this look like it will work. (I do have my supply lists written next to each...I am just copy and pasting from my schedule) Also I am open to any other great craft ideas.

Looks BUSY and FUN!! My household would love that week!


Just this evening during bath time for the kids I penciled in a COMPLETELY different week for us...we're LAPBOOKING this week!!


We have school Monday - Thursday this week. And we did a few crafts last week and made our gingerbread houses today because the kids couldn't wait and I planned that for this upcoming week..so now we've got more time to focus on lapbooking.


I've got a Subtraction & Addition facts lapbook planned for DD5 as well as a fun Ocean theme lapbook that includes writing, coloring, reading, math, geo and games!


I've got a Multiplication facts lapbook planned for DD7 as well as a fun Ocean theme lapbook that includes writing, geo, reading, math and some fun activities.


Yes it's still educational but it's def. a FUN way of learning this week. We try to make learning fun more but the reality is we don't as often as we could hope to.


Oh and yes Tuesday is first day of Winter so I'm planning a lapbooking on Winter for that day for us all to do together! :)
