Christmas Camp Out

LittleMan had been begging me for almost a year to have his first sleep over but I was stead-fast in my stance that he was too young. Earlier this month I wanted to invite one of his little buddies to come see the Christmas lights with our family and it seemed like, if we were going to have him that close to bed time, we might as well keep him over night and give his parents a chance to sleep in the next day. And so with that reasoning, I finally caved and let LittleMan have his first sleep over.

Since we were going to see the lights, it only made sense to make it a themed sleep over: A Christmas Camp-Out.

Gross Motor Christmas Activities for Parties or Homeschool Group

We are members of a couple different local homeschool groups. One of our groups meets monthly for “gym day” which is basically just a time when the children can run off some energy with their peers in a safe, enclosed area. Of course free play is encouraged on gym days but we also supply activities to entertain the children. Because gym days are a monthly event, we try to keep supplies and prep time to a minimum. This month was December so we planned a Christmas theme to our activities.

*** GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED ***

Geeky Christmas DIYs and MEGA CASH GIVEAWAY

Something about Christmas time always seems to bring the geeks out of the woodwork (or away from their game consoles, which ever the case may be). Perhaps it is the Doctor Who Christmas special we wait [im]patiently for, or perhaps it is the stack of brand new fantasy books we know we’ll find under the tree on Christmas morn. In any case there is no shortage of geeks catching the Christmas spirit and finding unique ways to make their holidays reflect who they are. (more…)

Free Printable Harry Potter Paper Snowflake Templates

Winter is upon us. LittleMan and SunnyGirl have been enjoying sledding down the small hill in our backyard and there is talk of putting up the Christmas tree soon.
One of my favorite classic winter decorations is the humble paper snowflake. A great exercise in creativity, an excellent way to study symmetry and early multiplication, as well as being fun fine motor practice. For the little ones, a simple circle with some triangles and diamonds cut out is wonderful, but the older we get the more complex our designs tend to become. This year I decided to take a little extra time and design our snowflakes after some of the symbols we find in the Harry Potter universe. It took a bit of time but I’ve made my designs into a simple template so that all you Potterheads can recreate these snowflakes to decorate your own windows at home with.
