Hi – I’m Christy – or you might know me as Mrs. Crabtree, that’s my Homeschool Teacher name. When I was a full-time homeschool mom we had so much fun with my unique holiday of the day activities! My kids were fascinated to learn that every day was a holiday. They asked me over and over: What is today’s holiday??? Fast forward to 2019 when a fluke of circumstance has me back at home full time. My kids are now all in college, not exactly interested in studying Florence Nightingale Day
I know it’s time to whip up more of those awesome holiday of the day activities and help other homeschool moms and teacher’s just like me.

Although our name is “Homeschool” Holiday – let’s be real…Holiday of the day activities are for everyone; Home Educators, Teachers, and Parents who want to supplement their child’s education. There is no WRONG way to educate as long as it is the RIGHT fit for your family!

The Holiday of the Day can be one of your daily “Subjects” or it can be your entire curriculum depending on the age (s) of your children. Complete all the suggested activities to fill the majority of your day, or pick just one to highlight.
Use the Holiday of the Day as morning work, or “What to do When I’m Done” activities. Depending on your standards, the holiday of the day can also easily be incorporated into many language arts, history, and science curriculum standards. While specific standards are not addressed, each activity is made to be academically rigorous and engaging.
When using the holiday of the day as parents, it’s easy to choose 1 or 2 holidays a week. You can celebrate together on a quiet evening or over the weekend. You can complete the holiday of the day activities as close to the actual day a possible, but there are no real rules… just celebrate and learn!
