One thing I love about the holiday season is incorporating activities into our homeschool that we don’t usually get to do. That includes studies outside of our everyday routine. It helps us to continue cultivating a love of learning and keeping things from getting too mundane! And it’s so fun to dive into Christmas traditions around the world for kids in your homeschool.

Here Are 5 Ways That You Can Study Christmas Traditions Around The World For Kids

Christmas Planet from Homeschool Planet is an entertaining way to continue learning through the holiday season. Most children are naturally curious about other cultures, and this study delivers. It covers 14 countries and prompts your child to research Christmas traditions and much more. Learning about the differences between cultures in various countries is genuinely fascinating. It will keep your children engaged and curious for more!

This Christmas Around The World Lapbook from Homeschool Mastery Academy will be a hit for your hands-on learners. Kids love to get creative while putting together this lapbook covering Christmas in Italy, Ireland, Canada, England, Australia, and China. Spain, and France.

More Ideas to Enhance the Study of Christmas Around The World:

โ€ข Bake or cook holiday recipes from each country.
โ€ข Find countries in the atlas or maps to reinforce mapping skills.
โ€ข Create a workbook to gift the grandparents or keep.
โ€ข Allow your children to create an oral presentation to share with the whole family about the tradition they find most interesting.

We hope your family enjoys these ideas as much as we have. I love resources that are already prepped and planned out. Just purchase and print! You can buy them once and use them year after year in your homeschool too.

    Cant wait to get started on the “Christmas around the world” unit study. Thank-you

  2. How fun! I took my family to Guatemala where I grew up this past summer, and it really opened their eyes. I lived in England for 3 years, too, so Christmas for me is a mixture of cultures.
