Colonial Christmas is a time when history is being made! Join the colonists for traditional Christmas recipes and carols carried over from many home countries, candle lit readings, and handmade gifts to treasure for years to come!
Friends! If you have been part of our community for a while, you know how much we love history. Especially when we can go places like Willimasburg, Jamestown, and Philadelphia and see it come to life. Colonial Christmas is brimming with all sorts of historical adventures and learning fun.
A few of the activities in addition to the Scripture journal and Advent Family Readings are:
A beautiful tin punch pie box
A Rococo style landscape painting
9 Men’s Morris game wood burning project
Colonial clay marbles
Silhouette art lessons
Geography of the 13 colonies
Make a Jacob’s Ladder toy
A Gentle Advent™: Colonial Christmas is a hybrid online course containing both digital elements and PDFs for you to print, activities for you to complete, and inspiration to guide you through this season.
When you have purchased A Gentle Advent™: Colonial Christmas, you will see a “My Courses” tab in the main menu. Click there and begin with the Welcome Module for you, the parent, and the links to your 24 daily modules.
The 24 daily modules are for viewing and working through with your children.
The course begins with an Advent Scripture Journal for children. The Scripture study is done daily to encourage the habit of devotion. There are printables, recipes, handicrafts, art and poetry studies, hymns and carols, nature studies, an advent calendar and more included in the course. Each PDF printable is linked on it’s corresponding day.
These activities are all meant to flow through what our family calls “Holiday Homeschool”. We do a light version of homeschool during the holiday season and this allows us to stay in the habit of learning, but also allows us to explore the season. A Gentle Advent™: Colonial Christmas will work for your family through regular, light, or “take the month of December off” homeschooling.
There is a private Facebook group for families using A Gentle Advent™ to share their projects and ask questions.
We cannot wait to walk through this beautiful season with you!
