My daughter loves the show ”Sherlock” on BBC. It's on Netflix. It actually inspired her to do a Sherlock Holmes curriculum for 10th grade next year.

I am also going to Google some Sherlock Holmes movies!
We are trying something new. We ordered Christian Cottage unit studies and plan to go around the world, so to speak. I am looking forward to the Highland fling and blind man's bluff!

Grab a FREE unit study - A Martyr's Christmas - and help your kids learn about the persecuted Church.

Although we're taking a break until after the New Year, I still wanted to have some productive activities planned that would be educational but fun. If anyone is looking for something similar, this is what I've decided to do. Some of these were ideas I picked up from blogs, others are my own.
1. We cut book shapes out of foam from the dollar store, wrote names of books we've read, and made them into tree ornaments. Then we put up a little two-foot tree and decorated it with the book ornaments.

2. I pulled together 24 Christmas books. Some are from our collection; the others are from the library. We wrapped them in Christmas paper and placed them under our book tree. Starting on December 1, someone will pick out a wrapped book, and we will read it together as a family. We'll do this every day through the 24th.

3. In order to teach the importance of giving, my children have all randomly chosen the name of one other sibling for whom they have to make a Christmas gift. Some of my kids just wanted to give toys that they no longer played with, but I told them that putting their own time in to make something is as important as the gift itself. Some things my kids have decided to make are:
- homemade clay colored with KoolAid packets
- muffin tin crayons
- a flower crown
- a handmade pillow

4. I also have 25 writing prompts for my kids to journal about from 12/1-12/25. These prompts are all either Christmas or winter-related. My kids will have the option of not doing this, since we are on break, but the ones who do will get a little prize.

5. The last thing I have planned is our annual milk container gingerbread house. I buy small chocolate milk cartons, which the kids drink and rinse out. Then we use white icing as glue to attach Graham crackers to the outside of the carton. (It actually does look like a little house!) Then we use the icing to glue on an assortment of candy to the outside. Miniature candy canes, peppermints, gum drops, and skittles all work well. We've also used pretzel sticks for the roof and Fruit Loops with the candy.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah!

Just a quick tip- we made paper plate clocks yesterday, but I couldn't find paper Brads and didn't have time to drive all over, so I improvised. I used a push pin to hold down the hands, broke off a pencil eraser, and covered the pointy tip of the tack with it.
