December can be particularly difficult for homeschool moms when it comes to planning your Morning Time. In addition to all of our traditional school activities, most of us want to incorporate the beauty and meaning of the Christmas and Advent season into our Morning Time.
This takes extra planning and work and it can be tough to find the time. In order to make it a bit easier for you, we have gathered up some ideas to simplify your planning when it comes to your December Morning Time.

Do you tell yourself every year that you will plan ahead and do fun learning activities with your kids in December? That you will take a break from your regular lessons to fit in baking and a Christmas Around the World unit?
But then you end up doing none of those things because you just can’t fit it in or you don’t know what to do to make the month special.
Fear not! You can find time to share that which is true, good and beautiful with your children through your December Morning Basket.
