Come back in time with us to the Colonial days and see what life was like for non-wealthy Colonial families.
Discover a world without TV, radio, electricity, flush toilets, or central heating. Copy cursive text and do our suggested activities to experience a world that revolves around nature, growing things, hard work, rural living, and simple pleasures.
We have pioneered a new concept in penmanship, with our A-Z History Unit Study Penmanship Series, which includes well-researched history content along with ideas and activities to help make history come alive for your children.
This book includes
5 recipes for an authentic Colonial meal,
a Colonial paper doll with costumes,
Colonial crafts to make,
activity ideas for your family to enjoy, either as a family or with your homeschool support group. (Ideas for both contexts are provided.)
The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.
You’ve never seen anything like this BIG Christmas book for kids before!
It has 50 respectful coloring pages of people in the Victorian era, tastefully dressed, Christmas ornaments and celebration, nature, and the Nativity story, plus 27 pages of cut & paste crafts, ready to print, and 10 pages of puzzles and word games. This will keep your kids occupied during your busy holiday preparations.
This book also contains 5 pages of recipes for hot drink mixes and a healthy soup mix for gift giving, plum pudding, gingerbread, sugar cookies, and frosting (including how to make natural colored frosting without artificial colors or flavors), plus frosting tips and 15 cookie shapes to cut out. Plus instructions for making mittens and warm neck scarves as Christmas gifts for the needy.
This book is written from a Christian perspective, with over 40 pages focusing on Jesus’ Birthday. We have 7 coloring pages of the Nativity story, a cut & paste angel activity, and angel and Nativity card making and ornament crafts. We share how kids can give presents to Jesus on His birthday. And we include Bible passages on giving, as well. (This section is also sold separately at a much lower price as It’s Jesus’ Birthday for those who wish to focus on the Nativity Story alone and not on the Victorian Era or lavish Christmas celebrations.)
The rest of the more than 150 pages are all about the Protestant origins of traditional Christmas celebrations, such as candles and Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands, bells and sleighs, stockings and presents. Plus we have a section on what life was like for Victorian boys and girls, and a section on outdoor winter fun and safety.
You will use this book year after year!
You may print copies of this book’s pages for members of your own household as often as you like. In addition, during the Christmas season you may choose 3 pages to share with all of your Christmas guests.
