St Aiden’s Homeschool, New Activities, Subscriber Exclusive

Time for a quick website update.  Again I’ll make it very brief with links to the pages that have been updated with new activities, printables and information.

Our Solar System pages see new activity books and info for each of our planets, as well as links ot other really great resources.
We are still finding our way into Spring in the Southern Hemisphere and have added yet more printable activities to our Spring pages.
Johnny Appleseed’s birthday is celebrated on 26 September, and for this event we have lots of Apple Activities, lesson plans, the full story of John Appleseed, in text and audio, available for you to download.
Similarly our Science pages have some great new printables, downloads and exciting experiements for little people.
Volcanoes is an ongoing project with some great printables for download.
There are activities for all age groups.  Our constantly updated educators’ calendar of historical events, celebrations and occasions provides lesson plans & activities/resources per month.  Since new events are discovered or come across regularly this is and will remain a work in progress 🙂
Subscriber’s Exclusive Download – Value $9.95

Halloween is just over a month away and while we have literally dozens of printables available on the Halloween pages, one of our titles is not readily available from the site.  As a thank you for your support I would like to offer this 117 Page Halloween Activity Ebook to you as a free download from my Publisher’s website. (The download link will come via your email inbox).  This product will only be available for free download for the next week so please download asap if you intend to do that.
Included are Halloween themed phonics, numbers and counting, lacing, colouring, finger plays and more. Ideally suited for younger children.  Enjoy 🙂
Celebrate the annual Fright Night with these fun (and not so scary) ideas, especially for young children. There are even more great fun ideas here.

1. Try your hand at face painting, or allow your children to paint their own faces with washable face paints.

2. Make your own goodie bags. Set out some brown paper bags with the standard art supplies or embellish an old pillowcase with fabric paints. You can even spring for blank canvas baggies from your local discount store or craft store without spending a lot.

3. Tie dye some T shirts or socks using orange and black fabric dyes.

4. Make ghosts. Fold a piece of black construction paper in half and let your child squirt white paint inside. Squish the paint, let dry, then embellish the white ghost with paints, markers and other craft supplies.

5. Watch a Halloween movie. Make popcorn, cuddle up together in blankets, and take in some spooky cinematic sights. Harry Potter, Dracula, or Ghostbusters are great choices. For younger children, choose Heffalump Halloween, starring Winnie the Pooh or The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad by Disney Classics.

6. Eat creepy cuisine. Cut sandwiches or tortillas into Halloween shapes with cookie cutters. Create a ghoulish look with almost anything by mixing in a little green or red food coloring.

7. Play “Guess How Many Pumpkin Seeds.” Each family member or party guest gets to take turns guessing how many pumpkin seeds are in a jar. The winner gets a prize.

During this time I urge parents and caregivers of children to exercise extreme caution, please take a moment to read Halloween Safety for Children.
With Blessings for your Educational Journey
