With the festive season just around the corner (well not actually, but what better time to talk about it?), I thought it only fitting that I give you some really fun ideas so you can start preparing and get all your kids appreciating music this Christmas season. 


Let’s get started. 


Live Performances

Christmas is a time that many organizations host events like carols by candlelight and Christmas musicals and much more. 

So why not think ahead? Look out for such events in your local community, look for events that are really fun yet budget friendly and go watch. 

Your kids will love you for giving them the opportunity to experience music in person. 



Yes, get a group of kids together, learn to sing carols and go carolling around the neighbourhood. 

Can you imagine a better way to spread cheer around the neighbourhood?

Alternatively you can also organize virtual carols and stream it to friends and family across the country and even bring together carollers from around the country. 

Can you think of anything more fun?


Learning About A Carol

Yes, select a carol and learn all about it? 

Learn about the composer, the era he lived in, the instruments played in the carol and so on. 

Want to know more about how you can do this? 

Download the printable I have made available and start learning about While Shepherds Watched Their Flock By Night. 

The printable has activities for kids of all ages. 


Watching A Christmas Ballet

Think the Nutcracker. 

Why not take your kids to watch a Christmas ballet? 


Multi Cultural Christmas Activities

Why not blend geography, cultural studies and music together?

Want to know more about how you can do that? Read my post 5 ‘Innovative’ Ways To Blend Music With Other Subjects Learned In The Homeschool. 

Learn about Christmas traditions in different countries, my unit study Carolling Around The World, will help your kids learn about Christmas traditions and music in different parts of the world and you can get a FREE preview of one of the units by clicking here. 


Historic Village Visits

Take your kids to visit a historic village and learn about Christmas traditions of the past. 

Most historic villages will also include a live performance of carols from the era. 

So what better field trip for this time of the year?


Compare How Christmas Is Celebrated Around The World

Select two countries of choice and compare and contrast how Christmas is celebrated in both countries in terms of the traditions, the carols, the greetings, the food and much more. 

Take a look at the FREE preview unit I have made available for my unit study Carolling Around The World, which teaches your kids about different Christmas traditions as well as Christmas Carols from around the world. 


Learn Carols From Different Countries

Yes, this is similar to the previous ideas. 

Pick a few countries of choice and research the different Christmas carols that originated from those countries. 

Again, take a look at my FREE preview for Carolling Around The World. 


Composer Studies

Select a Christmas carol and research about the composer, his/her background, the musical instrument he/she played, the musical era he/she lived in and much more. 

Don’t forget to download the printable I made available so your children can learn all about While Shepherds Watched Their Flock By Night and the composer Nahum Tate.


Compose Your Own Christmas Carols

Are your kids good at writing poetry? 

Why not ask them to compose their own Christmas carol? 

Write a poem, and put a tune to it. 

It’s as simple as that. 

Don’t know how to play an instrument or don’t have an instrument at home? 

No worries. Simply use a software like Garage Band. 


Put Together A Christmas Pageant

Can you think of anything more fun than this? 

Put together an entire Christmas pageant complete with music and a storyline. 

It doesn’t have to be totally perfect nor totally original, it just needs to be fun. 


So what do you think? 

Can you implement these ideas in your homeschool this festive season?

Which idea will you implement first?
