Christmas Around the USA Review and Giveaway!!

I am so excited to be able to share this wonderful curriculum from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom!  Her Christmas Around the USA introduces and reviews the 50 states by sharing Christmas traditions and culture.  It is perfect for a winter homeschooling curriculum, a Christmas advent, a supplemental activity, or even a fun 50 states curriculum any time of the year!

I'll share more about the Christmas Around the USA {and the giveaway!} in just a moment.  First, I want to tell you a little about Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.  Her blog has tons if ideas for homeschooling families and for parents who are just looking to enrich their child's education with fun activities.  Her members-only website has over 100 printables (with themes like The Berenstain Bears, Thanksgiving, Fall, and many more) and is frequently updated.  This Christmas Around the USA was just added!  She could easily package the Christmas Around the USA unit as a book and sell it for $15.00, but instead she charges just $15.00 for lifetime access to the entire members-only website!  That includes the Christmas unit, all the printables that are currently up, and any that she adds in the future!

But now, on to the Christmas Around the USA curriculum!  This unit contains over 165 pages of fun-filled activities and information about each state at Christmas time.  Everyone has to learn the 50 states, and this makes it so much fun!  The unit begins with instructions to make this Christmas tree craft. As you go through the lessons, your child creates a paper ornament with every state to hang on the tree.

The unit also includes a "brick" suitcase, a card for Santa with "stamps" that you place from every state, a holiday card for each state, tons of wonderful information about each state, a variety of arts, crafts, and baking projects, and so much more!  There are even personal family traditions from individuals living in about half the states!

We're going to use this program for a huge "road trip" around the country in November and December.  It may even become an annual tradition--there is easily enough information in the curriculum to introduce new concepts each year while reviewing the states that we have learned in the past!  Check out this sample page from the curriculum with information about Texas:
