Positive Ways to Focus All That Holiday Energy
As the holidays approach, it feels like someone cranked up the energy level in our house. My boys get so excited about Christmas time and all that’s happening at the North Pole! It’s definitely one of our favorite holidays.
While I love all that excitement and enthusiasm, it can make it difficult to get my boys to sit down and focus on their homeschool work. Or anything not related to Christmas.
Instead of getting frustrated or giving up, I choose to use their interest in the holidays to my advantage. Although we enjoy an eclectic and relaxed approach to homeschooling, I still expect my boys to complete their assignments.
To make it easier and more enjoyable for all of us, I sprinkle a fun holiday twist on their homeschool assignments. Over the years, I’ve discovered that these small changes make a world of difference AND are positive ways to spark creativity.

Creative Ways to Boost the Fun with These Printable Prompts
Want to make sure these creative writing ideas and drawing prompts are fun for your kids? Here are a few tips and ideas:
- Start your Christmas fun by using the creative writing prompts as conversation starters or story starters. Chatting about the topics (and jotting down ideas) can help your kids brainstorm.
- Provide a variety of writing and coloring tools. My boys love to pull over our homeschool carts full of supplies, like:
- Cut the 10 holiday writing prompts (in color) into strips. Place in a stocking and have your kids randomly pick out a prompt to use that day.
- Play Christmas music in the background.
- Hang your students’ completed work around your classroom or homeschool space.
- Enjoy Christmas Fitness Prompts before, during, or after your holiday writing fun. These fitness prompts have holiday themes with excellent ways to get up and moving.
- As you get closer to Christmas Day, add different prompts with variations, like “What would be a modern way to decorate a gingerbread house?”, “How would the perfect Christmas tree look?”, and “What’s your favorite Christmas story and why?”
