One of the benefits of a homeschooling routine is the flexibility. During holiday seasons, we can slow down and have lots of fun with learning about holidays in our homeschool.
We can focus on hands on crafts, holiday themed books, special printables and more.
Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite resources I’ve collected for homeschooling through holidays with my Pinterest boards.
St Patrick’s Day Homeschooling
As an Irish Catholic family, Saint Patrick’s Day is a BIG deal around here! We study Saint Patrick as well as Irish tradition, and have loads of fun with shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows and more!
What will we be doing this year?
- Irish Flag Cookies
- Borax Crystal Shamrocks for science
- Reading Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland.

We celebrate Easter as a religious holiday primarily, but will also do Easter Egg Hunts and bunny crafts, too. Some of my favorites on this board?
- Candy Free Ideas for an Easter Basket

For these patriotic holidays, we use one board for resources and crafts to try at home.
