Do you ever get to December and not know how to homeschool during the holidays? Or want to spend extra time on Christmas and the Savior, and still find a way to do “school?” And how do you bring a Christian focus into your schoolwork?

If you’ve ever wondered about any of these questions, then you are not alone! I designed this 25-lesson curriculum to fill the first 25 days of December. Each lesson teaches a science concept and ties into an event or doctrine from the Savior’s life!

Each day also includes a discussion/journal prompt, so you can use it as a writing exercise too! Finally, there are coloring-book style ornaments that correspond to each lesson. I originally made these so my preschoolers could join us during the lesson, but my older kids actually enjoyed them too! It turns out that coloring is fun for everyone!

"An Experiment to Remember" is a kid's advent calendar that uses simple, exciting science experiments as object lessons to teach about the Jesus. I hope you love them!

We used this curriculum last year in place of all our normal lessons except for math and reading. There are elements of science, history, social studies, and writing in An Experiment to Remember, so it is the perfect way to simplify school work!

How to you use An Experiment to Remember?

There are literally dozens of different ways to make this curriculum work for you! Here are my suggestions!

Print the ebook

If you have more than one kid, print additional ornament sets for each child The lessons are basically scripted so once your supplies are ready, the lessons can be “open and go!”

Gather all the supplies for the month

Put them in a big tote bin or laundry basket so they are in one spot. This makes it easier to pick up a lesson and get started without a lot of set-up time each day.  Remember to grab coloring supplies for the ornaments too. My girls used different coloring supplies almost each day: some days they painted, other days they used crayons, pencils, markers, or even different combinations of them! Use whatever you’re comfortable with!

Daily Lessons

Each day, pull out one lesson and read through it with your kids. Do the science experiment. Discuss or journal the question. Color the paper ornament. That’s it!

More Ideas

  • Stick each page of the curriculum in a sheet protector and let your kiddos choose the order to do them!
  • Roll each page up like a scroll, tie it with a ribbon, and randomly pull one out each day!
  • Save the curriculum for Easter next year!

Or use the curriculum any other way you want!

You can skip the experiment or the coloring if your time is tight or your kids need to a day to wrap presents…the lessons are independent, and do not need to be done in any order!
