First Grade Holidays & Seasons Activities

Throughout the year there are many reasons to celebrate. From the changing of seasons to national and religious holidays, we have all kinds of ideas that will help your young learner get in a celebratory mood. While creating, gaming, and crafting kids will learn more about the holidays and the times of year that have cultural significance. Our holiday activities are also a great way to introduce your child to more obscure holidays as well as holidays that are widely celebrated around the world.
