As a year round homeschooler your kids’ birthdays will at some point, and more often than not, fall on a school day. This is a great opportunity for you to make their birthday a bit more special and different than that of other children.

One of my kids’ favorite things about following a year round homeschooling schedule is that they always get their birthdays off from school. It seems really simple, but it means a lot to them every year. We don’t do anything outlandish to celebrate their birthdays, but they enjoy the fact that no matter what day their birthday falls on they will have the day off from school.

Sometimes it is the simplest things that we do that makes a huge difference in our child’s day. By giving them their birthday off from homeschooling, we’ll be encouraging a positive homeschool experience because we’re showing that they are more important than a day of schoolwork.

If your child likes to be involved in some of the activities behind their birthday festivities, there are easy ways to add everyday homeschool moments without them really even noticing! During these times you’ll also be having one-on-one time with them and building a stronger relationship too.

  • Birthday Cake – Math and Science
  • Birthday Party Invitations – Language Arts and Penmanship
  • Birthday Party Games – Science, Arts & Craft, etc. (Depending on games selected)

These are just a few options to integrate a bit of homeschooling on your child’s birthday, if you so choose. Whether you choose to take the entire day off from homeschooling or add in a bit of learning with on-on-one time, you’ll be making their birthday special!
