Study Unit: Roald Dahl’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Last year my children had watched most of the Roald Dahl movies available on the market, but we hadn’t read any of the books, so our Roald Dahl inspired arts and crafts were varied and mixed. Over the last few weeks we’ve been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, however, so all our activities the… Read more: Study Unit: Roald Dahl’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Activities – Chocolate Bath Salt

Chocolate Bubble Bath is such an easy win with the kids. As part of a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory day, it’s a perfect way to end the day too. Although you only add about 2 tablespoons of cocoa to your bath water, it’s more than enough to fill the bathroom with the aroma and… Read more: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Activities – Chocolate Bath Salt

Easy Paper Giant Candies For Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a superb theme to do with kids, but it does make for a pretty heavy sugar week! We are having a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ‘party’ in a couple of days, and rather than just having endless amounts of sweets to set the scene, I wanted décor that… Read more: Easy Paper Giant Candies For Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Activities – DIY Jazzies

I don’t know why, but as long as I can remember I’ve loved Jazzies. I really don’t know why – they are made from cheap chocolate, and full of Hundreds and Thousands (Nonpareils, to my American readers) that taste of nothing. When we decided to do Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for our home-ed Play… Read more: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Activities – DIY Jazzies

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory – Units of Measurement

There’s nothing like sweets to get a sweet-toothed person excited about learning something maths-ish, so as part of our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory week, I bought a mixed bag of candy – I wanted chocolates, but apparently we aren’t close enough to Halloween yet, so no one in my town sells the mixed bags… Read more: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory – Units of Measurement

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory – The Book Vs The Movie

It’s Roald Dahls’ birthday in a couple of weeks, so our home-ed theme to get us back into a learning routine now that summer is over, is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We are really easing into it since it’s important to me that at 5 & 3, the girls still have a lot of… Read more: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory – The Book Vs The Movie

Mamatography Week 15 & 16: Outdoors And Out

We’ve had a crazy busy few weeks, but it’s been fun. I’ve been looking after a friend’s children, my Ameli has been on holiday from preschool and we’ve just had a lot of fun, and  not a whole lot of time to write or blog. 96/365 – Garden Fun I’ve been working hard on getting the garden… Read more: Mamatography Week 15 & 16: Outdoors And Out

Foods, Activities and Crafts To Celebrate Roald Dahl Day

It’s Roald Dahl day on Friday 13 September, (being his birthday) and while I’ve left it a little late to read all of the books to Ameli – and to be honest she’s still a little young for them – she does love The Fantastic Mr Fox movie, and also Charlie and the Chocolate Factory….

Study Units

Below is a list of all the units we’ve done in our home learning journey. They are divided roughly by preschool or Early Readers (4 – 7) but there is some overlap. How we plan our home ed themes is probably a good place to start!   Preschool Activities: Body Integrity And Anatomy Disney Frozen Emergency… Read more: Study Units
