Ultimate Checklists for April Freebie

Happy April! Can you believe April is here already? April is full of fun activities and a special holiday for Christians. It is when we celebrate Easter. There are lots of thing to talk about with your family and Easter activities to plan. Our Ultimate Checklists for April can help you out greatly with planning your activities and traditions this month.

April ultimate lists text with phpto of easter basket with painted eggs.

How do you celebrate Easter with your family? Do you get up early on Sunday morning and do the Easter bunny and fun Easter egg hunts? Do you dress up for church in fancy Easter clothes? Is your focus solely on the Christian aspect of the life, death and glorious resurrection of Jesus?

Maybe you do both and celebrate with fun, kid friendly family traditions as well as religious traditions. Whatever you observe, there is a lot to plan and do this month.

Our family has never done the “easter bunny”, but we do have a tradition of doing Easter baskets. I will fill them with traditional candy treats. I also like to include some fun little special trinkets, a cute spring themed stuffed animal and usually a cross bookmark, and a new devotional.

We dress up for church though, now that my children are much older they don’t appreciate me dressing them in matching clothes anymore. As long as we can attend church together as a family that’s all I care about now.

After church, we have a nice Easter lunch together with ham and southern sides. We always like to invite friends that don’t have a place to go and celebrate Easter with them too. This is a great way to share the love of Jesus with others.

Easter Holiday Planning

If you have younger kids you know there are quite a few things that you may need to plan out. You won’t want to forget the Easter gifts, and planning outfits for church.

Then there are the Easter egg hunts. If you are in a homeschool group or play group you may have an egg hunt to attend. You won’t want to forget to get candies, stickers, treats and plastic eggs before they are sold out in the stores. I hate waiting last minute and scrambling the night before an egg hunt to stuff all the eggs. Especially if you have multiple children, this can take a while.

You may want to look for egg hunts in your neighborhood or attend one at a church. Make sure you get those on the calendar, because those dates creep up fast!

If you are hosting an Easter lunch you may want to do your grocery shopping early to make sure that items you need don’t run out with the shortages we have been seeing.

There is a lot to remember and plan out, and that’s why this month’s April Ultimate Checklist includes a lot of Easter planning so you don’t forget!

What is included in the April Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has 54 pages of planning help devoted to Easter and spring time activities. We love the checklists that are all ready for you so you don’t have to think about what you need to do. Of course, there are still the blank ones for those that like to plan everything out themselves and customize the lists for their families.

Ultimate Checklists – March Freebie

Can you believe that March is already here? I am blown away how quickly the seasons change. It seems like we were just planning for Christmas, and now here we are almost into the spring season.

Ultimate Checklists March

March is full of so many busy activities, as well as fun opportunities for your family. There are tax papers to gather up and last minute paperwork to file. The first day of spring is on March 20th. With springtime, comes new growth, so if you garden you will be working on your spring garden. Spring cleaning usually happens in March as well. There is always so much to do this month.

March Activities and Holidays

That is the focus that you are going to see in this month’s subscriber freebie Ultimate Checklists.  Felice has some of the most wonderful ideas for help, organization and planning for all these activities and holidays.

Lent begins on March 2nd. This is the 40 days to prepare our hearts before Easter with fasting and prayer. Many families use this time to fast or abstain from a specific activity to remember how Jesus spent 40 days in the desert before his ministry. This is a great time to add daily Bible readings as a family. You may want to plan for that, so you don’t forget your goals for the next 40 days. The blank Lent checklist gives you plenty of time to brain storm ideas and to help keep everyone on track.

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th. As homeschool parents, we always like to turn holidays into educational learning opportunities. You are going to enjoy the Discover St. Patrick Mini Research Unit Study with questions to research and fill out. That is also included in this freebie.

Easter will be here before you know it, so March is the perfect time to start some Easter preparations. Yes, there is even a checklist for that!

Let’s take a look at what’s inside this month’s checklist:

Since March is such a busy month, this month’s checklist includes lots of lists and activities to help keep you organized. There are fun March ideas and activities for kids as well as Spring Cleaning lists broken down by categories. These lists will help to take things one step at a time. You can work on dejunking a room, cleaning a closet, and there is even a list for organizing your garage.

We also love the blank lists that you can use to create your very  own customized lists.

February Checklist Freebie

I can’t believe that February is almost here. The new year is in full swing and this is the time where we continue to work on our goals and resolutions and see what is working for our families. There are also some fun things that are coming up in the month of February so some February checklists will help you keep all the things organized.

February Checklist Freebie

We hope you are enjoying our new Ultimate Checklists. They sure help you think through the things that you need to tackle and help you to stay on track. What are the important things on your list this month? Some things may include grocery shopping  days, mega-cooking days, or doctor appointments.

They will help you schedule weekly cleaning days or laundry days. How about school days, field trips, and all the extra curricular activities to keep track of. Keeping a monthly calendar for family events will help!

Valentine’s Day With Family

The most notable date of the calendar in Feburary is the 14th which centers around Valentine’s Day.  In the commercialism of the world this always revolves around flowers, candy, cards and balloons.

Some families ignore this day completely, while others enjoy making it a special day of love for their children an their spouse. Do you have plans to go out to dinner with your loved ones or do you prefer to have a special dinner and desserts at home with your whole family?

We have always enjoyed celebrating together as a family and having a fancy dinner and heart shaped desserts. One year we had a Beauty and the Beast themed dinner and we made some entrees from the Be Our Guest scene in the movie and the youngest dressed up as Belle.  This year my girls want to do a Lady and the Tramp themed dinner complete with giant meatballs, long skinny breadsticks.

These detailed dinners take quite a bit of planning to make sure that all the fine details are taken care of. From recipes, to ingredients, shopping lists and decorations there are a lot of things to keep track. Checklists are such a great help!

What is inside this month’s Ultimate List freebie?

This month’s Ultimate List includes many lists and activities to make all of your February family events extra special. There are even blank forms for you to fill out for your own customized lists.

Teaching Your Kids How to Have Faith – Free Character Planner

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ~ Hebrews 11:1. This is one of my favorite Bible verses, but how do we explain and teach faith to our children and help them to grasp the concept?

free character planner

Just as Hebrews says, faith is the substance of something that is hoped for. Faith and hope go hand in hand. Faith gives us the ability to worry less and to hope and know with our hearts that God will come through for us. It may not be as we thought, but it will happen somehow.

How to encourage faith

Faith can be difficult for some children to grasp. Others are private with their beliefs and may not talk about their faith often. We can teach our children about faith by talking openly about our faith in our homes. What is it that you hope for? Is it something that you can not do on your own? Talk about this with your family.

Faith is believing that something will happen that we can’t even see or begin to understand. It could be one of those prayer requests that may sit on your prayer list for a while. Yet when it does happen, a good job for a family member, a gift of money when things are tight, a cure to an illness that seems hopeless, a good grade in a hard math class, those things help to strengthen our faith and the faith of our children.

Another way to teach our children about the character trait of faith is with this month’s character planner. These are free for subscribers each month and they teach you how to plan a month long study on the specific character trait.

Free Faith Character Study Planner Printable Pack

This Character Counts planner will show you how to plan out a month long study on the character trait of Faith. These planners are organized for you and are always open and go. It is also customizable, which means you can pick and choose what you would like to print out and use for your family. They are not dated so you can use them anytime in the year.

We store ours in a character training binder. These are great if you have a certain issue that needs to be focused on in your family. Then you can pull them out and work on that trait as needed. Many families enjoying using these in a daily morning time in their homeschool or as a family Bible Study.

Our planners have been designed to be simple and fun, with activities for your entire family to participate in together.

FREE Creativity Character Counts Study

When you think of good character you may not think of creativity as a character trait. Many people say that they aren’t creative, or that they don’t have a crafty bone in their body. Being creative isn’t always about being artistic or crafty. It is being able to think outside of the box, to solve problems and address things in creative ways when the need arises. It is a practical life skill that can be a lot of fun to work on with your children.

Character Counts Creativity Planner Text with image of paint roller and leaves.

 

Creativity is problem solving:

Having creativity and being creative is a way to to teach your kids how to problem solve. This can come in handy with everyday life activities.

Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut with dinner and meals? Ask your children what they would like to eat, if they want to start helping meal plan and see what they come up with. You may have one child that is very organized and wants to write out a plan and prepare a grocery list. While another child may want to make a contest or cooking game out of it. Either way your dinner will be planned and that tackles one problem.

You can do the same thing with birthdays. Your whole family can work together to come up with some creative ideas to celebrate birthdays in a fun and unique way. Maybe your schedules are all over the place and you can’t celebrate it on the day. You will want to think of ways to pick a special time and place to celebrate. How fun would it be to include the whole family in celebrating with one another?

Are you sick of the same chore routine? You can also tackle this in a creative way when you put your minds together to come up with creative solutions to getting the house clean in a flash.

There are many everyday things that arise, that can use some creative thinking to make them easier and more doable to running a home. Some people are more creative than others. That’s why I enjoy these planners so much, because Felice gives tons of suggestions on how to teach the character trait in ways that involve the whole family.

Teach your kids how to be problem solvers with this month’s free printable pack:

This Character Counts planner will show you how to plan out a month long study on the character trait of Creativity.  These planner are organized for you and open and go.

FREE Character Counts: Boldness Character Study Planner

What is boldness? It is power over fear. It is being brave and bold enough to stand up for what is right and just. As homeschoolers and as Christians, we are already different in this world. It is important now more than ever to teach our children to take a stand that is counter culture. That isn’t an easy task, and can be quite scary if you have a child that is shy, and not normally bold. This is why I am excited to share with you about this month’s character study.

 

This month’s subscriber freebie is on the character trait of Boldness.

Being bold can come very easily to some children, and not so easily to others. It is important to teach our children to be bold, yet still be respectful. To be bold without being over the top, and to be bold when you are nervous and shy. To learn to decipher when you need to stand up for something that is important. Some children have no problem being bold. Others would rather be invisible then jump up and make a statement or make themselves known in a tough situation. This is where teaching bravery comes in as well.

It is quite the balance to teach this to different personality types. In this planner there are helpful tips, suggestions and encouragement to teach your children how to practice being bold. I love how Felice breaks down the character trait in easy to understand terms. She always follows it with examples and explanations and gives you practical suggestions and applies them to the entire family. You will love all the extra pages and goal sheets and there are even motivational posters with scriptures to hang in your home.

Why you will love our Character Counts Planners:

You are going to love our Character Counts planners because all of the work of planning out a character study is done for you! They will help you to plan out a 4-week study on the specific character trait for that month. This month you will teach on the character trait of Boldness.

They are also customizable so you can pick and choose what you would like to print out from the planner. There are lots of pages to choose from. Maybe you have a child that doesn’t like to write, but enjoys looking at posters. You could print out the motivational posters and Bible verses on self-control. Other children may enjoy deep thoughts, and journaling through what they are working on.

Our planners are not dated and can be used  anytime of the year.  Many families like to create a character training binder to keep them in. Do you enjoy morning time in your homeschool?  Character training is a great addition to a family morning or Bible time.

FREE Character Counts: Self-Control Character Study Planner

Does anyone else feel like they are living in an out of control world? So many changes, so many unknowns, and things to worry about. Just turn on the news, listen to talk radio, or spend more than a few minutes on social media. Your head will spin with things that can cause stress and emotional outbursts. It takes patience to sit back and trust God. To think before you speak, or type frantically on your keyboard. It takes extreme self control most days.

In life there are many ups and downs and there are things that happen that are out of our control. We have seen this in our own world in just one short year. It sure has been difficult to have no control over what is going on and to just sit and wait on God’s timing. It is not easy to model to our children. One thing we can do is to recognize that we are not able to control what happens in our world. That we can not control what others say or think, but we can control our own feelings.

We can use these tough times to teach our children that having self control is a key to a happy life. If we model this behavior for our children and talk openly to them about controlling their emotions, you will see great improvement in not only yourself, and your children, but your entire family. A great way to do this is by doing a character study with your children. We offer a FREE Character Study planner each month to our email subscribers. I love how timely these are. Each month, when a new study comes out, it seems to fit perfectly with what is going on in our lives and the lives of our children.

This month’s subscriber freebie is on the character trait of self-control.

Why our Character Counts Planners are special:

Our Character Counts planners are special because all of the work of planning out a character study is done for you!

FREE Character Counts: Tolerance Character Study Planner

We are living in some crazy times right now. It is important to teach our children to be respectful, polite, compassionate and understanding. But what about tolerance? Tolerance today seems to be skewed. If you think a certain way that goes along with the mainstream and social media, then everyone is tolerant. But if you don’t you are canceled, hence the name “cancel culture.”

The big question is how do you do this in the world in which we live in today and still retain your perspective? How can you be tolerant while standing strong in your beliefs?

This month’s subscriber freebie is on the theme of Tolerance:

This is a pretty deep topic, but it is an important one. How do we teach our children to be loving, care about others, be compassionate, stick to their beliefs and have a good moral compass—all while being tolerant? Like we have discussed in past character studies it starts inside your own family unit. With typical day-to-day situations your children will learn to be tolerant of a family member that has an annoying habit or attitude. We can correct them when we see behaviors pop up that show them being impatient in their reactions to a sibling or friend.

Tolerance also has to do with realizing that everyone is different. Some people do not think or believe the same way as your own family does. This handy guide will give you examples of how to practice the qualities you’d like to work on with your children in your own home.

What is in this month’s character planner?

Our Character Counts planners will help you to plan out a 4-week study on the specific character trait for that month. This month is on the topic of Tolerance. Our planners are always open and go, so that work of planning is done for you. They are also customizable so you can pick and choose what you would like to use from the planner printables. The planners are not dated and can be used  anytime of the year. We like to store ours in a character training binder broken down by theme. Character training is a great addition to a family morning or Bible time in your homeschool. The activities are good for all ages in your family, and parents too!

Let’s take a look at what’s inside:

  • Character Quality Family Checklist Worksheet
  • 4 Week Study on Tolerance vs. Intolerance

More help on teaching tolerance:

If we teach our children values and teach them to be tolerant of others who may not agree with us, where does that get us? In this volatile culture do we need to teach our children to compromise their beliefs? The word tolerant means to put up with in some way. To put up with noise, or hardship, or annoying people. But does it mean that we have to be accepting of the beliefs of others? How do we educate our children in our beliefs if we have parameters of what we can and can’t say? In this episode, Felice tackles this question with some ways to begin the journey into our uncharted world.

Teaching Tolerance Without Compromising Your Beliefs

Teaching Tolerance | Teaching tolerance is possible without selling your soul. How do we educate our children in our beliefs if we have parameters of what we can and can’t say?

FREE Character Counts: Diligence Planner

Happy New Year! We have made it through 2020 and entered a new year! With a new year comes goals, dreams and plans. We all like to sit down and dream with our spouse, and with our families to plan. Especially after this past year we have had, it is a nice break to think of a better future. It is important to sit down and discuss or write out what we want to achieve in a new year. It is a whole different thing to make those goals a reality. This is where diligence comes in.

This month’s subscriber freebie is on the theme of Diligence.

A diligent person is one who may come across as a go-getter. They set their sites on something that they want to accomplish and they don’t stop until they achieve their goal. Then there are those people who look back on regret because they can never follow through on things. They start something and never have a way to accomplish it, or it gets hard and they just give up.

It is not an easy thing to stick to something and follow through. We see this a lot with New Year resolutions and goals. If you don’t have a plan, then you plan to fail. And it happens every time. Did you know that diligence can be practiced and taught?

This is actually a good character trait that can be worked on. In today’s society it can be hard to push through and not get lazy. There are so many things that make life easy, like technology, gadgets, different devices. Yet it is important to teach our children to follow through, and be true to their word. This is why teaching diligence is so important! When you are diligent, you have a better chance at succeeding and completing your goals!

This character study is perfect for a new year with goal setting. It will give you tips and suggestions on how to practice being diligent in your home. There are ideas and helps for how to follow through on simple tasks to complete goals, and resolutions. Felice always has some great, practical ideas to work on things together as a family.

What is in this month’s planner?

Our Character Counts planners will guide you in planning out a 4-week study on the specific character trait for that month. So this month is on the theme of Diligence. Our planners are always open and go. So all of the hard work of planning is done for you. They are also customizable so you can pick and choose what you would like to use from the planner printables.
