Grab Bags or Lucky Dips.

Meredith has shared her Grab Bag day in homeschooling - a super alternative to checklists in the homeschool.

Cay has shared her simple version of Grab Bag Day, for Advent.

I have been inspired.

Grab Bags remind me of Lucky Dips - you never know what you may receive.

This evening, after Mass and Youth Group supper, I have made a Lucky Dip bag for the week - a busy week for me work wise and so a good week for a Lucky Dip/Grab Bag for Anthony and Thomas.

Some of our Lucky Dip activities -

Do Maths and Kumon

Work on books project

French or Latin


Type a bio of one of the November saints and include a pic.

Music practice

Don’t forget your chores!

Make Advent wreath

What are your goals? Pick one to work towards this week.

Your reading – what are you reading this week?


Cooking – try a new recipe or make an old favourite

Sort through the toy cupboard and toy boxes until you find an old toy or game that seems new. Have a game!

Your Lucky Dip choice…..

I'll let you know how it goes....

Yesterday, the younger two really got into it - thought it was fun to have a bag with choices of things to do. I decorated the bag using an old Xmas card. I think there was a novelty factor - but what I like about unschoolishness is the fun and novelty factor, sometimes.Do something different! :-)
