A Simple Walk around the Block
We did a rotating family walk for the first time back in December.
I’m hoping to make it a weekly thing this year.
I took each kid for a walk around the block. Each conversation was different & and each kid lit up as I told each one about why I’m thankful God made me their mama.
Our Favorite Homeschool Music Programs
- Music in our Homeschool – I recommend the membership which is only open twice a year!
- Busy Kids Do Piano & Busy Moms Do Piano – you can get a free course to try out!!
We also love our Gathering Playlists that correspond to the Gathering Placemats. My kids ask for the playlists every morning!
Homeschool Mom Confession:
I struggle with arts & crafts. They seem like SO much to add to our days.
BUT… when I actually muster the courage to dive in, it always makes the kids happy and it isn’t as bad as I thought it would be in terms of mess (or even time spent).
Here are my tips for arts & crafts in homeschool:
📅 Put it on the calendar
🧱 Limit the space where the mess can happen (we use a washable vinyl shower curtain)
🧼 Have the kids help clean up afterward
⏲️ Set a time limit (one hour, one-half hour should be plenty)
My favorite place to find no-fuss arts & crafts ideas:
