1. Muffin Tin Lunches
When asked by other kids why they like being homeschooled, one of the first things my kids say is “because we get awesome muffin tin lunches”!
2. Field Trips
Field trips are always fun!
3. Annual Homeschool Track Meet
4. Sensory Bins
These have been such an incredible addition to our homeschool this year. For our kids with sensory differences, they have been especially helpful, but they are a highlight for all the kids. I add all of their favourite sensory bins to one post for easy reference if you are looking for ideas.
5. Body Movement Breaks
I find the kids learn best when they have some movement moments dispersed through our learning time, so I have them take movement breaks. Their favourites are the trampoline and the parachute. If you are interested in the concept of brain breaks and getting some fantastic ideas, I would highly recommend The Ultimate Guide to Brain Breaks.
There are so many wonderful opportunities for homeschool activities in our community offered during the day such as homeschool art classes, gymnastics, swimming, skiing.
7. Family Fun Night
Our themed Family Fun Nights that often incorporate something we are learning about, such as Titanic, are a huge hit!
8. Reading anywhere and everywhere
9. Math…this answer only came from Snuggle Puppy and for the record, the other kids do not agree!
