When you start homeschooling it’s easy to focus on curriculum. But once you settle in you’ll realise there are a LOT more hours left in the day to fill.
In fact, most of our time is NOT spent on bookwork. Most of it involves following interests, doing hands-on activities, and creating.
And these activities are usually educational, because virtually everything is!
Living is learning, and experimenting with a wide range of activities makes everyday life incredibly educational and turns learning into a lifestyle. Educating is MUCH easier that way.
These ideas will give you a great place to start planning and implementing some out-of-the-box activities for your kids.
And you never know – a major hobby or passion could result. But you’ll never know if you’ve got the next Olympic archery champion unless you get out the bow and arrows!
Don’t forget to include your kids in the decision making and planning – ownership promotes involvement.
