Put the fun back into your homeschool!

Home >> Home School Ideas >> Fun Homeschooling

Homeschooling doesn't have to be a drag. If you feel like screaming at your curriculum, and the kids are bored to tears - it is time to get creative!

No one is going to learn well when they are fed up and miserable. You owe it to yourself and your family to switch things up a little and have some fun.

It is easy to have fun when you are homeschooling - but it can be hard to think of good ideas when things are getting you down. That is what this page is for :)

Let me share with you ten fantastic ideas to get your creative juices flowing again!

  • Do some strewing. Strewing is a very clever way of opening up your homeschool to more possibilities - and helps your children become more self-sufficient about learning. Find out more about Strewing.
  • Try lapbooking. Lapbooks are a great way of learning - and can be adapted to fit your current curriculum. Give Lapbooking a try.
  • Take advantage of Field Trips. Field trips are perfect for giving everyone a break - and getting a fresh perspective on what you are learning. Get my Tips for homeschooling field trips.
  • Deschool. If you have all really had enough, you may need to take some time to deschool and rediscover your love of learning. As one of my readers says - Even Homeschoolers may need to deschool.
  • Learn to ignite a love of learning in your children. Take some time to figure out how to help your children love learning. Learn how to homeschool this way in 3 easy steps.
  • Check your schedule. Are you doing too much? Homeschool doesn't have to take all day. Even one hour of homeschooling can be effective.
  • Avoid Burnout. It isn't much fun homeschooling when everyone is burnt out. Beat homeschool burnout to give yourself a fighting chance.
  • Follow your child's interests. Children soak up information about the things they are interested in. Why not ask them what they want to learn about?
  • Adapt to your homeschool learning styles. Adapting to your childs learning style will help - but don't forget to take YOUR homeschooling styles into account too.
