One of the biggest ways to encourage growth in your homeschool is to be sure you add fun! No matter what subject you are studying with your children, there are ways to add fun learning to it!
Our children’s interest in learning will greatly increase if we do more than just give them a textbook to read and questions to answer.
There are free printables to be found for almost every topic or subject that your children are learning about. There are countless free printable options for you to choose from; notebook pages, math activities, coloring pages, copywork pages and much more! You’ll find my favorite free printable creators in my frugal homeschool resources post here. If you’re heading to a field trip you can use them to prepare them for the learning ahead and then on the way home they can record what they’ve learned! Free printables are a great way to add fun to your homeschool!

Many children are visual and auditory learners and when you utilize movies, You Tube Videos, audio books, CDs or podcasts, your children will have fun learning using media in your homeschool! No matter what subject you’re learning about there is some type of media resource that you can use in your homeschool!
Crafts and Experiments
Kids love hands-on learning! The more opportunities that we give them to create or explore the subjects and topics that they’re learning about in our homeschool, the more they will understand, process and want to learn more! Crafts and experiments can be used for each subject or topic that you’re learning about in your homeschool! Visit our Science Experiments and Kids Crafts Pinterest boards for great ideas!

Take Your School Outside
Sometimes just a change of scenery adds fun to your homeschool day! Whether it be just laying a blanket out on the grass and taking your lessons with you or taking the day off from lessons and exploring the world around you, fun learning can be found outside the walls of our home!
