Crafts to Do at Home (For the Non-crafty Mom)
That is when I try to channel my inner Pinterest. “Try” is the key word. I cannot sew. I cannot draw. But if my child is happy and engaged for a long period of time (30 minutes is a winner), I call craft time a success! Here are easy activities and crafts to do at home that you can check out with your family.

7 Creative Tips to Homeschooling with Confidence
For many parents who set out on the journey of homeschooling, you may be surprised to know that they really aren’t sure how things will go when they first start. Sure, they read the books and ask other parents the how-to questions, but there is always that bit of uncertainty that gives an uneasiness. Confidence in homeschooling comes from recognizing and holding on to some key things as you grow alongside your children in your homeschooling journey. Here are 7 tips that you can remember to help build your confidence.
Instructions from Dad – A Father’s Day Craft with Lego
The Oxford Dictionary describes the definition of instruction as detailed information that tells you how something should be done, operated, or assembled. To give instruction is to give direction. A father’s role is to give instruction to his children. He can teach them skills on how to carry on a trade or how to take care of a family when they are older. He becomes a model to his children on how to behave in certain situations.
The Benefits of Cursive Handwriting
The style of writing with pen or pencil in which all the letters in a word are connected is called cursive, longhand, script, or penmanship. Every person develops their own, unique way of forming letters even if they were taught by the same person using the same alphabet style. The benefits of penmanship range from practical life applications to artistic endeavors. The writer can take time to form thoughts, resulting in an increased range of vocabulary and higher quality, well-thought-out writing.
Use a Homeschool Magazine for Learning and Teaching
I seem to look for the most out-of-the-box ways to teach my kids. They still do some bookwork style learning in a couple of subjects where they just go through the course, but overall, I like to get very eclectic in our approach to education. One of the more uncommon ways I have been approaching some subjects is using a homeschool magazine. I use both the digital and print issues for inspiration and direct resource material.
