As homeschool moms, it is so easy to get wrapped up in the “we have to get the textbooks done!” mentality that we can forget about all the other ways to incorporate learning into our homeschool day.

I decided to compile a list of “non-worksheet” homeschool activities to round out your homeschool day. This list was as much for me as it is for you because I get stuck in the same rut! But, some of the best learning is done and the best memories are made when we put down the text books and have some real fun! Let’s go!

Workbooks and textbooks are an important part of homeschooling, sure, but they aren’t meant to be ALL of homeschooling. Get out and have some fun!
