Gift Ideas for Homeschoolers {Blogmas Day 5}

Today I thought I would share some gift ideas for homeschoolers. In case you aren’t a homeschooler yourself and you need some ideas on what to get a homeschooler in your life, OR maybe you are a homeschooler and someone needs an idea on what to get you and you’re having a hard time coming up with some ideas to share with them, then this gift guide is for you.

gift ideas for homeschoolers

So without further ado, here are some ideas for the homeschoolers in your life…

  1. Subscription services –  Tinker Crates, Letters From Afar, Magazines (National Geographic is a great one!), etc. This is the gift that keeps on giving!
  2. Books – I’ve never met a homeschooler that doesn’t like/need books. We are constantly buying books. Some great book ideas for homeschooling moms are: Homeschool Mom’s Bible, Teaching From Rest, and The Unhurried Homeschooler.
  3. SuppliesPens, Pencils, Markers, Scissors, etc. We go through a lot of supplies!
  4. Memberships – Zoo, Aquarium, Museums, etc.
  5. Tickets – Plays, concerts, sporting events, etc.
  6. Gift Certificates – Amazon, bookstores, Starbucks, etc. If you aren’t sure what they have, this is a great gift, so they can buy what they want/need.

I hope you find this list helpful.

Sam’s 13th Birthday

Earlier this month my oldest child, Samuel, turned 13 years old. It’s really hard to believe i have a teenager now.


He loves Nerf guns, so he requested a Nerf gun themed party.


We bought him a metal detector because he has been wanting one for awhile now, and since we now have the land we thought it was the perfect time.


He is such an awesome kid, i’m so glad God chose me to be his mama!

With Christmas under wraps, i thought it would be a good idea to share my top 10 favorite educational/learning toys my kids received this Christmas.

10 education gifts 2017

I just want to say this list has toys for pretty much every age range that we have in our family, from 1-12 years old.

So without further ado, and in no specific order, here is my list of top 10 favorite educational/learning toys…

1. Snap Circuits Jr. – This was a gift for my oldest son (12 years old), he loves it! I found it on Amazon.


2. Play & Explore Rocket – We got this for my 3 year old, but my 1 year old also loves it. You can find it at Lakeshore Learning.



3. Discovery Kids Magnetic Tiles– I found these at Walgreens for my 1 year old & 3 year old.


4. Tin Can Robot – I bought this on Amazon for my 3 older children.


5. Smart Robot – Also i bought this on Amazon, for my oldest son.


6. Potato Clock – Found this on Amazon, for my 3 oldest kids.


7. Don’t Let The Bugs Fall! Game – Another great purchase from Lakeshore Learning for my 3 year old. And it was on sale for under $10!


8. Enviro Battery – I got this on Amazon, once again for the 3 oldest kids.


9. Sharper Image Drone – My 2 oldest boys each got one of these from their uncle for Christmas, so i don’t know where he got them from. But this one on Amazon seems pretty close. I was hesitant to add this to my list, but my Hubby does feel like it is a good learning toy, so i added it to the list.


10. LEGO– My kids received several LEGO sets for Christmas, i always feel like LEGO’s are a good learning toy for children.


I hope you enjoyed my list of educational toys. What good educational/learning toys did your child(ren) receive this year?
