This morning we asked the kids if they would rather work in their school workbooks or do some projects around the house with my daughter and I. Unanimously they wanted to do projects. We typically work on projects ourselves while the kids entertain themselves, but we thought, we are wasting a teaching opportunity! So now that our appraisal deadline has gone by and we passed, we can slow down and include out little helpers in some of our finishing touches in the house.
Finding studs, sanding rough spots, putting brackets on the wall, and helping hold boards while mom saws, all adds up to kids having fun when it’s a homeschool project.
