  1. Top 10 Homeschoolin' Supplies on a Budget

    10. Composition notebooks (the kind for a $1) that you can cover with drawings, magazine cut outs, and seal with contact paper for absolutely EVERY subject. We have them for our writer's notebooks, bible journals, quiet time, science notebooks, math, and language arts.

    9. empty peanut butter jars -no cost once you eat the yummy peanut butter and my boys can find tons of things to do with them, absolutely the best bug keepers and play doh holders in the world (not together of course)

    8. PLAY-DOH, great cheap recipes that you can use for hours of delight, but it's not just for art, stamp your spelling words, do math problems, apply Bible truths to your lives, get messy with the gooey possibilities

    7. a bucket of art supplies (crayons, paper, scissors, glue, colored pencils, etc) My boys simply love secretly going into our classroom and creating cards and special drawings. Last night, my 4 year old snuck in during a timeout and made me a card with flowers that read ISREMOME (I'm sorry mommy). Yeah, stock the kids up to create!

    6. A comfy kid friendly reading area. You know those old pillows, wash them, find fun pillowcases at a thrift store, throw them on the floor and you have a magical book den. Don't forget to snuggle up with them and enjoy a good book yourself.

    5. Maps (you can find them super cheap everywhere nowadays) If you want to create world changers, they need to know the world! We found ones at WalMart (placemats) that adorn our dinner table. As God brings other missionaries to our table, the discussions fly and my boys' dreams soar.

    4. Books, books, books! I have a weakness, or maybe it's a strength. We don;t have access to libraries on the mission field, so every nook and cranny is stuffed with books. I love catching my little learners enjoying and reading for themselves. My best finds, hit the thrift stores on 1/2 off days. NO ONE is stopping by the books (except maybe me).

    3. Ahhh, how do I choose (there are too many things to fill up my top 10) so, I'm going to have to make a list for each subject. Sorry, just have to.

    2. A support group (thanks to my new friend Jill, I just found my first and I'm hooked) Seriously, I've done it alone for too many years. Get together with other moms, head to the conference thingies (sorry, I live out of the country:), join this blog. You'll be encouraged and your kids will reap the rewards.

    1. Prayer - it doesn't cost anything but your time! Seriously, I couldn't homeschool without the Lord's inspiration, creativity and guidance. He is the author and Creator of everything, so I'm sure He has a few great ideas for all of us.

  2. We are homeschooling and planning on adopting, so I LOVE your sites! I'm "favoriting" right now! :)

  3. I'm going to work on a list and post it on my blog (The Beautiful Sojourn) in the near future.
