16 Home Schooling Hacks

If you need some help transitioning from traditional schooling to home schooling for your kids, then you need to try out these 16 Home Schooling Hacks! The changes might seem scary or confusing, but with our help you and your kids will be successful in no time at all! Whether you need help with home school organization, DIY school supply creation, DIY home office ideas, and outdoor activities for kids, this guide will help you find what you need.

Many activities can be made into educational resources for teaching your children, as long as you keep your mind open and are comfortable with getting creative!

Home School Organization

It might seem daunting to make the change from traditional schooling to home schooling for your children, whether you are doing it of your own volition or due to safety measures in your city or state. However, getting organized and figuring out how to store teaching materials and your kids' classwork and homework can make things a lot easier. Whether you want to make big changes (such as more permanent shelving and carts) or smaller and more simple desk organizers, even the smallest effort will make things easier in your home.

DIY School Supplies

While you can obviously purchase school supplies at any office supply store, you can customize your kids' home schooling experience by making your own DIY school supplies. Whether you're decorating purchased supplies or creating them completely from scratch, use your creativity to liven up office supplies for your children and keep them from getting gloomy about being unable to go back to school like normal.

DIY Home Office

Home schooling doesn't only involve a change in scenery but it means that you have to adapt your home to facilitate a better learning environment for your kids. Whether that involves making portable homework stations or desks, or converting parts of your home into workspaces for your children, you'll be sure to find something in this collection that can make your homeschooling experience easier.

Outdoor Activities for Kids

Heading outdoors during the day is a great way to break up the schoolday and add variety to homeschooling. Even as the seasons change and some activities might become harder to complete as cold weather sets in, you can adapt these crafts and projects to improve your kids' experience. One of my favorite activities that can be adapted for the seasons is a Museum in a Box, which your kids can fill with seasonal items and swap out their "exhibits" as new materials become available. Many activities can be taken outside as they are but even taking your kids outside for lunch is sure to excite them!
