No. 2 Activity of 365 Homeschool Activities

Blog Post No. 1 of our "365 Homeschool Activities" stressed the importance of understanding that homeschooling is not "school at home."

We suggested that it's helpful to listen to children's ideas on homeschooling, and to be in tune to their interests and suggestions.

Yesterday's Activity centered on asking your children what they'd like to learn about or what new hobbies they might like to try.

Today's Activity: Encourage children to keep an ongoing scrapbook of their hobbies. The scrapbook can be as simple as a notebook or loose-leaf papers kept in a folder. Or it can be as creative or unique as a child likes.

Have children take pictures of their hobbies, draw illustrations of them, research and write about them, describe why they like their hobbies, and keep all the information in their Hobby Scrapbook.

Happy homeschooling at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com!
