Considering Handicrafts & Activities in your Homeschooling-

I had been working this week on my 11 year old's  US History learning.  I have been creating teaching outlines that are adapted from the History program we are going to be using after Christmas.  We decided on using a more traditional approach for our 11 year old.  We chose Alpha Omega Lifepacs for his History.

He has been asking for a change in his history learning because he really has started to enjoy more and more a workbook or notebook style of learning.  ( this is very different from when he first began but I have seen that his learning is forever evolving and at this point he is ready and very happy about changing to the AOP.

With the outlines I have created, (one outline for each lifepac) I have added further book resources (we still will continue using Living Books for learning our History) online resources and handicraft ideas, along with notebooking and lapbooking resources as well.

While looking up some activities I realized how we had stepped away a bit from doing handicrafts or activities like crafts in our learning at home and I would really like to try and move back toward doing more.  My youngest is not really BIG on crafty things and can be resistive to certain things, but is seems that once he gets going on something he happily becomes more involved and willing to try the activity out. (It just takes some coaxing)
