For the first time in my life, I homeschooled last year. This year as my older two return to in-person instruction at our home district, I have prepared myself to start an early education program with my twins! I will be honest, the nerves are kicking in. To help myself, I made sure to pick up my must-have homeschool supplies.
A huge part of homeschooling for me has been continuously finding ways to make learning fun for my kids. The more time I spend with them the more I can figure out what they love and how they learn best. AND- also learning the tools I need to make this as smooth as an experience as possible.
5 Must-Have Homeschool Supplies
1. Organization Bins are Must-Have Homeschool Supplies
My husband doesn’t comment on my bin obsession anymore (hehe). I LOVE organization bins. You can pick up bins with lids and place art supplies inside, kinetic sand, molds, small figurines, etc. This is an easy way to keep all your homeschool supplies organized but also visible.
2. Art Supplies
I find that most kids love a good art activity. Nothing gets my kids concentrated and having fun more than a day of painting and coloring. Washable paint is a must and you won’t worry about any permanent staining. You can pick up packs of brushes of all sizes making it easier for those little hands to grab.
Crayons and markers are also a must. You can always find packs of washable crayons and markers and Walmart. With my twins being 2, the washable part is SO IMPORTANT because Lincoln is the first to take to a wall or better yet to his own body.
3. WaterWipes Are Must On All Homeschool Supplies Shopping Lists
My best friend introduced me to WaterWipes Textured Clean and I have not been the same since. I USE THEM FOR ALMOST EVERYTHING! The versatility is probably my favorite feature about WaterWipes Textured Clean, bottoms, hands, faces, feet, messes-WaterWipes Textured Clean has the job done. They may start off strictly for diaper changes but as my kids have grown so have their messes and my needs for WaterWipes Textured Clean.
WaterWipes new WaterWipes Textured Clean have new added texture and berry extract for even more cleaning power! I love that they are safe for sensitive skin because they are made with 99.9% water and a drop of fruit and berry extract.
So, ADD WATERWIPES TEXTURED CLEAN TO YOUR HOMESCHOOL SUPPLIES SHOPPING LIST! You can pick them up at Walmart in the baby section! Trust me when I say they can handle it all. Lucas even likes to use them to clean his brushes while painting. A mom tip from this mama of four- keep a pack in your bag, a pack in your car, and a pack in your homeschool area!
Whether it is little hands full of washable paint or the washable paint mess on my tabletop- clean is a WaterWipes Textured Clean wipe away.
4. A Printer
My printer has been my best friend throughout my homeschooling journey. There are so many resources online from free to paid you can simply download and print to use. You don’t need anything fancy, just something reliable!
Now, to pair with the printer- a laminator works great too and you can reuse pages by just wiping them down with WaterWipes Textured Clean.
5. Plenty of Table Space
Little bodies need lots of space to work. I recommend designating a table top area for their learning. Preferably something you wouldn’t mind taking on some scuffs and stains.
I alternate my kids between my indoor craft/homeschool area and working outside on their plastic picnic table. Both of these are surfaces that can take some tough toddler love.
A Quick Message
I want to end this by telling you to have grace on yourself. There are days that are and feel more productive than others, that is completely normal. You can use any activity as a learning activity from letting them help you in the kitchen to helping sort laundry. There is no cookie cutter way of homeschooling.
You got this!
Thanks for sharing this advice. I’ll try to stock all these items amid this home schooling.
