Homeschool Memoirs #12

Homeschoolers are very resourceful people. They use what they have and use them to their best ability. I know in our home many times people ask us how we use this or that for learning, and we are happy to explain it’s value. I think the main thing that a lot of people miss is that life is learning, and you must use everything in your home for learning otherwise you won’t fully be prepared.


This week I want to invite you to share what different games you use for learning in your homeschool. Outside games, board games, or card games, and what purpose or subject you use them for.

I love playing games and so do my kids.  We play board games, card games computer games, file folder games you name it!  We have a whole game closet

Having lots of little ones we play:

Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders and Hi Ho Cherry-O for colors, counting, taking turns, sharing

They like to play hopscotch- numbers, large motor skills

I have to share two favorites though that we just got this year from Aunt Teri and Uncle Brett (thank you)

The first one is Journey Through Bible Land it is for ages 3-6 and no reading required.  It is similar to Candy Land but Bible based.

The other one is Armor of God board game for ages 5 and up.  You have to go around the Board and be the first to collect the Armor of God pieces (cards).
