We’re going into our 6th year of homeschooling. During the first five years, I’ve learned that a lot of supplies we need aren’t usually found on the back-to-school aisles at your favorite store.
These unconventional supplies end up being the ones that create the projects and learning experiences that really make the kiddos’ eyes light up and their gears go into overdrive.
Thought I’d share some of the more unconventional supplies that I’ve learned to keep on hand based on science experiments and random projects we’ve had through the years. Not all curricula are full of fun projects, but ours is and we love it!
Not everything in the list below is pictured, but you get the idea.
Clear Plastic Cups
- Electrical Wires
- Copper Wire
- 2V bulbs
- The list goes on. Here’s a smaller kit to start with.
