    Quick CARD GAMES that are perfect to bring to family gatherings

    During the Christmas season we have quite a few family gatherings. Some of them my kids have relatives around the same age and some they don’t. Whether or not they have people around the same age we generally bring a couple card games along to play. Card games are great for these circumstances because they don’t take up make space and they are generally quick to learn and set up. Today I wanted to share a few card games that we’re bringing along to family gatherings this year. QUICK FAMILY CARD GAMES COVER YOUR ASSETS Ephraim, my nine year old, bought this about six weeks ago and we’ve been playing…

    Another Homeschool Resource Haul: lots of good books and games for our homeschool!

    We got a “few” more new books and games for our homeschool and I wanted to share these new resources with you! I’ve been stocking up on some new books and games for the new school year and I’m so excited about some of the new resources we have. I love it when my kids are learning but they don’t even realize they are learning because they think they are just having fun.

I’ve written a couple in the past but we keep adding new games! My favorite things about games are that they are fun but also usually sneakily educational, which great for the normal family and extra awesome for homeschool families (game schooling is definitely a legit thing). Specific skills vary from game to game…

    Games We Use In Our Homeschool

    It’s been nearly a year since I shared a post of some of our favorite homeschool games and since then we’ve added a lot more to our list, so instead of just updating the post I thought I would write a whole new one. This will be our game master list so I will try to keep this page updated with our favorites and add new ones in as we get them. For the most part we get our games off of Amazon, like 80% of the stuff we buy . . . I have gotten a few from the thrift store but that can be hit or miss and…

    Using Games in our Homeschool

    My husband has always loved games, he even has a group of friends that get together every month to play games. So it comes as no surprise to me that both my kids ask to play games often. The only games I played when I was younger were pretty much Clue with my brother and endless rounds of Monopoly with one of my cousins (we did not play by the rules). We don’t have a huge selection of games but we are slowly building it over birthdays and Christmases, games are such a great gift to give kids. Thankfully almost every game out there has some kind of educational benefit to…
