Happy Day 1 of Blogmas! for the next 25 days , I will be posting a something here on my blog everyday! Some recipes, Book Reviews from Bentley, Christmas DIYs and so much more! It is sure to be a lot of fun so check back here everyday to see what’s new!
We all know as parents that it’s a safe bet that our kids want some kind of toy for Christmas right? But as a parent (especially a homeschool parent) you want your kids to have an awesome Christmas AND get them something educational, something you can work into your everyday lessons. The first thing I did was let my oldest grab one of those “Toy books” that you get from the stores, he circled EVERYTHING he wanted and they were not surprisingly all toys, but one thing he circled was in the Amazon toy book and it was something educationalish ( I know that is not a word but we will just roll with it ). I decided to look up more gift ideas that would be fun and work with our homeschool lessons, so here is a Christmas Home school gift guide or some ideas for your child that loves to learn outside of school!

Globe for Kids
I found this awesome LED Constellation Globe that shows you the map and the constellations. Its perfect for any age and definitely a must get for any space lover!
Junior Metal Detector
Part of homeschooling is of course being at home some of the time, other times you want to get out go on a hike or walk to explore the amazing Nature right outside your door. Next time you can grab this National Geographic Junior Metal Detector and go on a hike and find some interesting hidden objects in the ground!
Does your kids love the Zoo, Aquarium, or the Children’s Museum near you, get them season passes! It would bring more “Field Trip” days and can double as a great family outing! Take them on a vacation and research some lesson related experiences that are around the area your’re visiting. For example we plan on going to Tennessee with the kids this year, I’ve already started looking up some mountain hikes, and places about the history of where we are going to visit.
On top of being a great make believe resource, a play register is an awesome way to teach how to count and handle money.
Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Paperwhite
For the teens who love to read, getting them Kindle Unlimited would be an awesome gift! Endless amounts of books for them to get lost in! If you are not too keen on getting them a tablet/IPad because of social media, the Kindle Paperwhite paired with the Kindle Unlimited is great for those bookworms!
This is something that is on our list to get the kids. Connect it to your Fire tablet, IPad and its endless amount of fun and learning plus the kids get the “screen time” they want! They learn shapes, math, letter building, and there is also some Disney kits that you can get as well! SCORE!
This is probably a no brainer, but books are still a great gift idea for those readers that just can’t put down the books. Every year we get the kids something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to READ. Currently we are reading The Polar bears Explorers club and are loving it! Were going to be do a book review on it later!
Christmas can be stressful and trying to find a good gift for the kids that aren’t just another toy they will get sick of in a week is something I think most parents stress about each year. I hope you are able to find something on this list that will help you with your Christmas shopping!
