What to Do for a Month at Home: Elementary

Do you find yourself suddenly at home with younger children and wonder what to do to keep them entertained as well as educated? Though the idea of teaching your child might seem daunting, you don’t have to go it alone.

SchoolhouseTeachers.com has put together a list of activities—one for each day of the month—for you to try with your kiddos. All the suggestions require a few items, most you probably already have around the house. Each day has links with easy-to-follow instructions.

Looking for more? Join SchoolhouseTeachers.com (a full PreK-12 curriculum) to access over 400 courses, 100s of streaming videos and eBooks, and dozens of resources. One membership covers the WHOLE FAMILY.
