Every parent is looking for Christmas gift ideas that are both fun for their children as well as provide fun ways to learn apart from their school day.
…And no parent likes having junk toys that have lost their interest two days later! Here are some of our favorites educational gifts that will bring joy to your home.
This is a fabulous kid’s card game that is geared toward Grammar level students. It helps them review famous characters in history, and the cards are so bright and colorful they will enjoy just looking through them! It is also meant to go along with our early elementary curriculum, Primer.
You can read about different ways to use this game in this post!
If your child loves a good hands on activity, lapbooks are a perfect fit! They are colorful and fun to make.
Kids love creating their own lift the flap books, and these fit into the fun of what they are learning! They will show these off with great pride to anyone who wants to hear about what they are learning in history.
This is fabulous extra addition to your schooling. These Pop Quiz CD’s allow Dad to listen along to what the kids are learning.
Or many homeschooling parents keep the CD’s in the car for those days that they need to review history but have a lot of errands to run!
Mini Figures & Accessories
We love making historical mini figures. They help bring history to life and allow kids to recreate the stories they are hearing.
Although we can’t sell every piece we make for our own collection, we have been posting a picture of one mini figure a week, so you can see what we create. Any age of brick lover will delight in these pieces!

Finally, here is a gift for you or any homeschooling mom in your life. Love the Journey provides wonderful encouragement and help for your homeschool.
