Free (or almost free) Resources for Homeschoolers

Living within our 1 income budget ain't easy....but I am preaching to the choir on that I am sure...so I try to find as many FREE or almost FREE resources.  So I thought I would compile a list here and have everyone add to it as you find resources to share!  Breaking it up into websites, blogs and other. I know that there are thousands of homeschooling websites, cant list them all, but just ones I recommend.

Websites:
Planet Protectors Club (AWESOME for Earth Day coming up) This is a FREE resource from the EPA - age appropriate from preschool on up to highschool
Lego Education I can't say enough about this site. So many things to do here, you just need to hunt around.
Seussville  - Exploring the world of reading, Dr Seuss...lots of games, printables
CurrClick - they do have FREE lesson plans and units also have very inexpensive ones. I recommend signing up for their e-newsletter too.
The Homeschool Freebie of the Day - GREAT SITE!
Homeschool Free Stuff Newsletter - again...tons of stuff! (lots of history in this FREEBIE)
Lapbook Lessons - you need to sign up, but it's free - TONS of lapbook lessons
Easy Fun School - a lot of free stuff here!

Blogs:
Homeschool Creations - a TON of preschool activities, printables and lesson plans for your little one - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this blog
Living Montessori Now - sign up for her newsletter and get your lessons emailed to you
Sun scholars - great crafting for kids homeschooling site
The Linton Academy - she has a lot of printables and lesson plans

Other Good Websites that I have bookmarked -but don't use all the time:

http://www.kidssoup.com (this costs $ 2.12 per month to be a member, they bill you 1 time for the year, well worth it)
http://crafts.kaboose.com/ (great for craft ideas)
http://www.first-school.ws/THEME/cp_bible.htm (great for bible coloring pages)


Please feel free to add some in the comments section to share!

Thank you for sharing these links!
There really are so many resources online, but sometimes finding them is a little tricky (for me, at least) I'm always grateful when someone posts links! Thanks!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
