Each week, I’ll present a different resource that will help you in your endeavors to teach your child at home as cheaply as possible, or even better – FREE! Or, I’ll introduce you to another great website to assist you in living an abundant life on a not-so-abundant budget. So without further ado, here’s this week’s fine pick!
As homeschoolers, we often search for opportunities for our children to get out and socialize with other children in a fun and educational environment. I came across a great website that helps us to do that. It’s called ActivityTree.com, and it’s a resource that I’ve found to be very useful in finding anything that a kid could be “into” – from art & drama, to football & golf, even chess, archery and horseback riding.
Activity Tree is the nation’s largest online parent resource for kid’s lessons, classes and camps. You can search almost 80 different types of activities by zip code to find places to go and get involved in your area.
Laynie is really into Art – she loves anything I offer her to do if it’s related to arts and crafts, or involves paint, scissors or glue. I searched for “Art” in my zip code and found a list of four places I could take her within a 30-mile radius, two of them I had never heard of. I found each place’s contact information, website, and even maps for how to get there from my house.
Also be sure to check out their Get Kids Active! Facebook Campaign, which helps parents through social networking to get their kids active.
