Homeschooling High School with Little Ones at Home

If you are homeschooling high school with little ones at home, save your sanity by planning ahead. Prepare for the upcoming homeschool year by spending some time putting together busy bags and boxes for your little ones! These will help keep those little hands busy while homeschooling your older ones. With any luck, you'll be able to form complete sentences and everything, when your little one is occupied with something entertaining.

Busy Bags 101

A busy bag is a bag that contains an activity your young child can use on their own with little supervision or instruction, at home, while waiting at the doctor's, or while traveling in the car.
