I know what it is like. The kids ask to do something fun for homeschool and you cringe. “Fun for whom?” you want to ask, because it definitely is not fun for mom.
Several weeks ago (when I was still quite pregnant with Creed), my 7 year old kinesthetic/tactile learner begged me to do a “Knight Party.” I was planning to do something of this sort to finish off our history section on Medieval Times, but I kept putting it off.
Why? Because it seemed too stressful.
I finally told him, “After baby gets here.” Well, baby has been here nearly 6 weeks. Time to make good on what I promised! But, did it really have to be a stressful event for mama?
I decided I had to change my expectations of what
fun homeschool things look like.
There was no way I was going to pull off an elaborate feast, but surely I could still make it memorable without a lot of fal-de-ral.
Today, I’m going to share with you how I did it, the resources I used, and what our family thought of the festivities.
