This month I have some really exciting things to share with you. We have been using and enjoying all of these products in our homeschool this month and I am thrilled to be able to share them with you!
I’m even doing a GIVEAWAY of one of my favourites, so scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter!
You do NOT need to buy any of these products to be a good mum, or give your child a good education!!!
The chances are you’re already doing a great job with our without these products!
However, if you are looking for something new and want to see what we’ve been using, please read on!
May Homeschool Favourites
This has to be my absolute favourite thing we did this month! We raised five caterpillars and watched them transform into butterflies…in our kitchen!
We had raised butterflies before, when my eldest son was three years-old, so we already had our Butterfly Garden. All I needed to do was just order the Caterpillar Refill separately online. This seems to be becoming a bit of a tradition!
The caterpillars came in their own little tub that contained all the ‘food’ the would need. We watched them grow…and grow …and GROW! They got really big!
I’ll be honest, they gave me the creeps a little bit! Thankfully, at no point do you have to touch them!
Once they had all made their cocoons, we opened up the plastic tub and carefully removed the paper-like insert from the lid, which had all the cocoons stuck to it. Then we pinned this to the inside of the Butterfly Garden
(essentially just a big mesh enclosure).
After a week or two, the butterflies suddenly emerged! We kept them in the house for two days, and gave them fruit, wild flowers and ‘homemade-nectar.‘ (Otherwise known as sugar in water!)
Releasing them into the garden was truly special! It’s memories like this that I will treasure forever insha’Allah.
We have really enjoyed using these books in our homeschool. This collection of reference books, is aimed at children aged 4-8 years-old.
From this series, we have:
Caterpillars and Butterflies
Rubbish and Recycling
The reason I really like this series of books is that the language in them is accessible for young children, without being too childish.
They are fun, informative and a young reader could comfortably read one independently. The illustrations are beautiful and it is very visually appealing.
I’m hoping to get a few more for next year when we start to study Ancient History insha’Allah.
I love the whole Nakd range! Their snack bars and fruit and nut bits are so delicious!
They are Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Sugar-Free.
The primary ingredient of the range appears to be dates and cashew nuts. There are loads of different varieties, but my favourite is the cocoa delight. It really tastes like chocolate, but it’s completely healthy!
These snacks are very handy to take out with us in the car or when we are out and about on field trips. It’s nice to know that the kids are snacking on something wholesome 🙂
The best thing about these snack bits are that they make NO Crumbs and NO Sticky Fingers and NO Stains!
For these reasons, they are an absolute essential in my homeschool.
