Before I left for this vacation, I felt the incessant need to get our homeschool room as ready as it could be before I got back. We are returning six days before the official start of school after all. The last little project I got done the day before we left was our ‘bulletin board’.
Not a board for updates or anything…but a board that highlighted the seasons with lots of fun photos of the kids. I totally stole this idea from a friend of mine who doesn’t homeschool, but does have one of these in her house that she changes every season!
First I went to the thrift store, as always, and found a large cork board for $3. I took it home and covered it with some blue fabric I had purchased for another $3 at another thrift shop a few months earlier. It is a huge amount of fabric that I am sure will be used for many different projects!
I stapled the fabric to the frame of the cork board so there was a little bit of give. I wanted to be able to stable the photos and words onto the front, and if I did it too tight, it wouldn’t have been successful.
There are a few baskets I bought from the thrift store that are still waiting patiently to be filled with fun activities for the school aged people to partake in, but we are almost there!
Spill it: If you homeschool, do you prepare a room for your kids to work in? What are your must haves?Tweet
