If you’re looking for morning basket ideas… Well, there’s only a million 🙂 But having a morning basket or morning time in your homeschool is so beneficial for everyone, especially you!
What is a morning basket?
A morning basket is basically everything you can do together, as a homeschooling family, in one space. Many mamas choose to put their morning time items in a basket in the living room or their homeschool area, which is where the term “morning basket” came from!
What do you put in a morning basket?
There are so many things you can put in a morning basket! I’m sharing a few morning basket ideas with you here on the blog, but the possibilities are endless! However, there are specific categories or subjects that work really well in morning baskets for your homeschool, so consider these ideas when you’re looking for things to put in yours!
- Unit Studies
- Bible / Devotionals
- Morning Menus
How do you use a morning basket?
There’s no right or wrong way to use a morning basket! It’s YOUR homeschool, after all 🙂 You don’t even have to use it in the morning! It’s just a really neat way to bring all ages together to learn something new, hear a story, or create something fun.
Depending on how many things you have in your morning basket, you could divide the subjects up by day – or “loop” them. For example, on Monday you could do the essentials (read-aloud, devotional, journaling, whatever is important for your kids to do daily…) and then only do art related things in your basket! Tuesday, the essentials and music. Wednesday, the essentials and math or geography. You get the idea!
There are so many great resources and ideas for morning baskets in your homeschool! My friend, Pam, is well-known for her morning time ideas and goodies. Check out her website here and grab her book here.
