The #1 Homeschooling Craft Essential

With schools closing for unforeseen amounts of time due to COVID-19, many of us are wondering how we’re going to keep our kids both entertained and educated. Lucky for us, we’ve discovered the #1 homeschooling essential!

The best product for homeschooling kids

While many schools may provide coursework or conduct classes online, we’ve made it a priority to find some fun homeschooling activities to fill in the gaps. We’ve also made sure we have our Kid Made Modern Arts & Crafts Library on hand. Combined with any recycled cardboard boxes, egg cartons, toilet or paper towel rolls, milk jugs, cans, or jars – the possibilities are nearly endless!

 

Kid Made Modern Library

 

Filled with over 1,000 pieces including pom poms, sequins, popsicle sticks, glue, googly eyes, sticky jewels, beads, scissors, pipe cleaners and more – you’ll be able to craft, count, create, experiment and make the days of social distancing fly by!
