25 Free Educational Resources for Children

We all want what is best for our kids, whether that means homeschooling or placing them in public school. What works for one family could be completely different than what works for another. No matter which path you chose for your child’s education, incorporating additional learning at home is always a great idea. Right now, specifically, our country is in a particularly interesting situation and if you are found wondering how you can be a successful school-at-home-mom, this post is for you!

Your child’s school may have sent you an online learning resource but that may not be quite enough, at this time. We all know childrens’ brains are like sponges and I believe it’s our job as mamas to encourage them to learn and play as much as possible.

With that being said, here are 25 resources I have found to help you incorporate additional learning at home.
