Learning Fun for Boys: Homeschooling Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Homeschooling active boys can pose quite the challenge for parents. Boys tend to move around a LOT and that can make it difficult to teach some school subjects, including writing, reading, and math. But there are many, many ways to make learning fun for boys and I’ve rounded up over 30 for you to try today!

If you’d like to get your boys into reading, don’t miss some our awesome list of over 120 books about the ocean, our roundup of Minecraft books for kids, and my tips on how to make reading fun for boys!

We love pinterest! And yes, much better to link to the originators site than pinterest itself. Go you!

Thanks for sharing. I've been toying with the idea of having a favorite pins post each week, too, and wasn't sure what the "proper" protocol would be as far as linking back. I think it probably does make more sense to link directly to the post. These are great ideas, too! I can't wait to try that parking lot idea. You can adapt that to so many learning themes, too. Thanks alot for the inspiration!! I found you through ABC & 123's linky and will visit regularly now. :)

Sight word parking lot is perfect timing for us, and my son is a big fan of mazes. I'll be pinning for sure!

Wow! Thanks for this! I love the busy bag idea one (especially her ideas of a bag swap. Hmmm), and my printer is busy printing out mazes and kid sudoku right now! I will probably put them in sheet protectors in a notebook so we can use them multiple times. :)
