Field Trip Fun

We have found an amazing homeschool group in our area that does field trips at least 1-2 times a month and weekly play dates. Thanks to our group we’ve gone to the zoo, Sea Center Texas and strawberry picking so far. I am even scheduling a new field trip to the local equestrian center so all the kiddos can learn first hand how a barn operates and the care that goes into having horses.


If you’re in a homeschool group, a good way to save money is buddy up with people who have memberships to where y’all are going. When we went to the zoo another mom got us in for free with her membership. Field trips don’t just have to be going to a place to learn about what they do. Homeschooling on the road can a mini field trip itself. Finishing up our first week of homeschooling this year we were actually at the beach. After completing school for the day our daughter got to go down to the shore for fishing, ocean views and sand castle building.


Some fun field trip ideas are:
  • Zoo
  • Beach
  • Recycling center 
  • Post office 
  • Dairy farm
  • Chicken hatchery 
  • Crocodile encounter
  • Fire department 
  • Equestrian center 


I’m joining in with Timberdoodle’s Learning on the Go Blog Hop so be sure to check out what others do for more ideas. If y’all have any great ideas for places to go hit up the comment section.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…
