Educational gifts for the holidays (with discounts for you!)

Written by Jamie C. Martin of Simple Homeschool

Gift-giving this time of year can feel complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. We want to fill our homes the same way we fill our lives: with what matters to us, with what’s truly important.

For homeschooling families, this means that we want the presents we give–to our kids and others–to contribute to the atmosphere of learning in our homes.

With this goal in mind, I wanted to highlight the long-term sponsors who have supported Simple Homeschool this year. And they have substantial discounts for you this holiday season, too!

I would have LOVED this preschool program if it had been available back in the day–with its focus on the liberal arts & its gentle simplicity. And this weekend the Winter semester is 25% off!

For those itching to get started homeschooling, this is a lovely way to spend intentional time with littles. Be sure to peek at the sample week.
