31 Days, 31 Printables {Day 1}: an Introduction

For the third year in a row, I am thrilled to be joining The Nester for the 31 Days Challenge. (Last year, I shared 31 Days, 31 Smiles: Having Fun With Your Kids Without Losing Your Cool and two years I wrote 31 Days For the Struggling Mama.

I am honored that you have landed here.  My name is Kristin, I've been married 12 years, and  this is our 7th year of homeschooling.  We have children in the 6th, 4th, and 2nd grades, plus a kindergartener and a preschooler to liven things up.  We pass our days with an eclectic mix of Charlotte Mason-style, unschooling, natural, and traditional learning. 

During the summer, I was searching online for something to explain basic animal taxonomy to my kids.  I wanted something visual and I wanted it to show how the animal kingdom splits into groups based on characteristics (backbone, no backbone, etc.).  I looked and looked (and looked and looked) and could not find what I wanted so I was inspired to create my own chart. 

A few weeks later, I went online to find a very basic Bible study, one that would help my kids navigate different parts of the Bible while improving their comprehension, too.  Again, I couldn't find what I wanted so I made my own.

I was inspired to create more printables and offer them here every day this month.  During the next 31 days, I will be offering free printables to use in your home and your learning environment.  You do not have to homeschool to benefit!  I will be offering printables on a variety of subjects from book reports to musical instruments to art to handwriting practice to routine.

My prayer is that you feel welcome here and you continue to visit after the month is complete.

  1. Great idea! Off to make sure that there's plenty of ink in my printer... :)

  2. I can't wait to see what you've come up with. I've jumped into my 31 days with both feet and very little prepared ahead of time. I do love the challenge, but I'm still hoping to get ahead a little so I'm not up late every night this month :)

  3. I can't wait to see what you share over the next month! You have an absolutely beautiful family. Thanks so much for stopping by my 31Days post!

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    I homeschool as well so I'm definitely bookmarking so I'll remember to stop in every day. :)


  5. I just started homeschooling my three kids this year and I knew it was hard but had no idea it was this hard. Hopefully you have some great tips for me... Thanks!

  6. What a great series! Now I have to get my printer working. = )
