Welcome to another edition of Family Fun Friday! Last week we highlighted Homeschooling Helps for All Ages, but this week we’re focusing on two subjects that can pose problems for homeschoolers: math and science.
I loved math in elementary school, but I lost my interest in it somewhere around 7th grade. Coincidentally, that was about the time that we started studying Algebra I. 🙂 I’ve never really been a huge science fan. So I’m always looking for ways to make these two subjects fun for my kids.
This week’s features include some great math and science ideas for homeschoolers! Some even include sensory play, fine motor skills, and crafts! Don’t forget to link up your own posts! 😉

Here are my favorite posts for this week!
1. Simple puzzles are a great busy bag activity for toddlers and preschoolers and Toddlers Through Preschool has an excellent way to make them yourself: Use paper plates! Try this simple Paper Plate Puzzles activity to reinforce math and visual skills!
2. Help your little learners count with this adorable Counting Caterpillar Busy Bag from Powerful Mothering! You can use it to teach numbers, colors, and fine motor skills at once!
3. Tiny Tots Adventure has a great activity that includes sensory fun and science: Dinosaur Egg Hatching! Plus, it’s an opportunity to strengthen fine motor skills!
4. I am not scientifically inclined at all, so it’s hard for me to find ways to make science fun. This Pop Rock Balloons Science Experiment from A Little Pinch of Perfect is just what the doctor ordered!
5. Working on math facts with your kids? Try this adorable printable for learning Addition Doubles from All Our Days!
6. I literally detest spiders. Detest them. But I love this fun Spider Math File Folder Game from Crystal’s Tiny Treasures! This would be a great activity to help kids (and moms like me) get over their fear of spiders. 🙂
