    What a great resource! I’m hoping to purposefully incorporate some home economics into our next school year.

    I’m looking forward to exploring some of these links. I love the simplehomeschool.net post on cleaning with little children. For cooking, I love the Anabel Karmel books at our library. They have step by step pictures of kids doing the cooking.

    What a great resources list. I’m bookmarking this page for later use as I plan the upcoming year. I recently heard about a book titled See and Sew that I’m looking to implement in our home economics.

    You know, I never would have even thought about it. It seems like an oxymoron, me teaching them about cleaning. I think my husband would have a great laugh. But these are important life skills. Thanks so much for sharing on the #homeschoollinkup!

      I know – I’m the same way. I’m a horrible housekeeper. LOL. I’m trying to teach my kids to be better than me (not sure I’m succeeding) so they can take over and I can do less. muhaha. 😀
