  1. 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.

  2. What an awesome resource! I love teaching my kids home ec and am pinning this to check out all the links later! Also, wanted to thank you for taking the time to link up at the Homeschool Linky Party Week 38! Hope to see you again next week!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

    1. 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. 😀
