Over the past two years, I have loved writing and preparing printable packs for Jill at Enchanted Home Schooling Mom. I was privileged to write a super fun series called Preparing to Home School and created several printables aimed at toddlers and preschoolers called Little Learners Printable Packs. For health reasons, Jill is slowing down her work load and my contributions are on hiatus until her health improves. I, along with several of her readers, former contributors, and fellow bloggers have joined together in this blog hop to share some of our favorite resources from Enchanted Home Schooling Mom.
As I prepare for one of my favorite times of year; Fall, I find myself visiting the Enchanted Home Schooling Mom web site for ideas, recipes, and printables for the kids. Below are several of my favorite fall crafts and activities found exclusively on Enchanted Home Schooling Mom. If you complete one with your kiddos, I’d love to see and so would Jill. Please consider sharing with her on Facebook or Instagram!
