When you play alongside your children, you create memories and fuel learning in a low-key, non-judgmental way. There are no red marks, no corrections- only fun! I thought it would be fun to share a few history and geography gifts so that you can incorporate stealth learning into your homeschool routine.
10 of the Best History and Geography Gifts: Affordable and Fun
Today, I’m sharing ten of the best history and geography gifts. These gifts are fun and they won’t break the bank!
Favorite History and Geography Gifts
This year, our family has fallen in love with Around the World Stories. I cannot recommend these stories highly enough. While eating lunch, or snuggled on the couch, we have traveled the globe and learned so much in the process! I’ve also included three of our favorite DVD collections: Kids’ Animated History with Pipo, Liberty’s Kids, and Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego. I also have to mention History Unboxed, a monthly hands-on history subscription that we have enjoyed for the past two years. Finally, we have recently discovered Pin It! Maps and I can already tell they are going to be a favorite around here!
