Back to Home-School #2: Sneaky Learning Games & Activities for Homeschool or the Classroom!




In this video, I share some suggestions for games and activities that are fun ways to “sneak” a little learning into game time. Some of these are tried and true classics and others are things you might not have heard of or thought about as being educational. I hope you enjoy this video and find some new games to add to your homeschool room, family game night, or classroom. Thanks for watching!

    Thank you for sharing!! Defiantly will be buying some games that you mentioned. Just a suggestion– I think it would be a little easier for the viewers to see the products if you recorded a little further back. The camera is very close to your face and maybe having the camera start at you collar bones and then up? (If that makes sense?) Don't want to come off rude. I'm a loyal subscriber 🙂

    We love Bop It.. I don't know if they make them anymore, but we love ours that I found at a yard sale. 🙂 The Flash Pad made me think about that.. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing. Amazing ideas for sneaky learning, I love it. I am new to homeschooling and I'm kinda concerned about critical thinking and what my kids might be missing out on, I will try the flash pad. thx

    Oh my goodness I don't have a single one of these, LOVE! I have an 18 mo and a 3 1/2 year old (both girls) so all of these ideas are wonderful for the future!
