Daily Spirit Themes

Dress up. Have fun. And celebrate being homeschoolers!

Animal Day

Choose an animal you love and dress up as it. You can be in a full out costume, a printed t-shirt, a Papier-mâché mask, or an outfit fully inspired by that animal. Bonus activity idea: Make a presentation on your animal of choice based on your homeschool studies. Especially if it helps raise awareness about that animal.  Check out today’s Parrot Mask DIY!

Dapper Day

Dress dashing and chic for Dapper Day. It can be silly or sophisticated. Now that you’re all dressed up, have a tea party, or go on a field trip. Today is all about classic fun in a modern twist of yesteryears. Bonus activity idea: Does your outfit fit a specific fashion time period? Study the history and culture of people who wore outfits like yours in their daily lives. Check out today’s A Dapper Adorable Day post.

Hero Day

“I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people.” – Maya Angelo

From everyday heroes to superheroes from comic books, we all have someone we look up to that inspires us to do good in the world. Today, dress up as one of your favorite heroes. Bonus activity idea: share what you love most about your hero and make a poster about their awesomeness. Check out today’s Hero Comic Book Project!

Disney Day

Disney Day pretty much speaks for itself 😉 Emmett and I love homeschooling Disney-style. Wear your Disney clothes, make Disney crafts, watch Disney movies, host a Disney karaoke day with your co-op group. Bonus activity idea: plan a Disney Field Trip with your homeschool co-op group! Take All the photos to commemorate the day and most of all have a blast!

Spirit Day

Finish this spirit week with your own homeschool’s apparel. Wear your school colors, order t-shirts with your homeschool name or make your own at home! Today it’s all about your family’s homeschool life. Bonus activity idea: Go out to the movies with your family, or some other fun place, and show off your fun homeschool spirit apparel.

    • #ThrowbackThursday
We have to take pictures when our children love studying trees, pinecones, leaves, and acorns as much as we do ❤️
    • What is one of your favorite adventures to revisit when you look at your photo albums?
I don’t usually post very many #ThrowbackThursday images. However, I’ve been looking back at old expeditions photos and couldn’t help sharing them all over again. ❤️

    • Don’t forget to grab your free Homeschool Yearbook Checklist after #HomeschoolChat!
    • Welcome to Homeschool Chat! Tonight we are talking about homeschool yearbooks. Give your answers below in the comments. I’ll share mine as we go in the Twitter Chat. .
Starter Question: Does your homeschool have a name?
Q1: Why do you want a homeschool yearbook?
Q2: Do you prefer printed yearbooks or digital yearbooks?
Q3: Will you use traditional headshots or fun unique poses for your homeschool portraits?
Q4: Are you going to make a family yearbook or a group yearbook with your homeschool co-op?
Q5: What will your child choose to put in their Career Capsule?
‪Career Capsule pages are so much fun! We turn it into a whole mini photo session. Have your child dress up as what they want to be when they grow up. Then, we they look back at their yearbook, they see what they wanted to be when they were younger! ❤️ It’s like a photographed time capsule in a book. ‬
‪Thanks for joining us for #HomeschoolChat. I’ll be around for a bit to answer any questions you might have about homeschool yearbooks. If you can’t stick around, I hope to see you next week 🙂‬
