Inventor & Invention Themed Morning Basket For Your Homeschool Unit Study

This Morning Basket collection is Inventor and Invention themed and a perfect addition to your homeschool unit study. 

The four main categories that we include in our morning basket each month are:

  • read alouds
  • madlibs and/or trivia
  • hands-on activities
  • games

The main reason we include these are because they are Emily’s favorite things and I find I like to start our day by connecting and filling her love tank.

Each morning (or whatever time we start our homeschool day) she enjoys the hands-on activities while I read aloud, then we do either a mad lib or some trivia, and we finish our morning basket time by playing a game together. What’s in this basket might look like a lot but chipping away at it every day for a month normally ensures we will get to enjoy it all.

Would like to see our morning basket in action and see how we have made it worked for us over the years? Check out our Join Us For Morning Time series on our YouTube channel.
