3.1 Christian Resources: Ultimate Apologetics MP3 Audios

Slightly different from the Apologetics Podcasts page recently shared here (regularly scheduled programs), these audios are a compilation of classes, speeches, and sermons on various topics in apologetics. Sit at the feet of masters in your own home!

These art supplies may not only be thriftier than their store-bought cousins, but they’re often available 24/7 since you may well have the “recipe ingredients” already.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: More Than 40 Activities for Two-Year-Olds

Even somewhat older children will enjoy the fun as you spend some focused time with your two-year old. Some activities are silly and fun, others are ones that help them develop specific skills, and still others are creative in nature.

3.4 Creation Science: Free Online Videos

Find hundreds of free-to-see online videos in the creation science field. Some are seminars and convention presentations, while others are full length DVDs you may choose to view online or preview before buying as a resource. More than one interpretation of creation is represented, so parents will wish to screen first.

3.5 Language: How Do You Say…?

Do you wonder how to pronounce foreign words you read in geography, history, literature, or even in news stories? Here is a website that may have the answer. If you don’t find the word, you can request a pronunciation. There is a new language featured each day just to peek at out of curiosity. On the day of this writing, you could hear a couple dozen words in Kabardian.

3.6 Garden Ideas

From planning a garden (hurry!) to inexpensive crafts the whole family can do, here are several categories of garden-related activities. They count as homeschooling too–bird watching is science; seed starting, learning about tulips, and growing strawberries are all applied horticulture–not to mention fun!
