I have a free printable for you today! Sometimes we just need some inspirational words to keep us motivated. This a gift to help inspire creative learning in your homes!
Not only will it remind you of the reasons why you educate your kids at home when you are feeling burned-out, maybe it will give your children some ideas of positive ways to spend their time this summer.
This mini-poster is a downloadable PDF file. You can print it on regular printer paper and place it into an 8 x 10 frame. Or just stick it to your refrigerator as a lovely reminder for your kids to spend their time wisely this summer.
Here are a few ways these words might inspire you this year!
Read: Share a favorite book from your childhood with your children. Listen to some audiobooks on hot summer days.
Think: Make plans for new things to learn next year. Take some time alone to write in a journal.
Give: Clean your room and donate some of those unused toys. Earn some money and donate it to a good cause.
Create: Learn a new craft together. Write a story and act it out with some friends.
Serve: Volunteer with a local ministry or non-profit. Take a meal to a new mom or sick friend.
Go: Act like a tourist in your own town and go see the sights. Look for short-term missions trips to do as a family.
Love: Learn to love someone that seems unlovable by inviting them to spend time with your family. Practice loving each other with kind words every day.

Discover: Go for a hike and look for wildlife you’ve never seen. Search the library for some new books.
