Jacobsen salt – rosemary one is just unreal.
For documenting homeschool work and photos (if you need to for the state or just for fun) – print onto stickers from your phone using this printer.
Iwako erasers – take them to dinner with friends who have kids. They’ll love you.
Maldon salt pinch tins – my foodie aunt says it’s okay to take these to restaurants. Smoked ones too!
Glow in the dark scorpion necklace. This isn’t a joke. Kid-tested.
Sun Bum stick – my good friend in NY told me about this. Total winner, smells great.
RBG t-shirts Ruth Bader Ginsburg on your shirt!
Making our own deodorant. Not kidding. It smells great and it works. It’s so popular here in Austin that I’ve taken it off the site so a friend can explore a biz op…but email for a sample!
The Wednesday Chef and her soon to be released German Baking Book.
Overnight sourdough waffles – you can buy a sourdough starter from the King Arthur site or just ask a friend who uses it for a little bit to get started. This recipe is one I make over and over. Sourdough isn’t much work and is totally worth it.
Favorite homeschool WeBsites
(The ones I return to over and over….)
Gilder Lehman Institute for American History – linked to the American Revolution page for an example. Interesting timeline to work through starting with a middle school aged homeschool group.

For a rainy day, check out Zooniverse. Projects you can help sort data (real science!) Kids really get into it.
