Check out these fun homeschool supplies recommendations and discover awesome ways to boost your homeschooling adventures!
How Fun Homeschool Supplies Can Help Take the Stress Out of Learning
Once you have the basics (need ideas? check out our free printable Homeschool Supplies List) for homeschooling, you may find that you have a bit of room in your budget to get some extras. Or perhaps you’re looking for different ways to motivate your kids and improve focus?
Fun homeschool supplies are excellent and easy ways to capture attention and encourage kids to complete work. When my boys use a Star Wars notebook or a Harry Potter pencil, their faces light up and they are ready to do this homeschool thing.
There’s something special about using a homeschool supply that makes you smile. Think about when you were in school or even now. Do you have a special coffee mug or favorite pen that just makes life a little better?
That’s what fun homeschool supplies do for our kids. Because even though they are learning at home, our kids still deserve special motivators and rewards for their hard work 🙂
I remember when I was in public school. Bic 4-Color ballpoint pens were the rage. I got one from my parents as a reward for a great report card. When my teacher allowed me to use that pen for special assignments, I felt like I was on top of the world.
Just think how your kids will feel when they have a special homeschool supply like that!
How to Pick Fun Homeschool Supplies for Your Kids
The easiest way to select supplies that your kids will love is to just ask them. I’m sure they’ll have a few opinions to share 😉
If you’d like to surprise your kids, my suggestion is to look for supplies and materials based on their interests.
Or maybe you have kids who geek out over video games? Search for homeschool supplies with themes from their favorite game. (Got kids who love Super Mario? They’ll love these free printable activities.)
Another option is to go with a color theme. Get supplies for each child in their favorite color.
And seasonal or holiday themes are always a hit!

Ideas for Storing & Organizing Your Fun Homeschool Supplies
I recommend finding a place to store and organize your fun homeschool supplies once you get them. This step will prevent overwhelm and mess 😉
You can get creative and use what you have around the house. My boys and I have fun decorating and labeling empty cardboard boxes, shoe boxes, and glass jars. For smaller items, plastic zipper bags are great for storage.
- Recycle cardboard or shoe boxes (decorate, label)
- Glass jars
- Empty (& clean) coffee tins
- Plastic bins
- Plastic pencil boxes
- Tackle box
- Zipper bags
