I want to touch on how I keep my preschool aged daughter busy and learning with workbooks, while I actively teach my older boys their Bible lesson in the morning.
My daughter hangs out on the floor, while the boys and I sit up on the couch. She is actively working in her workbook and using preschool worksheets, which gives me the time I need to focus on Bible with the boys.
We have a basket that sits beside our couch filled with things such as flash cards, workbooks, worksheets, activity books and other random learning items. We call this our Morning Basket, because it’s packed with the activities that are used to fill our morning time.
Workbooks & Worksheets
Right now we are absolutely loving all things school zone for our morning basket, but we have also used a plethora of other preschool worksheets and workbooks! My daughter just recently finished the Preschool Stickers workbook. She loved it so much that I just had to buy more just like it!
I tend to keep a handful of our favorite workbooks in our morning basket at any given time. Not only does this give your preschooler options, but it also helps them utilize their independence and develop those choice making skills! My daughter absolutely loves this! She simply picks the workbook that she wants to work in for the day, I give her instructions on the page and she gets to work! Sometimes she will do a page in each workbook, other days she will just do 3-4 pages in a single workbook.
Flexibility is key.

Why & When
to use Workbooks…
Love, love, love these workbooks and I definitely recommend them. They aren’t a stand alone curriculum, but can work great as a supplemental. My young daughter stays engaged just long enough for me to complete the task at hand. These work out perfectly for keeping little ones busy in between lessons, or even while Mom is busy making lunch! We always use them in the morning, but they do get pulled out other times through out our day as well.
Having workbooks on hand is always a great option! These particular ones work wonders for my daughter, I wouldn’t be sharing this if they didn’t. However, I encourage you to do some research and find the workbooks that will work perfect for your little one!
There are so many wonderful options out there, you can even make your own by using simpe worksheets if you wanted! Either way, they make a lovely addition to running a smooth homeschool with multiple children, varying in age.
