FUN Home schooling lessons

I home school.
I use a curriculum most of the time, but I also stray from it and do the occasional unit study or unschooling.
In January, we are going to study horses and honey, and are also going to make and learn about:
- play dough
- bath bombs
- bath coloring
- silly putty and ooblek
...because it's fun and gives us cold weather projects to do.
Unit study plans are easy to find for free on the internet. I found our Honey of a Unit Study for free online. Now I just need to locate a bee keeper in my area for a field trip.
Home schooling need not cost a fortune. Resources for home schooling are so abundant online that you should be able to put together an awe-inspiring curriclum for next to nothing, no matter what the age of your child.
(Not to mention that putting together your own lessons is so much more fun for both student and parent than any boxed curriculum ever will be...)
