In this portion of the Homeschool Alliance, members are challenged to include one non-traditional enrichment activity into their homeschools. Themes range from experiments with weather to backyard games to poetry to candle making! Each month's theme has three levels of challenge so you can do the "one star" level and feel pride of success if you don't have time for the more advanced challenges. At the end of the month, reward yourself with a badge!

There's a library with a slew of activities, too, if you want to try some of our previous themes.

This Month's Challenge: Soup's On!

Soup's On!

Let's soup up our family life and learning this month! 

Soup is ordinary and everywhere, offering quiet nourishment and bringing warmth to our homes. This month we bring soup out of the background.

We'll use soup to eat our words, we'll experience soups from other places and times, and we'll connect storytelling with some soup-making magic. 

Try one or more of our Alliance soup activities. We've pulled together links and ideas so Soup can be your One Thing this month! 

If you take photos of your kids doing one of the Soup's On challenge activities, you can post pictures on the One Thing thread in Community Coaching, or post them on Instagram or Facebook. Use the hashtag #homeschoolalliance so we'll be sure to see them. 

Try one of this month's Soup's On challenges (or all three!), and award yourself the Soup's On badge (click on your profile in the upper right corner, select badges, click on the one that goes with this challenge once you've completed it).
