5 Days of Free and Frugal Homeschooling: Art, Music, Language

Sharing is caring!

Hi Everyone! You may have noticed my site was down for much of Friday, and I missed sharing the final post in our Free and Frugal blog series because of it. Long story short, y’all overwhelmed my server (I’m not complaining!). I am still in the process of moving to a new host, so hopefully soon we’ll be up and running on a server that will keep this site running efficiently for you! Sorry about that, and thank you so much for reading this blog!

Art Lab for Kids

For older kids, pick up a used copy of Gardner’s Art Through the Ages– it’s an amazing art history text, and would be appropriate for AP test prep, or as self study for YOU! I kind of love this book. I paid about 15 dollars for mine, and it’s one of my most treasured books. The text is easy to read, and the information is complete. All art lovers need this tome.



Adventus Piano- for about 10 dollars a month, this program and a midi keyboard will teach your child to play music. We love it!

The Story of the Orchestra

Those Amazing Musical Instruments

Rhythm Instrument Activities for Young Kids


Foreign Language
