Monday Pep Talk No. 2

 home|school|life magazine's Monday Pep Talk has lots of fun ideas for planning your homeschool week.

Our little dose of homeschool inspiration will help you start this week off with a little more oomph.

3 fun things to do this week

Give some of your beat-up but beloved readalouds a makeover by making custom hardback covers for them.

Encourage your young authors and artists to submit their work to Launch Pad for consideration. (Because getting published feels kind of awesome.)

Start stocking your medicine cabinet for fall and winter with DIY syrups, salves, teas, and other herbal remedies. This book of DIY natural remedies from Frugal Granolawill get you started.


3 ideas for this week’s dinners

Pretty (with purple cabbage, green beans, and golden peaches) and unusual, this salad is a perfect unexpected side for grilled fish or chicken.

This vegetarian zucchini, rice, and onion gratin would be a good thing to master now, before your neighbors start sneaking zucchini into your mailbox.

Frittatas are the ultimate easy dinner — and this squash, tomato, and basil versionis packed with summer flavors.
