Homeschool Coupons for Back to School

Every year on the day our local public schools start back, we have our very own Not Back to School Party which usually involves eating out for breakfast, a trip to the big city to visit a museum or the zoo, and I try to come up with a fun way to kick off our school year. Last year I created a Homeschool Supplies Scavenger Hunt which the kids LOVED! In fact, the minute they noticed the school supplies being rolled out in the stores, they started asking if we were doing the scavenger hunt again. We had technically already started back to school for the year at that point, so new school supplies had already been purchased and were in use, but I wanted to do another scavenger hunt with them. But what would be the prize at the end?

Since Grace is participating in her first homeschool classes two days a week this year, I will be doing quite a bit of schooling at local libraries with the kids, which obviously means they need some cute backpacks. I’d never bought backpacks for them before, but that seemed like the perfect prize to be waiting at the end of our library scavenger hunt (yes, we’re doing it in the library this year so they can practice some library skills while hunting). Knowing how my kids think, though, the first thing they will do when they find the backpacks is open them expecting something to be inside. I didn’t want to spend more money, so instead I came up with Homeschool Coupons, and they are going to be perfect!


There are 19 coupons in all with two of them being “free” days where your child can choose what to do. The coupons include things like having ice cream for lunch, going bowling instead of having science class, skipping your least favorite subject for the day, etc. I know that the kids are going to have so much fun with these! However to make sure things didn’t get too out of hand, I have a disclaimer on the front of the coupon pack that says only one coupon may be turned in each week, including siblings’ coupons. So my kids are going to have to work together to decide exactly who is getting to use their coupon that week.


I’ve thought of a few ways to use these coupons. I hole-punched ours and put them on a binder ring. I gave each girl their own set of coupons while Levi is getting the four “Your Choice” coupons out of his sisters’ coupon books. You could also take the 19 coupons and divide them among your children so they all have different ones personalized for them. Another way to use these would be for good behavior/attitude rewards. Put all the coupons in a basket and allow your child to draw one out each week if they’ve had good attitude and behavior during school time.

I can’t wait for my kids to get their Homeschool Coupon books in a couple of weeks! And because I love my blog readers, you can download yours right now though; just click on the link below.


What fun things do you do to get your children excited about starting a new homeschool year?

  4. We school all year and don't do anything special for "back-to-school," but my kids have August birthdays and this would make a great little addition to their birthday presents. Also would make great stocking stuffer addition to any homeschooled child :) Thank you for sharing them with us, Chelli.
