Overlooked Homeschooling Tool: Blow-Ins


Here’s a quick homeschooling tip. The next time you’re flipping through a magazine instead of tossing all those subscription cards, also known as blow-ins, into the recycling bin why not put them to work?

Blow-ins make perfect practice tools for writing your name, address, and phone number.  Yes the type is small and it might be difficult for some little hands to write on the lines, but it’s still fun and practical!

I’ve started to collect them and when I need a Mommy break I’ll pull a couple out and have the kids get to work ordering more magazines! 

Check out my Linky Party Page for a list of places

I like to share stories like this one!

  1. Great idea! My kids usually turn them into paper airplanes but I think I'll have them practice writing their names first next time. ;) Thanks for the tip!


Thank you for leaving a comment, it really means a lot to me!
