When you need great ideas, take your kids to the local library or craft store as they often have free classes, clubs or other events. You can get a feel for what your kids like to do, and what they dislike, and keep a logbook so you know what to touch on for lessons down the road. Follow the lead of your child regarding online tutoring. While you may be tempted to homeschool your child all the way to graduation, he or she may not feel the same way. As your child gets older, the idea of regular school may become more appealing. Always listen to your child, and take the time to look into all available options. When you are going to be homeschooling, you need to be creative. Many lesson plans are expensive, but you can create your own plans. For example, it's easy to make homemade flash cards with simple index cards and a laminating machine. If the kids help you it will make education plenty of fun.
