Life is busy and learning is spent more and more on the go. Too, learning should be flexible and can happen anywhere. Whether you want to change the place your kids learn like to the park or are planning a vacation, you’ll love these 10 best ways to easily transport homeschool curriculum.
ONE/ Not just any old backpack.
A backpack is a good option for each kid and each kid can keep his books and supplies separate. Besides we all love school supplies and backpacks are great ways to pack it all up and head to the park.
If you’re going on a longer trip like we did overseas we used the Coleman and Swiss Gear backpacks. They were large, sturdy, and I carried our mobile printer and big laptop in the ones we bought.
Too, if you’re going to do a lot of traveling, a sturdier backpack to hold laptops and printers is best. An inexpensive one works elsewhere and is perfect for park days.
TWO/ Reusable canvas tote/grocery bag.
You can use those plastic bags you get at the grocery store, but I love the canvas totes and some come with pockets so you can have a place to store your supplies.
Transporting Homeschool Curriculum
Put the books and supplies in the tote and we’re off to the park or beach on a pretty day to learn outside.
THREE/ Not just any old milk crates, but collapsible milk crates.
Milk crates are an inexpensive option to carry your curriculum, but when we did that we still had to find a place to put our milk crates. That meant they normally took up space on the picnic table top.
It still works, but I love the collapsible milk crates. Take out your supplies and collapse the crates to put out of your way. Nifty!!
FOUR/Clipboards with storage.
Clipboards with storage are hard to beat when you want to pick up and go for the day.
Clipboards are built in desks and make for a great tool when your kids won’t have a table or don’t want to learn at a table.
When my kids had to spend long days at the hospital with me as I took care of my sick husband, we changed out activities each day in the storage part of the clipboard.
Pick up and go and your homeschooling on the go is ready to move with you
Storing Curriculum on the Go
FIVE/Small free standing tote.
Then I love this storage tote because it’s both free standing and has handles. When you don’t need to carry a lot, it’s the perfect size.
If you need just a few pads of paper and a place to store your supplies upright, this expanding paper folio is the perfect answer.
SIX/ Nifty storage tote with a divided tray.
This next storage box is great for keeping supplies organized. It has a removable tray which is one of the best features.
You can put crafts or small supplies in the divided tray and take out the tray to use while learning on the go. I used something like this when we rented a house in the mountain for a month.
It was small enough to pack in the car, but kept small things organized for easy reach.
I have owned so many of these wheeled carts through the years, I can’t even count. They have been worth every penny I spent on them.
This one we used at the park too when we wanted to stay longer.
Since it’s plastic and sturdy I didn’t mind rolling it around the park. You can easily add dividers to it.
Eight/Wheeled cart, but better for teaching a co-op.
Depending on your needs, I found that the wheeled cart with storage pockets below was better when I was teaching a co-op.
The pockets on the outside are perfect when you need to easily put your hands on your supplies. It’s the perfect desk on the go.
Portable Homeschool Curriculum
NINE/ Clear project cases.
These project cases have two advantages. They are clear and 12 x 12.
I love clear containers so we can see what is in them and then we don’t need something real big when we take a project on the go.
This is great for carrying a lapbook or notebook that is work in progress. It stores all the small pieces.
TEN/ The deluxe of them all.
This last rolled storage tote has to be the most deluxe of all portable storage with tons of pockets to organize all your homeschool curriculum.
Don’t forget to grab all the fun ways to organize school supplies on the go. I’m eyeing this nifty pencil storage for older kids. I love the fact that it’s not baby-ish.
Homeschool Learning on the Go Tools
These chair back pockets are great to take on the go and fill with your supplies.
I love them for vacation. It gives us a place to store our art supplies and few books. Fold and go and then store when you get to your “home for a week or month”.
Last, but certainly not least you can never have enough dry erase reusable pockets.
You can use them for activity pages, but also there is no limit to how you can use them. They store paint brushes, wipes, erasers and writing supplies.
Learning outside four walls is the best way to learn and our homeschool curriculum is important. Packing it for a short move or longer move requires the right portable storage tool.
