It is so much easier to get back into the homeschool groove when there is a project to do! Don’t you agree?

I’m sure the kids will agree with me, so here’s what you can do to help with the transistion of “back to homeschool”.

Make this adorable mason jar craft that will (hopefully!) encourage the kids to keep ALL of the pencils in the same place. The place where you can actually find them!

As usual, this craft is easy peasy and super cute. One that you can supervise mama, which is the best kind!


What’s Needed

  • Acrylic Paint (Pink, Light Tan, Black, Yellow, Grey)
  • Mason Jar
  • Foam Brush and Paintbrushes
  • Black Permanent Marker



  1. Paint the bottom of the mason jar pink. Let dry and repeat step until you reached the coverage you’d like.
  2. Repeat step one for the grey, yellow, light tan, then the top will be black. Let dry.
  3. Once the jar is completely dry, take the black marker and make a zig-zag line between the yellow and light tan colors. Then draw a No. 2 on the yellow part of the pencil.
  4. Fill with pencils. Great for your new homeschool pencil jar. And maybe, just maybe, you won’t lose ALL of the pencils within the first week.

Sooo, what do you think mama? Pretty simple and super cute, huh?

Feel free to show me your finished project by tagging me on Instagram ( @MamasCoffeeShop ) or by sharing in the Facebook Group at ( ).

Enjoy your adorbale new mason jar pencil and pencil holder!

And happy Back to HomeSchool!

In His Grace,



It’s Back to HomeSchool time!!

It’s that time of year, when many homeschoolers are busy preparing for a new school year.  Some of you may have already started your new year, and some of you may have never stopped! (like me!)

I’ve gotten together with a great group of bloggers to make getting ready for the new school year just a little bit easier and hopefully a little less stressful on your wallet.  How does $250 sound in helping you buy curriculum, books, games, puzzles, and educational supplies?  Two people will win a $250 gift card to!!

We know homeschooling can put financial strain on families – whether it’s from living on one-income or buying curriculum for your children – the financial aspect of it can be stressful.  Our hope is that we can bless a couple of homeschool families (although we wish we could bless many more) so they can buy the curriculum and supplies they need.

To enter for your chance to win, simply use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  Now I know that is quite a few entries for you, but each of these bloggers has generously chipped in their own money to make this giveaway possible, so I hope you will take the time to do all of the entries.  And hey, the more entries you do, the better your odds are of winning!

Giveaway ends August 16th, 2019 at 11:59pm ET.  Must be at least 18 years of age.  Must be a resident of U.S. or Canada to enter.  Selected winners will have 48 hours to respond to email notification to claim their prizes or another winner will be drawn.  By entering this giveaway, you agree to be added to the email lists of the participating bloggers (see the Terms & Conditions on the Rafflecopter form for the complete list).
