One of my favorite part of homeschooling is being able to instill practical life skills in my children. When you are with them every day and living life together it is very easy to do this.

32-Survival-Skills
We are a big outdoorsy family and love learning practical life and survival skills. We teach these to our children because it is very important for them to know in case of a disaster or accident, especially when we are camping and out in the woods with no cell phone coverage. Some of these skills are dying out and it’s important to teach these when our children are still home with us. 

The Survival Mom has a great list of 32 skills that you need to teach your children. You can grab this comprehensive list with detailed links on how to teach these skills HERE.
