Funshine Express™ is a bright and cheery website, offering many different learning programs for little people – 6 months to 10 years! While the approach is school-based, homeschooling families can adapt the Funshine programs to a non-school mentality, using the materials as they see fit. Some of the kits can be purchased for one child, while some are for multiple-use and might work well for your support group or use with 2 families, etc.
The youngest curriculum kit offered is “Buttercups®”(6 months to 3 years) – a 2-month kit of laminated, colorful displays of different kinds of weather, a color & shape display that you add to, an attendance chart display, small board story books, manipulatives and other materials that help to develop your child’s gross and fine motor skills and provides music, language, art, cognitive, social, and sensory experiences.
The next curriculum kit is “Fireflies®” (3 to 5 years) continues with the various displays of Buttercups – weather, color, shapes but advanced for the older child. There are 16 art activities with supplies; monthly book lists that you can take to your library or bookseller; free downloadable Enrichment Activities and a great deal more!
“Jitterbugs®” is the curriculum kit for ages 6 to 10 years and designed for summertime use. This kit promotes physical development, cognitive development, creativity and social development. Included, per child, are supplies to make 8 creative projects with child-directed instructions, additional activities and games. The three themes included correspond to some of those offered in our Fireflies® and Buttercups® summer kits. Kits are packaged with enough materials for 4 children.
Finally, Funshine offers Faith Lessons, for children ages 3 to 5 years. This is a non-denominational set of monthly lessons from the Bible, to teach what God’s Word means for the child and how it relates to his/her life. Each Bible story is told using full-color detailed displays and their presentation is flexible, you can teach one a day, one a week . . . review or whatever you wish!
