Creative projects for home schooling

As a home schooling parent, you need all the help you can get. At Animaplates, we understand this.

Animaplates were created by Joelle Meijer. When Joelle was a teacher she constantly tried to find new ways to make learning more fun and effective. She found that many topics that seem difficult to teach can be made more accessible (and more fun!) when they are introduced by or combined with an arts activity.

Now you can benefit from 20 years of experience and get access to a wealth of educational resources.

Easy crafts, awesome projects

Bring science lessons to life. Illustrate Bible stories. Make lesson time something they'll look forward to!

A free membership gives you access to over 75 free projects with step-by-step videos and printable instructions.

A basic membership gives you access to an additional 75 Animaplates arts projects specifically designed to integrate with the rest of your curriculum.

For each Animaplates project you get:

  • Detailed instructions.
  • List of supplies you'll need, so you can be prepared.
  • Teaching Resources that help you relate the arts activity to other learning objectives.

With a pro membership, you get even more resources for making your activities super interesting:

  • Puppet Plays that your kids can perform with their Animaplates puppets
  • Printable documents such as crossword puzzles
