I have never hidden the fact that I dislike teaching science, I find the subject too difficult, too boring, and too messy! But I love math, so we can’t have everything! I know I am not alone!
No, I am not that cool mom who is going to dissect a frog in the kitchen.
No, I am not that mom who is going to create a chemical explosion in my garage!
I just can’t stand the mess, and nor do I have the patience!
I wish I did, and I am secretly jealous of those moms that do. But I am not one of them!
But worry not, I have some great homeschool science tips for moms like us!

Homeschool Science Tips
Outsource, outsource, outsource.
It’s the only way! There are a number of ways to outsource science and I am going to share with you my top 4.
Online science membership
I have recently discovered that you can get a monthly online science subscription for every class you could possibly need in science. Greg Landry’s homeschool science for grades 4-12 is the only way!
Homeschool science doesn’t need to be hard or dreaded when you can outsource it!
Greg Landry’s Homeschool Science Membership is a monthly online science membership. This means you pay a decreasing monthly fee and the whole family can benefit. There are courses from grade 4 all the way through to grade 12. The longer you subscribe the cheaper the access gets, but also you can cancel at any time. You are not tied in.
I also love the fact that they offer science freebies.
Despite my lack of enjoyment in teaching science, I actually love going to science museums. The kids (and us adults) get to play and push buttons, and it is really fun. This is a picture of my son at our local science museum last year.
This is an absolutely great way to bring science into your homeschool, well actually out of your homeschool but you know what I mean!
We don’t have many secular homeschool coops where we live, however, we have found a wonderful science homeschool group that my son attends weekly. It is the only subject, other than piano that we currently outsource.
Check out our favorite secular homeschool curriculum that we love for all subjects.
Science Subscription Boxes
I highly recommend getting science delivered to your door. It comes with everything you need for the experiments, and the mess can be contained!
We currently have 2 monthly boxes delivered from Mel Science and KiwiCo Eureka Crate and we love them both. Mel Science is more experiments, and the Eureka crate is more building and STEM-based. Check out our reviews of both of these science boxes, but you are going to love them.
I hope you have enjoyed our homeschool science tips for us moms who hate to teach it. Make sure you check out Greg Landry’s homeschool science we will be using it for years to come.
