Printing your Peaceful Press Curriculum

Summer is in full swing which means it’s that time of the year again! Do you spend time over the summer planning and ordering your homeschool curriculum? I secretly LOVE it.

Have you tried any curriculum published by The Peaceful Press? We literally own everything they have ever made! We use it as our spine curriculum. It has been the best addition to our homeschool days! Last year we used their Playful Pioneers study that uses the Little House books. You can see some highlights from it here. I ordered their new Kind Kingdom last month (along with The Precious People since we are still undecided on our time period for history). Both look AMAZING! I am sending them to the printers as we speak. We use the Homeschool Printing Company for all our homeschool printing needs. Plan ahead because it takes about 6+ weeks to receive your order but it is so easy to use and affordable! You will need to spend a time typing out your order. You get to choose what paper to use, color vs black and white, double sided, spiral bound…. so many options! But, if you run out of time, you can click save and they will email you a link to come back and complete your order in the next 7 days! Really handy for the always distracted homeschooling mother. 😉

I thought since I’m sitting here ordering a few things, I would create a reference guide to help when printing Peaceful Press Curriculum… because there’s a lot of components to order! Of course you don’t HAVE to print it this way. This is what I have found works for us. I put a * by the file names that you need to print multiple copies for multiple children. I usually hole punch the kid’s consumables and put them in a binder. That way my children can remove the page if the binding is bothering them when writing or coloring. I print the illustrated/simple copy work for my youngest child (age 5) and the student sheets/cursive for my older kids (age 7 and 9). Even though it’s not necessary to print their booklists, I like to print them off and hole punch to keep them in one master homeschool booklist binder with my planner so I have it handy at the library. I end up with 2-4 spiral bound items for the parent and one binder for each child. You could just have everything hole punched and placed into one parent binder to save costs (spiral binding is more). But I personally like to have the recipes and art separate for display purposes on an easel. I went ahead and added the cost to the chart so you can budget when you order the download! You can download and print each curriculum for under $100! 🙂
