Hello fellow educators! Education Outside is committed to providing enrichment activities for children. We aim to provide high-quality, custom worksheets and activities for a variety of topics. Whether you need rainy day activities, new ways to practice essential skills, or just plain fun art ideas, we’ve got you covered.
What is Education Outside?
Education Outside was built to come alongside teachers and parents to provide fresh new ideas for keeping kids happy, entertained, and learning. We all know how tedious essential skills can be for educators and children alike, so we aim to find and provide great ways to keep it fun.
Why Should You Trust Us?
Our staff consists of a team of teachers, former teachers, homeschooling parents, and education enthusiasts who strive to make learning as fun and multi-faceted as possible.
We thoroughly scour the internet for fun and simple ideas to be your one-stop-shop when it comes to finding activities for your students. Time is precious and we know you don’t have any to waste when getting your lessons together.
Our love of both teaching and kids makes us a great resource for whatever learning objective is in the lesson book, or even if you just want to throw together a last-minute, hands-on activity for a rainy day. We also provide custom worksheets and modules to supplement your lesson planning.

Mindy – Owner
“As a retired elementary school teacher, I know the struggle to find a variety of ways to teach so students don’t get bored. After friends and colleagues kept coming to me for ideas, I decided to start this site where anyone can access activities, worksheets, and resources for whatever they are teaching.”
Eric – Brand Manager
“I remember being a kid and how hard my teachers worked to keep me interested and busy. Kids don’t all learn the same way, I know I didn’t. That’s why I jumped on-board to help create and manage a brand for teachers to kids a variety of ways to learn, play, and stay busy.”
Susanne – Writer
“When my kids were little, I spent hours finding ways to get my kids ready to start school. Finding websites like this saved me. So when I saw the posting for a writer to write about activities for kids, I jumped at the chance. I love being able to work from home and write. Don’t tell my kids but sometimes I try the activities out while they’re at school.”
“As a busy college student, I needed a way to bring in some money while going through school. Writing for Education Outside was a perfect fit since I am a lifelong learner. I don’t plan on teaching but you never know where you’ll end up. I enjoy being able to write about fun activities that anyone, even parents can use.
Tommie – Writer
“I’m really just a kid at heart so I love seeing the creativity people come up with. Then I get to write about it from my couch! What could be better than that?”
How Does All This Work?
It’s perfectly natural to wonder how we choose the activities that appear on our site. While anyone can do a Google search to find the activities on our page, we put forth the time and effort to choose a variety of activities for various topics to make our site the only place you need to go to plan your lessons.
First, we research the top topics teachers are searching for. Then, we gather up some of the most fitting projects for that subject matter and compile them in one review. Our writers provide a quick guide to the activity so you can choose the best ones for your students. From there, we link to the detailed directions to make things quick and easy.
Our designers also create helpful worksheets you can easily print for your students. Whatever you’re looking for, we either have it or likely will soon.
Thanks for stopping by to learn more about us. We hope you visit again soon!
