* I recommend The Bible App for devotionals you and your kids 12 and up. Keys For Kids for kiddos ages 9-11, and The Bible App for Kids for your kiddos ages 5-8. Adjust the ages as you see fit for your kids' maturity and understanding level.
** This is FANTASTIC for a Biblical Science for all ages. It leads to more research and papers/essays for older grades and very interesting discussions for all ages. Even I learned things along with my kiddos!
*** If you're going to use the free online version but prefer printed : I recommend printing out the PDFs in landscape mode, hole punch and put in a 3-prong folder. Or you can send to printer and have spiral bound with a cover. This would be cheaper than the book, if you prefer or need. You could also always just use it from a device if that is what you prefer.
**** You do not have to do a musical instrument. If you already have one that you do, continue to grow in the skill. Great beginner instruments [you can choose any if your kid is interested in something else] are :
