Welcome to The Alice

My name is Stacey. I am the mom to three homeschooled, unschooled, sometimes in school, self-directed teens/adult young men. I have been 'doing' some form of homeschooling since 2009 and have gathered a ridiculous amount of interesting bits and bobs to inspire and delight my children while they discover their world.

Join The Alice weekly email newsletter and I'll share it all with you.

What will you find in The Alice?

When you receive your weekly email you will find a list of possible options to explore with your family. Maybe it's a resource for an existing subject, interest or passion. Or maybe it starts you down a whole new path.

This is how the newsletter is sorted, with five of the below options guaranteed to delight and spark your curiosity:

  • Something to read - long form essays or stories at varying reading levels. (no book recommendations)
  • Something to discuss - a premise, idea or question to discuss with your children.
  • Something to watch - short video content to spark interest (no movies or documentaries)
  • Something to listen to - audio content to inspire and delight (no audio books)
  • Something to try - for the parent to try with their children (no to low cost options are the ideal)
  • Something to play - Games! Boardgames, video games, card games, any kind of game. Games we have played over the years.
  • Something to strew - for the parent to leave lying about (yes LEGO counts)
  • Something to geek out on  - big brain stuff, big words, edgy concepts, broadens the mind.
  • Something about Web3 - Blockchain, crypto, NFTs, DAOs, Metaverse. This could be in any format to introduce you to this interesting new world.
  • Something for littles - to play and explore
  • Something for middles - to discover and challenge
  • Something for teens - to dream and dive deeper

The newsletter will end with an Alice quote from either Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass or Alice’s Adventures Under Ground by Lewis Carroll, and a drawing from the original books illustrated by John Tenniel.

Why do I call it The Alice? Because it is meant to take you down the rabbit hole. Or perhaps it's showing you my trips down the rabbit hole? Either way - I hope you enjoy the journey.
