About Jungle Run Mama

Hello and welcome,

I am Jungle Run Mama and I live with my husband, 2 children and 2 dogs in the North of England. Jungle Run Mama has been around for a while in different guises, but for 2021 I am starting afresh and having a revamp not only of content for the blog, but also a revamp in our lives. Obviously 2020 was a difficult year for many, and the challenges were different for each of us.

We are in our third year of home educating our two children, and loving it. I wish we had done it sooner. It is very different choosing to home educate than what people have had thrust upon them during this pandemic.

I am trying to give an overview of what we do – and why we do it in our home educating adventure, and hopefully show that you do not have to recreate a classroom environment in your home.

There are many styles of home educating, which suit that particular family. The great thing about it is that it is YOUR choice as a family to find what works and how to make it work. It was daunting at first for us as many people seemed to have the perfect set up, structure and crafting station, we on the other hand were house sitting and moving around to different places for a period of time. I luckily found a great Facebook group of fellow ‘nomads’ and knew we were on to achieving a great way of life.

So my way may not be your way, but it is what we have chosen and we love it!

Take care,
