100+ Affirmations for Homeschool Moms
As homeschool moms, we are constantly putting on a juggling act, rotating all our responsibilities as parents, partners, and teachers. Our minds are constantly in motion, whether it is stressing over milestones, making sure the kids are happy, weighing our curriculum options, re-evaluating schedules and lesson plans, and plenty more. Sometimes we are doing all of this while keeping an eye on the chicken in the oven, folding and sorting laundry, and demolishing sibling squabble. One thing that I found that helped me manage everything in my mind is positive affirmations. I have talked about the power of positive affirmations many times and how important they are to add to your and your children’s daily lives, but right now, we will focus on affirmations for homeschool moms. Before we begin, please take a moment and pin this post, 100+ Affirmations for Homeschool Moms, to your homeschool board.
There are Fantastic Days and There are Hard Days, All Days have Affirmations
As a homeschool mom, I am sure that you can relate to the fact that some days are amazing! Everything flows like a rolling river, the lesson connects with your children, everyone is happy for the most part, and you are learning and having fun like no one else, ah why can’t homeschool always look like this. There are other days, days that make you feel like giving up on this whole homeschool thing, days when the math lesson ends in tears and the yelling between children has turned you into a raving lunatic, “Just Love Each Other Already!” We have all been there and will go there over and over again. As you probably already know, homeschooling is not for the faint of heart.
Power up with Positive Affirmations
But just because it isn’t for the faint of heart doesn’t mean that the hard days should break your spirit. If you are climbing out of those no-good, terrible, horrible, very bad homeschooling days, then you know that it is hard to climb out of that type of negativity and guilt. You may be inclined to give up, instead start a routine of reciting some positive affirmations and reminding yourself of what is important. What you’re doing for your children is precious, life-changing, powerful, and overall superhero work.
If you have seen our recent post of 140+ Positive Affirmations for Children, then you may have seen the activity of creating positive affirmation cards. I did this with my children and created my own cards. It is something I go through quickly in the morning while I start my day. It can be bundled with journaling or daily prayer, or even your cup of coffee. Just say them every day, out loud or in your head, and notice the changes in your thinking and life.

Create your Own Positive Affirmation Cards
If you have done this activity with your children already, then you may have noticed how fun and exciting it can be. My kids loved the experience of choosing positive thoughts and decorating cards as they saw fit. My daughter drew out the positive thoughts on her cards as my son enjoyed using all the images of his favorite characters and designs to glue on with his affirmations. They love looking at them, so it is easy to incorporate each day. Now it is time to focus on you. Maybe you are super creative and will love to take this time to get crafty while creating your cards, or perhaps you aren’t that creative but still like the idea. Either way, I got your pack. I have a simple printable where I have the above affirmations listed in various fonts. If you don’t love your handwriting or are short on time, print a few printable pages and cut and paste them into your cards. (There are duplicate affirmations because I used three fonts to make it enjoyable). I even included a few watercolor backgrounds you can print and use, so you don’t have to get too creative. However, if you like the idea of doing brush lettering or regular writing, drawing, painting, or sketching cool background or images on your cards, have at it. It is a moment of self-care that focuses on bettering your thinking for yourself, your family, and your homeschool.
Supplies to Make Your Own Affirmation Cards
What you will need:
You most likely have all the supplies you need already in your home. If you don’t, a quick run to your local drugstore or office supply store should be able to supply you with all you need. However, I have included affiliate links to Amazon, where you can purchase everything you will need.

How to Make Affirmation Cards
What to do
- First, take a card and choose an affirmation from the list above or the printable.
- Then figure out if you want a background or not. If you want a printed background, you can cut one out and paste it onto the card, or print out the backgrounds on cardstock and cut them out, or you can draw one.
- Then, cut out or write the affirmation you chose onto the card.
- Finally, punch a hole onto the corner or side of your card and place it onto a binder rings. Create as many cards as you like.
