Well, clearly, the 15 things were not at all comprehensive, and some are unique to my homeschool. More than one person reminded me that a kitchen is a good idea. Heh. Yes. Much unschooling goes on in the kitchen! A garden is also indispensable, but any backyard (or even a fire-escape) can be made into an unschooling space...even if you do no landscaping at all. I do have another page of backyard suggestions here.
Helen suggested I add arts and crafts. Ah, if only I were craftier! Alas, while I do have a few fun standard crafts I have done (paper-making, paper lanterns, dipped candles...) I am the least crafty unschooler on the planet. Those who knit amaze me. Those who quilt are beyond my feeble comments. And the same goes for any number of craft skills that take more than an hour or two. But, yes, crafts--especially useful ones--provide perfect and natural unschooling moments.
Kimberlee would have me add tea, and I agree...but I am not a tea fan. If you are, by all means, make tea a ritual in your unschooling life. For me, it's coffee. And I do love coffee. Without it there would not be any homeschooling of any kind going on. And in the evening? Wine. Or a margarita. Ah. Yes. And if you visit, I will share a glass with you and wax eloquent about unschooling.
She also suggests silence, and I agree. And making a fire using flint and steel. Sure! Or a bow drill! But hey, I figured the list was just basics. We can get into specifics as we get to know each other better. But Kimberlee knows me pretty well by now. Do visit her amazing blog. And crafty? Her blog is a place to find beauty.
If I could add one more thing, it would be...a camera. Many tablet and phone devices have cameras, but invest in a good one, and keep it with you. These days of digital imaging make photography more affordable, so investing in a high end camera is a good idea.
