Craftsman Crate and Raising Real Men, founded by Hal & Melanie Young, exists to help families with homeschooling and parenting in practical ways.

Craftsman Crate, the subscription box that builds your skills, teaches artisanal craft skills using real tools in totally complete crates – no trips to the store! Use as a high school or middle school art curriculum or to add a hands-on component to your history studies.

The resources we carry for struggling, gifted, and different learners are the things we used with our own children, featuring materials by Dianne Craft.

Our character-building classic books and audiobooks will make literature and history come alive for your children and inspire kids to love reading.

For help with the holidays, check out our holiday series and devotionals – they’ll help you make wonderful memories as you teach your children about the holidays.

Learn more about teaching and parenting your kids with resources like Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching, and Appreciating Boys, No Longer Little (about teaching and parenting middle schoolers), Love, Honor, and Virtue (about sexuality for boys 12 and up) and all our other great resources.
