Family Field Trips

Whether you have a weekend or summer stretched out in front of you, kids will have a blast taking a family field trip. Make it a surprise, or have them help pick a location. Research travel books for your city, or search online for recommended outings. Kids can prep for the trip by reading books related to the outing. Have your child create a journal for the trip (with room for collected items). Have questions ready and enjoy!
