Summertime is a great time for the whole family to unwind a little from the pressures of the school year. However, letting kids do absolutely nothing educational for the entire summer can cause big problems when it is time to hit the books again. These summer day trips can keep it light and fun, while sneaking some education into your elementary aged child’s life.
Explore the History in Your Area
Every area has history that can be explored, whether in the form of historic homes, sites where important events happened, or even museums dedicated to local history. Taking kids to these sites is a fun way to educate them about the area and will keep them reading as they look over the plagues and information. Try to select some places that have kid friendly activities, such as making food from the colonial days or trying games leftover from bygone eras.
