Homeschool Field Trips

I'm excited to have found a very active homeschool "field trip" type group on facebook. It will give my kids a chance to hang out with other kids and see places we have never been or discover something new about a favorite place. Maybe make a lifetime friend. You just never know.

As my kids are getting older, the trips take on different shapes. Before we used to go to the West Side Market to just be exposed to all the sights and smells. Slowly, they started asking questions about the different foods and the nationalities behind them. Now when we go, they get some money to spend and they have to make choices about how to spend it and keep count of their money. As they get older, I'll give them a recipe to gather ingredients for and then they will have to cook it.

What about you? What places do you visit and how have those visits changed as your child grows? What was your favorite "field trip" and why?

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    I think that you need to write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about these issues.

    To the next! All the best!!
