I know “Vacation Season” is coming up, though many of us homeschoolers tend to vacation Off-Season! We did this last fall, with a trip to the Dominican Republic (where my husband’s family is from)! While there, I brainstormed this series, though I’m just now getting around to sharing it with you!
Part 5 of this post can be found here.
Here are some of the educational aspects we incorporated into our trip to the Dominican Republic.
After Your Trip:
1. Laundry – I’ve never returned from a trip without a mountain of laundry to do. Might as well use the opportunity to learn a life skill, right?
2. Sleep – Reentry is never easy on anyone. Getting back on a regular sleep schedule right away is the only thing I’ve known to help. Use this as an opportunity to talk to your kids about the importance of sleep, but also giving each other grace as you all get through this time.
3. Technical skills – If your kids are old enough, this might be a great time to show them how to upload and edit pictures from your trip. Won’t it be great when they can do this for you in the future?
4. Journaling – Let the kids decorate cute journals or scrapbooks and then make sure they write their memories down!
5. Follow up on any new interests you discovered on your trip!
What other suggestions would you share?
