Making Learning A Key Ingredient to Your Family Vacation

Posted on 07-16-2015 | Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies of West Frisco & Legacy West

Now is the time when families are embarking on vacations together to make great memories! Whether you’re taking a train, plane, or automobile to reach your vacation destination there are always opportunities to make your vacation a fun and educational experience for your preschooler or school age child.

Here are some ideas for creating an educational vacation:

1. Include your child in the trip-planning process. Show your children some pictures or, if they can read, provide them with some informational brochures about your destination. Browse the websites of potential places to visit and ask them what interests them and what they would like to do while on vacation. When children sense they are involved with event planning, it usually gets them more excited to participate!

2. Find educational apps to beat backseat/flight boredom – Many children travel with phones or iPads to keep them occupied and they love trying new aps and games! Spend time with your spouse choosing apps you think would be helpful, interesting, and age-appropriate for your child. You can even surprise your children with these apps as a vacation gift right before leaving! Remember, many airlines allow electronic devices to be used during flight but you may not have Wi-Fi access so be sure to download the apps before boarding.

3. Savor the flavors of your vacation destination! – Even with a picky eater in tow, you can find opportunity to expand the palate by trying a local specialty food. You may get some grumbling from your preschooler who will only eat A-B-C type foods, but it’s worth taking the risk and soaking in the culture. You can learn a lot about a destination from its local menu.

However you spend your family vacation this year, whether you have school-age children, an infant, or a preschooler, it’s always a great idea to include them in your planning and make it a fun adventure that will be enjoyed by everyone.
