Involve the kids in the planning
Ask your children what special things they want to do on vacation. Write down their ideas and let them know that their enjoyment is a main reason for taking a vacation.
Incorporate travel books, brochures, the internet, and maps to give your children a visual of places to visit. Reviewing the media is educational in itself.
Mix education and fun
Choose a destination that balances educational adventures and fun.
Do educational things
Be sure to visit museums and culturally significant sites. Review daily activities and discuss new things they learned, or you learned, in casual conversation.
Take pictures along the way and review them after returning home.
Think about yourself
Satisfy your own vacation needs. Schedule time to relax, read a book, or enjoy a nice dinner.
