The other night I asked my friends what their most memorable activity as a child was. To my surprise this post to a complete 180 turn. While I was looking for activity ideas I was given memory after memory of time spent with parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Take advantage of homeschooling to make memories that will last a lifetime.
Make memories with your homeschooler
From walks on a fishing peer to summer-long camping trips touching memory after memory was shared with me. With thought, I came to a conclusion. It’s not about what we do with our kids but the memories we create. One on time with your child. Extra time doing things like walking by the lake or family camping trips. Those are the things at mater.
Spending time with your kids. Talking to them about everyday lives, interests and even Frozen… again. Each time you take a moment to spend with them and get to know each child a little better makes a huge difference and builds the kind of memories they will think back on into adulthood.
I found myself smiling as people in their 50s and 60s reminisced not on a trip to Disney but, a simple walk night of stargazing with friends and family. We as parents in this day and age struggle to create all of these fun activities and lavish play dates in effort to build great childhood memories. Only years from now your child won’t remember all the work you put into that frozen party complete with homemade rock candy ice crystals. Not they will remember walking down the road singing “Let it go” at the top of your lungs together.
Here are some great field trips to make memories
