From Vacation to Field Trip in the Blink of an Eye

Doesn't everyone need a real vacation away from the books, jobs, phones, emails, and the neighbor's dog barking at 3:00 a.m.? Well, sure, but the real question is, do your kids need a vacation away from learning? The answer to that question is a resounding no! Do they have to realize that they're learning? Well, no again.

My article "Turn Any Vacation into a Field Trip" is posted on Heart of the Matter today. Go check out slew of sneaky ideas to make a learning opportunity out of any trip. Your kids will be having so much fun that they won't even notice that they're learning. Promise!

In a few weeks, our family will be putting these principles to the test as we visit Washington, D.C. Leave me a note letting me know where you're going (or have gone) on vacation and how you plan to turn your days into learning opportunities for your kids.
