The following is a guest post written by Kara Anderson of The Very Next Thing.
Last year, my husband and I sat down to look at our finances and were not exactly shocked to see that we wouldn’t be heading to Spain for a family vacation.
But he had some time off available, and we wanted to spend it having a family adventure. It was around that time that his parents invited us to Wisconsin Dells — the land of wax museums, T-shirt shops and waterslides.
That sounded like a terrific get-away. But as homeschoolers, we like our vacations to offer educational opportunities too.
My husband and I often say that if we had the time and resources, we would be tourschoolers – traveling the globe as a family and learning along the way.
And so, we challenged ourselves to tourschool our way through our Wisconsin visit.
Since then, we’ve taken other family trips, and have realized that if you approach your vacation, long weekend or holiday travel with a solid plan, any trip can be both educational and fun.
