Emily writes: Try to visit some places that let your kids learn more about their special interests. If they love dinosaurs, go to a natural history museum or an actual site where archeologists found dinosaur fossils. If they love the great outdoors, visit some place with a different landscape than you have at home and I bet they'll love discovering all the new-to-them plants, animals and bugs! Keep in mind that just traveling to a new place presents plenty of learning opportunities for kids. You don't have to cram in lessons, just look for places along the way that they'll have fun exploring.
