Prepping Kids for a Road Trip – Road trips are a great way to spend family time. There is always something new to see, an exciting adventure to enjoy together, and wonderful family memories to make. As a home school family we like to combine the two because educational opportunities are everywhere and in everything we do. Sometime’s we’re home to do our studies, but very often we are on the road, learning and experiencing the world. After all, there’s no school to teach how to cross a boarder, how to understand customs in other cultures and how to be respectful of all people, places, and cultures. So, to gain the most from our experiences, we always prep our kids for a road trip, allowing them to become familiar with an area before visiting.

4 Tips to get Your Kids Outdoors

I’m Kat Haas with Kat Haas Outdoors and there’s no place I’d rather be than enjoying nature!
