Tips & Tricks: Field Trip Fun

We have found an amazing homeschool group in our area that does field trips at least 1-2 times a month and weekly play dates. Thanks to our group we’ve gone to the zoo, Sea Center Texas and strawberry picking so far. I am even scheduling a new field trip to the local equestrian center so all the kiddos can learn first hand how a barn operates and the care that goes into having horses.


If you’re in a homeschool group, a good way to save money is buddy up with people who have memberships to where y’all are going. When we went to the zoo another mom got us in for free with her membership. Field trips don’t just have to be going to a place to learn about what they do. Homeschooling on the road can a mini field trip itself. Finishing up our first week of homeschooling this year we were actually at the beach. After completing school for the day our daughter got to go down to the shore for fishing, ocean views and sand castle building.


Some fun field trip ideas are:
  • Zoo
  • Beach
  • Recycling center 
  • Post office 
  • Dairy farm
  • Chicken hatchery 
  • Crocodile encounter
  • Fire department 
  • Equestrian center

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
