If you’re planning a family vacation, bring your child into the planning process. She will practice budgeting, research and reading skills, and being involved with the planning process will make her feel like she’s making big vacation decisions (how exciting!).
To start, decide where you’re going to go and what your budget will allow.
Give your child 2-3 potential vacation spots and have her research the potential costs of each location. Ask her to read reviews, check the landmarks or cities you will be traveling through, and create a presentation about what she’s learned.
Making weekends fun and educational is easier than you might think. The best part: you’ll be spending quality time together as a family.
