This post has a really great collection of ideas to do with kids – no matter if you are homeschooling or not! Some great ideas for books to read as well.
The only problem with this post is that I suffer from a massive anxiety attack reading it, known as “guilt induced homeschooling inadequacy”. I read that they are doing things like making notebooking pages and putting stamps in their passports and I think “that’s so cool! We should be doing that! Why aren’t we doing that?” And then I remember that the reason we aren’t doing that, is because I’m too busy actually planning a real trip to France where they will have to use their real passports and visit the actual Eiffel tower. Guilt semi-purged.
Still – anytime this life time, I should really put together a list of the books we have read (and *ahem* DVDs we have watched) in preparation for the trip. Just don’t hold your breath… I still have to book our accommodation in France first!
