Another Travel Tip

I shared my vast and  profound {cough, snort, guffaw} traveling-with-small-children knowledge back in the fall. 

This past weekend I accidentally found another great tip and thought I'd share it with you.  We had the privilege to attend a home school convention on the other side of our state and The Reader had prepared a list of the states prior to leaving so he could play the License Plate game.  Problem was....he left the list at home.

I pulled out my daily planning calendar, which has maps of the country and world in the back of it, and handed it back to The Reader.  He put a check in a state every time he saw a license plate from that state....AND he worked on his geography and state location at the same time.  Double win.

No more lists for us - I'll bring copies of the map of the U.S. from now on.


  1. Good idea! And they are learning without really realizing they are!!

  2. That is a great idea! Must remember! My daughter likes maps anyways!


I love to hear your thoughts and reflections!
