My answer: For sure. In fact, a very specific way comes to mind. During our year abroad, we’re hoping we can use our farmhouse as a central home base and travel to other parts of Europe or nearby regions. So Ben Blair assigned the kids to start researching where they’d like to go. He created a simple worksheet with entries that say: City, Country, Three things to see, Food to try, Image.
The kids take the worksheet, get on the computer or laptop or smart phone and start searching. For the image, they print their favorite touristy shot of the destination and paste it to the worksheet. Then, all the worksheets are compiled in a folder.
So far, they’ve researched Cairo, Venice, Copenhagen, London, Brussels, Berlin and Rome. I wonder how many we’ll be able visit? So exciting to think about!
What about you? What sorts of things would you do to get your kids excited for a big move? Also. Don’t you just love vintage travel posters? They make me smile.
