10 Reasons our children like homeschool Field Trips

Homeschooling allows us incredible opportunities for hands-on learning as a family.  For us, most of our hands-on learning opportunities come through field trips, both locally and across the USA.  Instead of my children experiencing field trips separately, we can experience them as a family.  We can also go on as many field trips as our budgets and time allow for.

Many homeschool families even take weekly field trips (usually on Fridays).  When our children were younger it was not uncommon for us to have 2-3 field trips a week! Who wouldn’t enjoy that?
