Learning All Around

Summer is only one week in and I have already had a chance to go on an adventure! Sometimes it is easy to forget that summer is not just about taking a break from the day to day school routine but it can also be about taking advantage of the learning opportunities all around our local area. There are so many interesting and great activities in this area that your child will not only enjoy but will learn from and remember for years to come.

I had the chance to spend a day with my Dad for a late Father's day and we visited the Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls. We had a great time and I recommend it as a fun family activity!

So here are a few of the things that are local and great for families see if you can check off any of the following on your list, or add some new ones to mine, I have added links if possible.
