As the school season comes to an end, ESSENCE News Editor Wendy Wilson shares affordable, educational activities for children.
Family Trips with a Lesson
Rather than taking your child to an amusement park during the summer, ESSENCE News Editor Wendy Wilson suggests thinking more critically. Consider a family trip to a museum or the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, DC. A Grand Canyon adventure can even become a learning experience if your child writes a report about its history or weather patterns. "Your child is learning while enjoying the family time," says Wilson. "Make it fun for them."
