Question Ideas: Before the trip, have each child make up Q&A cards for themselves on index cards. The subject can be whatever subject they are trying to learn. Parents can make cards for little children. These cards are used in the paper games. Or while on the trip, hand out index cards and have the children write on their card, using their own names: ‘Joe’s favorite food’, ‘Joe’s favorite color’, ‘Sue’s best talent’, ‘Mom’s best dessert’, and so on. Everyone then has to write their answer on the back of each question card. Use these cards in the board games as a form of Get to Know You. Parents can even make up cards in the hotel at night about the places the family visited that day and what they learned.

Secondly, most people fitness evolution projects less daunting and easier to get started on. They also find them easier to plan out and take ownership of.
Maybe your child isn’t into the cowboy look. Another inexpensive look may be a Wizard with a long cloak, pointy hat and fake beard. Cloth can be found at any inexpensive thrift store or fabric store for just a few dollars a yard. A piece of poster board rolled into a cone shape and covered in fabric would work nicely for a Wizard cap, and wouldn’t be too heavy on the child’s head. A clean, dry, stringy mop head would give the perfect look for a Wizard’s beard. If you choose to add a wand, a yard stick will do. You may also be able to find a small plastic one from a toy store in your location.
