Hi everyone!! I live in a small town(only about 11,000 people) and there is literally no place to take my children for field trips. We've been to the library, that's the only place to take them. I have a 2nd grader and 4th grader. My town has 1 grocery store, like 5 gas stations but nothing else to go see and do. The next town away we have to plan to go to because it's that far away.It's not a place to go to that often. Any ideas of what I could do? Thanks in advanced!!!
Is there a police department, fire station, clinic etc that might be willing to have employees talk to your kids for 15-20 min and do a short tour? Have you talked to other mother's who have kids in school, where do they go?
Can you do a nature field trip with a scavenger hunt or a leaf hunt?
Are there any businesses in the area that might allow tours? Automotive, power plant, manufacturing?
Post Office, Courthouse (Just call ahead, and it should be free for a tour) Nature Walks, Simple play at the park days. Go identify the different leaves on trees, collect different rock types. Go on a picnic and nature photography walk. You can literally do hundreds of things just outside in the woods :)
