3. Encourage them to keep a journal of your trip.
If you really want to experience educational trips, document your memories as a family and have your kids keep a journal throughout your trip. If they are young they will work on their writing, spelling and reading skills. If they are older they can perfect their creative thinking, vocabulary and ability to express themselves. Your kids will share their impressions of the trip in a way that you can save and reflect on for years to come.
