Printable Travel Bingo Cards

Road trip season is coming and if you are preparing to hit the open road with your family, you will need to bring along some entertainment like these printable travel Bingo cards.  You can probably imagine that traveling with 4 boys isn’t always a walk in the park for me.  In fact, sometimes I feel as though I can’t even make it to the grocery store with my boys without almost losing my mind.    Road trips can get loud and chaotic if I’m not prepared with something for them to do, especially when you are enclosed in a vehicle and you can’t get away from the noise! Printable Travel Bingo Printable Travel Bingo is fun because it can keep kids entertained while they look out the window instead of just staring at a screen the entire time you are driving.  Use candy as the game pieces or laminate your Bingo cards and use a dry-erase marker to keep track of the items that your kids spot.

Every Kid in a Park: Free National Park Pass for 4th Grade Students

We love visiting the beautiful National Parks in our area and I am so excited to see that the National Parks Foundation is offering a free National Parks pass to all 4th graders and their families for the 2015/2016 school year as a part of the Every Kid in a Park initiative. Every Kid in a Park I grew up in Utah where we had some of the most beautiful National Parks within a day’s drive, including Zion, Bryce and Arches.  It’s amazing to me that you can drive a few short hours and find some of the most strikingly different landscapes.   The main goal of the Every Kid in a Park initiative is to get 4th grade students and their families outside and able to enjoy the nature that is found in the mountains, forest, and lakes within our National Parks.  […]
