With spring break just around the corner, the news has been reporting about how travel can educate your children in different ways. I found a blog post on the topic from http://www.sheknows.com which discusses research from the U.S. Department of Education’s finding on the topic in How vacations make kids smarter. The good news is that you do not have to travel far or spend a lot of money for your kids to benefit. Even experiencing a trip to a museum or a day at the beach, can benefit your child’s overall development. I am just glad it gives me another excuse to plan our next outing!
