Places To Go This A Week


There is something magical about going to the airport even if your not flying out that day. It's fun to see the planes take off and land and if your a people watcher it's fun to watch people from all over the world. If it's a rainy day or you are unable to get to the airport. You can bring the airport to your home. Take your kitchen chairs and set them up next to each other for a pilot and co pilot then put two chairs behind them in an isle so that you have passengers. Grab your pretend steering wheel and have your child pilot the plane to far away land. Your flight attendent can even serve small drinks and snacks. If you live in a small town and don't have large airport nearby, you can go to the small airport and watch the little planes take off and land. Bring a picnic lunch and watch the planes and discuss the concept of airplanes and how they carry people from one place to another a lot faster than traveling in the car.

And as a last resort, you can stretch your arms out like an airplane and you be the airplane. Take a pretend trip to Disney, the beach or the mountains. Let your children decide where. Also, you can make paper airplanes and have them fly off the couch mountain or see whose plane can go the furthest.

Art Museum

To get in touch with your children's creative side take them to the Art Museum. Have them look at different pictures and ask them what they see in each picture. When they get home, let them be an artist and have them paint pictures of what they saw at the museum.


If you live near an aquarium, take your children there this week. Talk about creation and how God created all different types of fish. Every fish looks different just like all children look different but in God's eyes, all fish and all children are beautiful and He loves them all the same. If you don't have an aquarium near you, you can buy an aquarium and have the children pick out the fish and other items to put in it. If you don't want a new pet, you can go to the pet store and look at all the aquariums and discuss the different animals there.
