Things to Do on a Free School Day (at School)

We had an optional day at school today and VERY few children showed up--now we're thinking of fun things to do!

Things to Do on a Free School Day (at School)

    1. Study WHAT YOU WANT!

    If you're interested in a field, go and look at it, see what you want to do, and make your own research!

    2. Go on a Hike!

    It's beautiful outside! We're going for a long, long walk.

    3. Write a long story.

    4. Go to lunch together at a restaurant

    5. Buy a book of their choice for each child here.

    6. Go visit the Lake!

    7. Write out ALL of our goals together, and have a talk about achieving them.

    8. Meditation session.
