An Instagram from the week that has been:


Nothing screams fun like playing in the real thing, (with slight modifications like the engine being taken out so the helicopter blades to go into a whirlwind at a press of a button).

This week, we took learning on the road. We braved a six hour road trip to Canberra and visited the Australian War Memorial as well as Floriade. As the hashtag in the instagram says, too much fun.

Field trips require more effort, but certainly have a valuable place in learning and family life. The wonderful thing about the Kids’ Co-op is that we can see how families all around the world do their thing. Here are four different field trips from last weeks’ Kids’ Co-op, each from a different part of the world. Enjoy being inspired!
