I recently made the decision to Home school my 3 year old until Kindergarten in 2 years. At that point he will go to the local school for Kindergarten and beyond. I made the decision because 1) I don’t need a daycare AND Preschool bill and 2)because of Daycare 3 days/week and 2 teen brother’s, he is very social and I have no concerns there. He gets a less intense preschool at his daycare and I want to reinforce that at home. I do work M-Th and have Fri-Sun off. I plan to use 20 minutes a day (or night on my workdays while brother is doing his homework) by using the Teach My Preschooler program this year and I will pick a different one next year.
Where I would like some help is that on Fridays I am off and the older boys are at school/work and my husband works. Traditionally I use Fridays to run errands/go somewhere fun with just my 3 year old and I would like to continue that tradition! I would love some ideas of not only places to visit with him, but how I can use that “field trip” to teach him something new and educational. I live about an hour from Seattle and so we tend to do more indoor rather than outdoor activities. I know of many places to go, but lack the creativity to turn it into and educational trip on a 3 year old level.
I really want a lot of good ideas and will post on the weekends our “Friday Field Trip” Adventures. To entice all to pass the word and help me out, I am deciding to offer the all popular Coupon Insert Giveaway. Next Sunday 9/11 (man that will be one day of remembrance, I almost hate even typing that date!) I will purchase 3 additional papers and send those inserts to one lucky winner from Random.org.

Thank you!! I was not compensated for any mention of Teach My. Actually, I won the program on a giveaway and was so excited about it because I have done some research and really liked the Teach My aspect. This Giveaway will end at 11:59pm PST on Friday 9/16. Winner will be chosen by Random.org and will be emailed by me.
