Since we’ve started homeschooling our children, my husband and I have realized how great it is to be right where we are. We are in Pennsylvania, specifically just outside Philadelphia. All around us are historic locations waiting to be explored. Plus many more locations well within driving distance.
As we were walking between benches, we happened upon a chance for our littles to enlist in the continental army. This free program on the street lasted about 45 minutes, but completely kept my littles’ attentions. The army personnel were lively and entertaining. My little soldiers lined up, marched, worked a musket, and received certificates as full-fledged recruits signed by the Commander in Chief. My boys were in their element, but watching my little girl participate was hilarious! If you happen upon this chance, don’t miss out!
How about you? What’s fun to do near your home? We’d love to hear about your adventures and add your fun ideas to our long travel wish list!
