For Mom and Dad, it’s a getaway. For the kids, it’s a field trip! With virtual learning becoming the new norm, it’s so much easier to plan a trip without having to pull the kids out of school. That’s why homeschooling from a vacation rental is a great idea! Before we dig into the details of why you should let the kids do their work from a vacation rental, make sure to request access to our free Finger Lakes Vacation Guide. This useful resource contains a list of all the best places to eat, drink, and enjoy the wonderful outdoors during your time in the Finger Lakes – socially distanced, of course! Get the guide and start planning out your field trip itinerary.
Here’s Why Homeschooling from a Vacation Rental is a Great Idea
Hands-On Learning Makes for the Best Field Trip
There’s so much history, culture, and art in the Finger Lakes. Your child is sure to love a trip to any of our local museums. Some of the Finger Lakes’ best children’s museums include the Strong National Museum of Play and the Corning Museum of Glass.
Strong National Museum of Play is a great place to not only let your young children run wild and play but also let their imagination run wild! They can experience unique hands-on exhibits like the butterfly garden.
Have an artistic little one? They’re sure to love the Corning Museum of Glass. Both the kids and the adults will find it fascinating to see the interactive glassblowing demonstrations. Plus, they can make something cool to bring home like a tumbler cup, ornament, or pendant!
The Recess and After-School Activities Portion of Homeschooling Are Fun
Let your child have a break from virtual classes in the most fun way possible. The Finger Lakes are a place to get a breath of fresh air and enjoy the great outdoors. After school, go for a hike to the most stunning waterfalls, kayak across our magnificent bodies of water, ski the thrilling slopes, or try ice fishing! You probably won’t be able to get this kind of recess or physical education at a public school! Plus, it’s not every day that the chaperones (parents) can enjoy this kind of fun, either!
