Does anyone have any ideas for a Holiday field trip? It has to be something that I could set up pretty quickly. We got the school vans for next Thursday (Dec. 11). Unfortunately, our plan (which was originally approved) to go see Santa at the mall has been nixed because of it not being "inclusive" of all religions. I guess I partly understand, but all of my kids celebrate Christmas and no one would be offended. We were also going to learn about the other religions by looking at the other decorations that they have in the mall. Anyways, I'm trying to come up with a useful trip for the kids. My principal says we can go to the mall... but that's not that exciting. Especially if we don't get to see Santa. Any ideas? A couple years ago, when I worked in VA, we took a trip to Michael's Craft stores - they did a holiday craft as a field trip for kids. You had to take your shopping "list" to get the items from the store, and then they led a little craft in their "classroom." It was cute. The Michaels around here had no idea what I was talking about, so that was unfortunate. Any tips/thoughts/ideas would be appreciated.
