Build a Dream Vacation Box
Though the world is now a familiar place for geographers, that doesn't mean the world is familiar to kids! Where would your child go if he could travel anywhere he wanted? Would he want to be someplace warm, or does he love snow? Does he dream of the ocean or trekking up in the mountains? What if he could go to a place where he could watch volcanoes erupt?
Whatever your child's dream place is, he can find information about it by searching on the Internet, looking for books at the library, and picking up brochures from travel agents. With a little planning, you could make it there someday. Until then, he can dream and collect all the things he can find about this place in a special box to look through from time to time until his dream becomes a reality.

- Acrylic craft paint
- Images from magazines, books, brochures, or from the Internet that relate to the dream place
