- Your child's room--you'd be shocked all the junk they have in there
I also try to think of cheap day trips we could make. Obviously you could go to the zoo if you're studying animals, but some other topics might be tricky. Another great idea is to put in a key word like "train" plus the name of your town into your favorite search engine. That's how I found out there's a toy train museum in my area--who knew???
So go get your materials--up next, actually teaching your child.
