Remember the feeling of going on a school field trip? And if you have children, I’m sure that your kids now are as excited in going. Everything about going on school field trips is a win-win situation, teachers get to teach their students in a very hands-on experience while kids don’t even realize they are learning while having fun. Unfortunately, this tradition is slowly going away. The IL School Board Journal has indeed stated that some school districts had cut back on field trips due financial woes.
So when Lunchables came up with the Ultimate Field Trips program as part of their Project Potential Initiative, I jumped on board. They provided me with a $150 MasterCard Gift Card to design my own field trip and so I did exactly that.
Being that I have to satisfy 3 kids with different interests, we decided to hit Navy Pier. They have rides, movies, restaurants, and the Chicago Children’s Museum. Take a look at how much fun had! Also, do keep reading for the surprise below.
And guess what? Lunchables is also nice enough to provide me with 9 more of the $150 MasterCard Gift Cards to give out to you, our Chicagonista readers and design your own family field trips!
Simply leave a comment below on how you would like to design your ultimate family’s field trip and I will randomly choose and contact the 9 winners thru email by the May 20th. You can also help other families by tweeting or facebooking this post out. It is not necessary to tweet or facebook, but it is much appreciated!
