Intentional Activity:

Watch Planes Takeoff & Land

Go to a local airport and park as close as you safely can to the runway. Bring a blanket or sit in the bed of a truck and watch the planes fly over head!

Airplanes look so much bigger up close and it is a thrill to see them fly right above you! Sit with your child and enjoy the incredible sights together.

Use this as a moment to intentionally start a conversation. Ask them where they would like to fly if they could go anywhere in the world. Or ask what they would like to see from the air instead of on the ground.

Take it a step further and pack a lunch for a picnic and make a date out of it! It will be a moment your child will remember for a long time.
