Field Trips For Preschoolers: Field Trip Factory

Written By: Brittany Lewis

Since many parents have been “homeschooling” their preschoolers for the better part of a year since the pandemic started, many mothers and fathers have been racking their brains trying to figure out what they can do to keep their young children entertained while also trying to educate them. 

There are many homeschooling groups all over the country now that go on field trips together. Homeschooling isn’t like it used to be, with children being more secluded and not getting much interaction. 

In many instances nowadays, homeschoolers get more interaction than children that attend school all day long. Preschool is the perfect age to experiment with homeschooling if this is something that your family is considering. 

One of the main concerns for a parent that might be considering homeschooling is limited interaction. In this article, I wanted to mention several great field trips for preschoolers that can be easy and exciting!

1. The Fire Station

Whether you live in a large city or a small town, everyone has a fire station. When I was young, I loved going to the fire station and sliding down the fire pole and climbing in the fire trucks. 

Many fire stations will let you plan a trip to visit, and many firefighters love spending time with young, very excited children who want to learn all about becoming a firefighter. 

2. The Farm

Many cities have museums and aquariums, and many rural places have farms. 

About an hour away from where I live, there is a large farm that offers hayrides, and the people that work there often put on small shows, showing children how to do various things on a farm. 

Some farms will let you go there for free to look at and feed the animals, and usually, when things like shows and hayrides are being offered, the admission isn’t costly. 

3. The Library

You can’t get any more classic than your local library! This is where many mothers meet each other, and many children meet their very first friends at the library. 

When my daughter was a toddler, I brought her to the library every chance I had. We did storytimes, went to movie nights and arts and craft days. 

I met so many other mothers with young children there, and we ended up forming our own “mother’s group” and started bringing our children on various field trips together. 

Your local library is a great place to meet people, and it’s completely free. 

4. The Children’s Museum

Many major cities have a children’s museum. Adults can sometimes end up having just as much, if not more fun at a children’s museum than the kids! 

The admission usually doesn’t cost that much, and many museums have cafe’s in them so you can have lunch and spend the whole day there. 

These are just a few ideas for field trips for preschool-aged children. You can do many other things, like the aquarium, pottery painting places, and so on. 

Many places such as bakeries and pizza places will also let you plan a trip to view how things are made and ask questions, and some pizza places might even let your child make their pizza. 

Whether you choose to homeschool your child, or you are just looking for some fun and exciting new things to do as a family on weekends, there are plenty of places you can visit and plenty of people that would love to talk with your children about how things are made, and various tasks around the community are completed.
