Ideas for Family Fun

In our ever connected world, we sometimes forget to connect with those we’re closest to!

For our 8th grade Family Advocacy project, the kids are going to research some ideas for a family field trip here in Shanghai. Then, they’ll come up with their three favorite options, present them to their family, and decide as a group which one they’re going to do.

Here are some resources to get the ideas started. I’ve lived here for almost ten years, and I had no idea some of these places even existed! So many great options out there… why limit yourself to one? Try and make this a monthly (or even weekly!) tradition.

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do or see but haven’t had the time? Well now, it’s homework… so that means you have to do it!

Have fun, and don’t forget to take pictures!
