It’s time to start planning those summer vacations, and as we’re all looking for ways to cut back on our spending a bit, a visit to one of our national parks might be the perfect choice. At the National Parks Service web site on the park fun guide page there are lots of learning activities and printables to download. There are quizzes, puzzles, online stories, printable coloring books, interactive games, and lots more.

The Parks Service also has a “WebRanger” program where kids can sign up and earn a badge for working through 50 learning activities.
