My kids have never been huge fans of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They would prefer either a cooked meal (Like mac and cheese. I know, I know…does that even count as a cooked meal?) OR they want deli meat and cheese. Not in a sandwich; just deli meat and cheese. So you can only imagine how much they adore Lunchables. In fact, just about every time we walk by the deli section of the grocery store, my kids beg me to buy them Lunchables. Since it is such a “treat” for them, I tend to leave the Lunchables for special occasions, like field trips. How perfect, then, that Lunchables Lunch Combinations is launching a new program called “Field Trips For All” to help deserving kids across the country go on inspiring, educational experiences?
“Field Trips For All” is the first part of the Lunchables Team’s new campaign called Project Potential. Project Potential’s goal is to empower kids with opportunities to help them reach their full potential by providing them with enriching experiences that they might not have otherwise. I love that when I focus on something (whatever that something is) it keeps popping up everywhere. I am focusing on the concept of Empowerment this month, and here is it again. Another way for us to Empower our children!
Why “Field Trips for All?”:
According to a 2009 report from The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over 30,000 schools across the US will eliminate field trips over the course of a school year. Field trips often provide enriching, meaningful instruction that can’t be experienced in the classroom.
How can you get involved?
Anyone (6 years and up) can nominate a deserving classroom by going to https://www.lunchables.com/potential/ and submitting a nomination. From those nominations, 50 classrooms will be selected to go on an educational field trip, like this “Alien Field Trip” that this group of kids got to attend.
I can still picture a particular field trip to an old mission in California (yes, my field trips were very different from the field trips that my kids get to attend in the DC area). After hearing multiple 5th graders proclaim, “This is the best field trip EVER!” as we toured the Washington DC monuments, I was convinced (again) how important field trips are for kids. What are some of the most memorable field trips that you or your kids have taken?
Do you know a special teacher or a class that is deserving of a field trip? Nominate them today by visiting https://www.lunchables.com/potential/.
