Wonderment: Road Trip

Photos by Erin Austen Abbott “$1.99 < Free”

Exploring wonderment and sharing that with your children is one of the most magical things you could give to them. I snapped this cotton candy picture while at a truck stop while we were on a road trip from Mississippi to Texas. I had a pink cloud photo that I had taken previously on a different road trip that I knew I wanted it to pair with.

A few ways that we look for wonderment when on a road trip:

Cloud spotting.

Look out the window for things to point out to your child that they have never seen before.

Stop at roadside attractions.

Take a route you’ve never taken before, just for fun.

Get your child a disposable camera and let them take pictures through the window.
