Why do we love to share amazing facts for kids?
It really is the same answer to the question: Why do we love to Travel?
There is a thrill learning about the world, and fantastic facts make you go WOW!
It is hard to describe the feeling of new places, experiences that are different to those that are familiar. I particularly love discovering new facts or information about different places. It’s like ‘wow I never knew that!”
Before a trip I love reading about what we will see, and then after the trip there is always more reading to do as you delve more deeply into facts about the place you now love. Learning new information about countries is profoundly fascinating. There are so many moments when I feel like I am falling in love with the world all over again.
The world is simply awesome, its places, and people! I love sharing this joy of discovery with my kids with my travel. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I decided to put together a series of kid’s fun facts. Obviously the word “fun” is pretty important – I wanted to keep it light and funny so that kids would enjoy the learning.
Let’s get rolling… what are some fun facts for kids about the world?
