Using Netflix to Promote Kid's Summer Learning #StreamTeam #netflixkids

In my experience as a mom the key to summer learning is to never mention it is happening.  Words like "educational" and "historical" are strictly off limits.  One needs to simply roll with the fun and slide in a few scholastic tidbits without the kids even realizing it.  My main strategy is to work with the themes our summer dictates.  A visit to the zoo, a road trip to the Rocky Mountains out west, and a weekend excursion to Wisconsin all can become a springboard for summertime brain activities without the kids even realizing it.

A visit to Omaha and Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium


A couple weeks ago on our trek home from Colorado, we stopped over night in Omaha with 3 of the kids.  We stayed in the Hyatt Place Omaha located in the downtown Old Market area.  The location proved to have plenty of great dining choices within walking distance and looked equally perfect for those interested shopping at the multiple antique and vintage shops we spotted.  Plus it was only a couple miles from Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium which was our main reason for making the stop this year.
