Remember when I recommended that homeschoolers should take the week of Thanksgiving off so they have time to prepare for feasting and guesting on Thanksgiving Day? Well, when you're planning to leave for the whole week, you need to take 2 weeks off!
However, we can't spare that much time away, so we do the next best thing. Teach the kids to sew, and to shop using coupons, and to make cookies. And call it Home Economics 101.
Learning to make a packing list and pack your clothing efficiently is also part of the lesson.
And don't forget clean-up!
