This summer my kids and I took a “trip” to Paris, France and we want you to join in the fun with our Paris France unit study we have put together below!
When I told my kids about my plans for us to take some fun pretend trips around the world in our homeschool they jumped up and down shouting and their voices went directly into those bubbly-quick-excited-squeaky voice types! They could not wait to get started! Most of the time we enjoy our homeschool but sometimes you need to switch things up and get out of a rut!
We had so much fun for so many weeks doing our mini unit studies on bees, butterflies, ladybugs, & praying mantises. Then we went back to the same old stuff and got board again. So here’s to some fun adventures ahead!!

Since my parents just took a real trip to London and Paris this summer we decide those would be our first 2 stops on our itinerary so that way the kids can enjoy some fun conversations with their grandparents about their travels!

Pretend to travel to Paris
DIY Cereal Box Suit Case
We created these fun DIY suitcases out of old cereal boxes. Post coming soon on how to make these.
We are using these fun flags from, Adventure in a Box to decorate our luggage with flags from all our fun travels around the world. The free printable is for a bingo game, but I cut them up and used them as flag stickers for their suitcases to remember their “travels” by.
To add to the fun we are using the super adorable and realistic looking Plane Trip Printables complete with airline tickets, baggage claim, and even wing badge and mini wing badges by Barley & Birch (here). My kids had so much checking in with me before their flight to Paris!! I have to admit I had fun too & felt official wearing my adorable wing badge!
Have a fun trip to Paris while reading the book, “A Walk In Paris” and watching my YouTube playlist here (A Walk In Paris) I made it to take you on the same path that the characters in the book take. My kids had such a great time doing this! This is how we began our unit study and it was a great introduction to Paris and it’s such a fun way to make your pretend travel come to life.
Postcard from Paris using my free printable Paris Postcards (here)
- Print the Paris Postcard on white card-stock paper using the two-sided option so that the postcard will have a front and a back.
This fun little postcard I made is a wonderful way for your kids to share what they learned about Paris with a grandparent, family member or friend who would be delighted to get an adorable postcard from your kids! We call them the “What I learned Postcards” because we use these postcards to end out our unit studies and share what was learned. I usually ask my kids to share their favorite part about the study and have them illustrate the front of the postcard with a picture inspired by it as well.
