Planning activities for the kids’ Christmas break with no ideas what do to? Getting Christmas gifts but low on cash for R&R for the kids? Why not visit a National Park?

With more than 400 national parks and thousands of historic and recreational lands there are endless ways to find your unique connection and save money during the holidays. The National Park Service and the National Park Foundation are inviting people to Find Your Park.

The idea is to connect with a park and share your story by using #findyourpark. Kids can even take a Flat Stanley along for a photo op and share their story. Flat Stanley is a literacy project that encourages kids to write about their travels. To learn more about the Flat Stanley project visit http://www.flatstanley.com.
