How the State Fair of Texas Can Help You TEACH Your Children

We were fortunate to attend the State Fair of Texas in Dallas last year (prior to COVID19) and we were VERY excited to experience this event. From the State Fair Midway and the barns (where they are preparing their livestock for show) and cultural experiences to shopping and creative arts experiences, you can experience almost everything that the state has to offer!

State Fair of Texas attendees travel from each corner of the state and beyond to attend this annual event.

We are all about learning and we use the State Fair of Texas materials to teach learning throughout the year (especially in the summer). Here are a few State Fair of Texas items that YOUR family can incorporate this summer!
