See the World
Museums and zoos across the globe have closed their doors, but you can still see inside with a virtual tour of some of the most famous art and science collections in the world:
Webcams are also a great way to escape your living room. See the critters of the San Diego Zoo (zoo.sandiegozoo.org/live-cams), Monterey Bay Aquarium (www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/live-cams), Zoo Atlanta (zooatlanta.org/panda-cam/), the Houston Zoo (www.houstonzoo.org/explore/webcams/) and the Georgia Aquarium (www.georgiaaquarium.org/webcam/ocean-voyager/) from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
Get your craft on
Michaels craft store has added DIY ideas and videos to its projects page and will host Facebook LIVE broadcasts for family-fun activities at noon CDT every Wednesday. Learn more at www.michaels.com/.
Teach your kids how to measure flour, make homemade gummies and more on the kid cooking website www.kidstir.com. The site was offering free kids’ cooking kits at the start of the week, but even without a kit, it offers plenty of free printable games, activities and recipes for young foodies.
Work it out
Movement is important for kids, especially when they’ve been stuck at home. Guide them through some stretching and activities at Cosmic Kids Yoga
