Millions of families around the world are home with their children, protecting themselves and others while we isolate from COVID 19. Although children are out of school educational institutions are encouraging families to continue the learning at home.

Teachers have done what they always do, work incredibly hard for our children; I am sure you already have resources that have been sent directly to you from your individual schools.
I have put together a number of additional resources below to supplement what your educators have already shared. At the end of this blog you will also find a link to another blog that offers many resources on long distance entertainment from aquariums to zoos! I hope you find something fun to do together. Stay well and healthy everyone!
