Education, Crafts, Activities, Recipes and More... All in One Place!

March 23, 2020

Updated 4/14/2020 - Spending more time than usual at home with kids because of coronavirus concerns? Feeling a bit stir crazy? Looking for ideas of something to do as a family other than watch TV and play board games?

We're here for you! We've gathered together your "emergency kit" of crafts, STEM fun, and recipe ideas for at-home fun with kids -- most made with supplies you likely already have! There are also virtual field trips, online classes and more. Whatever we think you'll find useful, we'll add a link here.
