Okay, so usually we’re all about inspiring family getaways and sparking curiosity from the world around us ... BUT, it looks like things will be a little different for the time being. While we’re all adjusting to the “new normal” of school and daycare closures, remote work, and pressing pause on playdates, we wanted to offer some tips to keep your family’s sense of adventure thriving.
Can’t see the sights in person? Enjoy them virtually.
Check out these virtual field trips to explore the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, visit Old Faithful, experience a taste of Mars, or even say hi to pandas!

This might also be the perfect time to try a new language with your kiddos. PBS offers online video lessons for all grade levels in Spanish, Japanese, French, German, and Chinese. If you’re looking to add some musical fun to your Spanish lesson, check out Basho & Friends – they’re offering free access through the 2020 school year!
Scholastic has you covered with their awesome learn at home curriculum that will keep your tiny humans thinking and growing.
This one’s important. Keep your junior humans (and you) moving with a math and fitness lesson, or family walks around the block!
While it feels like a curve ball has been thrown into our everyday lives, remember, we're all in this together. We encourage you to check in on loved ones and take all the safety measures needed to stay healthy during this time!
