Fun links for your time at home:

  • Travel to Bryce Canyon with this awesome link.
  • The Smithsonian Institute has a ton of cool virtual tours.
  • Unless you’ve been taking break from all social media, you’ve likely seen “Some Good News,” a weekly broadcast by John Krasinski of The Office fame. You can find it on Facebook, but I think accessing new episodes on YouTube is better. Are you a Hamilton fan? If so, you CANNOT MISS this video of the original cast singing for a young fan. Did I cry? You bet.
  • Play at Home hosts “recess” three times every weekday on their Facebook page. Check out the link for some examples of their work, and then hop over to their Facebook page to join the fun!
  • Looking for something to calm your family members down? The Monterey Bay Aquarium posts guided “MeditOceans” featuring their critters.
  • Do you have a budding filmmaker in your house? Check out Pixar in a Box, a behind-the-scenes look at how Pixar artists do their job.
  • Do you have a space-crazy camper? Take this virtual tour of the International Space Station.
  • Here’s a link to the Giant Panda Cam at the National Zoo. Try and catch the feeding time, it is when they are most active.
  • Are your kids missing the Island? The Catalina Island Conservancy has some great “learning from home” resources.
  • There are tons of resources available on various national parks websites. Here’s a great virtual tour of the Kenai Fjords in Alaska.
  • And in case you haven’t already heard, Audible is offering hundreds of titles free of charge as long as schools are closed. They even have stories in different languages, so if your kids are studying another language this could be a big help!
