For many of us, the sudden and unexpected shift to working remotely now means that our new co-workers are a little louder and messier than before (or maybe not). For all of the hardworking parents out there, we’d like to share some ideas and tips that our own staff is using for working from home with kids during the coronavirus pandemic.

1. In-Home Safari

While the Cincinnati Zoo is closed, they are running a Home Safari Live each weekday at 3 PM ET where they highlight one of their amazing animals and include an activity you can do from home.

2. Virtual Storytime

The Brooklyn Library (and many other libraries across the country) are holding virtual programming, including storytime and game time via Facebook Live and Zoom.

3. Science Is Fun

Mystery Science is a site that is typically a paid site for educators. During this time, they have pulled some of their most popular science lessons and are offering them for anyone to use for free. No account or login is needed.

4. Lunch Doodles with Mo

Mo Willems is the author of the Elephant and Piggy series and several other well-known children’s books. Each day at 1:00 PM ET, learners worldwide can join Mo as he brings them into his studio to learn how to draw and doodle in new ways.

5. Pinterest

Stay safe. Stay inspired. Keeping kids busy.

6. Highlights

Keep Learning at Home with Highlights. Lots of fun activities.

7. Virtual Rides from Disney

While Disney World & Disneyland Are Closed, Take Your Kids On Virtual Rides

8. Get Moving with Healthy Screen Time

Cosmic Kids offers kid-sized Yoga classes and is available on YouTube or Amazon Prime Video.

While we all adjust to this new norm, we hope that you found some of these resources to be helpful.
