    Free Online Events and Activities for Kids at Home

    Provide some structure and schedule to your family's day (updated regularly). By Frannie Ucciferri 
    Free Online Events and Activities for Kids at Home

    Thanks to the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the 2019 coronavirus, it feels like everything is getting canceled. Schools are closed, sports and performing arts are postponed, and field trips are out of the question. And for many parents who are practicing social distancing with their kids at home, finding ways to break up the day and give kids a sense of routine has been a real challenge. One of the silver linings is that authors, artists, musicians, and creators of educational tools are stepping up to offer free lessons, tours, and concerts that you can check out from the safety of your home. 

    Whether you want easy lesson plans from Scholastic, a living room concert from John Legend, or a drawing lesson from Mo Willems, there's no shortage of fun things to do online. We even have tools to help you find free or reduced-cost internet in your area. So check out this list of resources and events (we'll be updating it as new things are announced).
