Here are a few more worthwhile ideas for your family I thought you would enjoy. They are from the New Jersey State Museum…ENJOY!!!
- Any Day is “VIRTUAL” Art Making Day. We couldn’t have our Art Making Day at the Museum but our Asst. Curator of Science Education Dr. Diane Watson and her assistants created videos of our make-and-take projects you can do at home. Post a picture of your finished crafts on our Facebook or Instagram pages with the hashtags #NJSMArtMakingDay #NJMakersDay or #NJSMatHome
- Visit our website and social media pages. We’ll be updating our various pages as we can with facts, virtual programs and information that you can use. You can see the trailers for some of our planetarium shows on our website. A few have teacher’s guides linked so you can create a learning experience at home.
- Small Explorers comes to you! We invite you to join us for Small Explorers from your home. Starting March 28, our wildly popular program for families with children ages birth to five will be presented virtually. Visit our Facebook event to join or visit our website for more details
- Take a virtual trip. Many destinations have virtual tours. Visit Yellowstone National Park, the Louvre in Paris, the Statue of Liberty, the National Aquarium and the Houston Zoo all in one day from the comfort of your own home. This website has a great list of virtual tours you can explore
- Bake a treat. Whether your skills can rival an expert pastry chef or you’re looking for something fun to distract the children, baking is a great way to pass the afternoons. Bonus: Your home smells fantastic and your belly will be satisfied
- Take a walk. If you can safely take a walk while following appropriate social distancing recommendations, enjoy the signs of spring that are beginning to sprout. It’s a wonderful way to fight off cabin fever. Remember, keep your distance from others and wash your hands as soon as you return.
