Avoid Boredom 24/7! Fun Ways to “Get Out” During COVID

February 5, 2021
by: Chad Welch, Community Impact Coordinator – Education

To help you manage a time of unprecedented family togetherness inside, here are a few 24/7 online learning experiences that are available any time. There are literally hundreds of experiences to suit all ages and interests: Zoo webcams, museum tours, exhibits, online activities for kids, streaming performances, reading/storytime, and stuff that’s just for fun, from North America and all over the world. I’ve included just a few here that I hope help get your family a different view as we continue on with our Wisconsin winter.

 

Explore elephants in Africa in Tembe elephant park.

 

Explore a tropical reef camera.

Watch the pandas at the Atlanta Zoo.

I wanted to add another web page found by one of our local readers. Her name is Katie and her Girl Scout troop is currently working on their Arts & Culture Fun Patch. What a great site Katie! Thanks for sharing! I hope you have a chance to show your troop leader. Thanks for the tip.
