We have another BIG LIST for you and this time it's for the kids. You'll find 17 resources and activities they can do from home during the pandemic. That includes coloring pages, virtual tours of museums, paper cutting and craft activities to keep them creating and having fun. Of course, there's no reason why adults can't do the things on this list too. Just saying...in case you didn't know that already. I mean, come on! Who doesn't want a coloring page with mythical creatures?!
A special thanks to our lovely employee, Kristie Winther of Marigold Mural Studios for gathering all these links and resources. We are so grateful to have you on our team, Kristie!
