Here is another round-up of online resources and activities for your littles. With so many now staying safe at home, there is an abundance of things out there.
Hours of Stories and Activities
Adventures In Odyssey presents original audio stories brought to life by actors who make you feel like part of the experience. They are offering a free 28-day trial. Your kids will enjoy stories that stir their imaginations and teach valuable lessons. Some are based on historic events, different cultures, Bible stories, or important lessons in friendship and life. They come with activities and crafts as well. Adventures in Odyssey has been on the radio for years so if you start at the beginning, your kids can use their imaginations for hours. (Good for kids of all ages but especially those ages 8-12.)
Free Virtual Ballet Classes
Every Wednesday at noon, the Cleveland Inner City Ballet is going live on Facebook with a virtual ballet lesson. So grab your tutus and tights and get started with the video archives from the last 2 weeks.
