Make a Video Together
Grab the kids and check out their broadcasting skills by making a video offering your kids best tips for safeguarding themselves from germs. Maybe they could show us what 20 seconds of proper handwashing looks like – and what song they sing so they know it’s been 20 seconds! Or maybe they can demonstrate the rues of proper social distancing. Have some fun with it, and let your kids become the safety experts for a change. Check out the video Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy made to demonstrate the importance of washing your hands!
For step-by-step instructions to recreate this experiment yourself, check out this YouTube video.

Let’s Go Fly a Kite!
With the beautiful weather, now is the perfect time to get outside and fly a Kite – but why not have even more fun and MAKE your own kite! As you can see in this photo, kite making is underway at our Y frontline childcare program. You can make your own paper bag kite from simple materials you probably already have around the house.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Large brown paper grocery bag
Paper ring reinforcers (or substitute masking tape)
School glue or paste
Paint, crayons, markers, pencils, and other lightweight décor items
Paper streamers or crepe paper that you can cut into strips
Now visit our friends at Kinderart.com to find out how to make your kite!
