During these unsure times, we know that having your little ones at home can be a challenge. Here at Arcadia, we wanted to offer up some resources that we found to help keep your kids engaged. Check out our resource sheet with links to virtual field trips, math and STEM focuses activities, and of course — ways to get your kids in nature! The best part is: lots of the activities require only a few things that you probably already have hanging around your home. www.arcadiafood.org
