Activities for Kids During School Closures

Being out of school can be fun when it's a few days. But, with schools around the country closed for weeks (or months), kids can get a bit restless. We’ve put together a list of fun, educational activities to keep their minds sharp!


Virtual Farm Tours

These tours were run last year for kids in school. So, what better way to stay connected to the classroom than watching some fun, educational and teacher-approved content!

We have tours for all ages. Learn more.
