Covid-19 has prompted closures and shutdowns to non-essential businesses, schools, and more.

Staying at home, doesn’t mean you have to feel boxed in. Last week, the Museum of Discovery and Science and Perez Art Museum Miami kicked off their virtual entertainment on social media.

This week, more local South Florida businesses are joining in on the virtual fun for you and your entire family.

Jungle island is telling kids and parents to stay in your shell.

Miami’s premier eco-adventure park introduced a new virtual online learning opportunity.
From Monday to Friday at 11am go to Jungle Island’s Facebook or Instagram live to join the park’s education manager Emma Guss in virtual learning. Each week they’ll have different themes such as Everglades exploration, spread your wings, primate practices, and more.

The Miami Children’s Museum is launching Museum at Home.

They're launching new inventive, imaginative, and fun activities on their YouTube channel.

You and family members can enjoy story time, where daily the museum’s theater troupe takes you on a theatrical, lyrical, and whimsical journey through classic children’s books.

The museum will also be launching art projects very soon.
