Once it sank in that we would be spending a lot of top quality time with our children over the course of the next several weeks, I decided to consolidate my favorite at home activities, experiments, virtual tours, and academic resources being shared on the World Wide Web. There is enough information here to complete one activity a day for an entire year (hoping we don't have to go this route). So, pick out your favorites and enjoy your time together with your little ones.
