Ultimate Guide: Things to do at home with your kids

As the Covid19 virus hits the US, many of us are hunkering down at home with the kids. Schools are shutting down and while some have been able to transition into solid distance learning programs; most schools simply weren’t set up for video conferencing with kids/teachers or online coursework. As schools and teachers scramble to figure out how to create meaningful learning for their students at home; parents are scrambling to figure out how to administer schoolwork or other activities to their kids (many while trying to figure out work, money, access to groceries, and health concerns). Let’s just say you get a major A+ for keeping your kids engaged, excited, minimizing screen time, and everyone staying sane at the same time!

That’s where we come in! Here are TONS of things to do at home with your kids no matter what age. Lucky for us we live in a time where you can learn just about anything if you have the desire and an internet connection or some good books. 🙂

Minnesota Twins

Minnesota Twins Ballpark Target Field

Major League Baseball’s Twins play in the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis, until the 2010 season when the team will open the baseball-specific Target Statdium. The Twins compete in the Central Division of the American League, and their chief rivals are divisional foes like the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers. Grandchildren love a winner and the Twins have been very good in recent years, winning division titles in 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2006.

Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame

If you and your grandchildren are science fiction fans, this small space is the place to go. It not only traces the history of the genre back hundreds of years, it categorizes and features thousands of film props showing the necessary elements of a good sci-fi film covering transportation, communication and attire. The bridge from the original Star Trek television show is just one of the treasures on hand. Holographic displays of the cities from The Jetsons and Blade Runner will make you both “ooh” and “aah.”
