Virtual Early Explorers

Virtual Early Explorers is a growing activity resource for parents and caregivers to lead their own exploration, sensory, and craft activities at home. We believe young children learn best through hands-on exploration, and these activities are not intended as computer time (except for occasional links to optional educational videos). While we cannot provide in-person programs at the museum at this time, we hope you will find these activities helpful to continue exploring with your children.

Early Explorers activities are designed for children 5 and under (with adult), but are adaptable to other ages.
