Daily Fun Tip #3

One of the most popular things to do once the weather gets nice is to go to the zoo. Kids love to see all of the animals they’ve been learning about at school or in the books you read to them.

Since being quarantined, practicing social distancing, or whatever you want to call it, we have all been inside–with the majority of us grown-ups watching a crazy docu-series about for-profit zoos housing large cats and other predatory species.

While zoos are currently closed to the public, some are offering virtual tours and live-streaming videos. San Diego Zoo has a website for kids that features live footage, animal facts, activities and games.

Today, I invite you to check out their website and watch their live videos here: https://kids.sandiegozoo.org/.  Using the information and videos on the site, encourage your child to draw their favorite animal.

You can also have virtual animals in your living room. Learn more here:  https://9to5google.com/2020/04/11/google-3d-animals-list/
