5 Free Online Resources for Families During the Easter Week Break
5 Free Online Resources for Families During the Easter Week Break

Easter week has started and families will stay at home while the students enjoy a week off from their distance learning process. Since they can’t go anywhere according to national authorities, it will be necessary to find some new things to do.

If you would like your kids to spend this week doing other activities than playing video games or using social media, we want to recommend a list of 5 websites that offer interesting free options for them.

Let’s get started!

30 Amazing Virtual Tours of Museums, Zoos and Theme Parks

Here you can take a tour of The Louvre Museum, then visit the Houston Zoo to see plenty of different animals through their live cam, and finish your day going for a ride on a Disney roller coaster. This list offers many options to virtual tours, art gallery exhibitions and links to some roller coaster rides. Are you ready to have fun?

20 Virtual Field Trips to Take With Your Kids

We know it’s vacation time, but there is always something new that we can learn from every experience. So, why not take your younger kids on a virtual field trip? In this page, you will find links to museums, zoos, aquariums, cities, and landmarks around the world. Every category has a worksheet or activities to enhance your kids’ online field trip adventures. This other option has similar categories but it also includes field trips to farms and safaris. Check them out!

YouTube Learning at Home

This vacation week could be the best time to explore the resources that YouTube offers to students. The company has educational content on different subjects like math, history, science, languages and more. The videos include activities to help students have fun as they learn. In the link, you can find options for preschoolers, elementary students, and teenagers. Get ready to explore!

Audible Stories: Free Audiobooks for Kids

As long as schools are closed, students will have the chance to enter the Amazon audio stories website. This collection is offered for students of all ages. You can find titles in six different languages, and they are free to stream on a variety of devices like laptops, phones, and tablets. Let’s enjoy a good book story!

We can’t finish the list without mentioning a resource that will help kids stay focused on the important event we are celebrating this week.

Superbook

This website is full of games, videos, and activities for kids. This is a fun way to learn about the Bible, God and the true meaning of Easter. Your kids can go to the website or download the App. These days everything seems to be about the pandemic situation, so let’s have some time as a family this Easter week to focus on the Lord and his redemption plan for humanity! This website can help you to achieve that!

We encourage you to stay home and safe during Easter, and we hope that these resources will help you to not just entertain your kids, but also to strengthen the family unit as you explore, learn and enjoy these free online options!

Happy Easter!
