Family Fun at Home (A-Z Master List) #AtoZChallenge

Family Fun at Home (A-Z Master List) #AtoZChallenge

For the 2020 Blogging from A-Z Challenge, my theme was “Family Fun at Home”. I posted 26 pages of ideas and tips for keeping your family entertained at home, which included arts and crafts, games, learning ideas and imaginative activities for all ages. I thought it would be particularly useful while we’re all self-isolating or socially distancing, though it can be used for any time of year. You can find the entire list of posts below. I hope you enjoy them!

Letter “V” is for Virtual Visits. Although tourist attractions are currently closed to the public, many museums and galleries are offering free online experiences so that you can visit them virtually from the comfort of your sofa! These events are a fantastic way for all the family to learn new things and stave off lockdown boredom. Below is a list of all the virtual tourist attractions I’ve come across online so far.
