A student learning basic woodworking skills

We know many of you have school-aged children at home who might be in need of activities to keep them engaged! Try some of these fun, hands-on activities inspired by our books and museum. For more learning opportunities, check our education page, our app, or our podcast!

Get out and explore your own backyard or a local park with this simple scavenger hunt!

Use some of the things you found on your walk to make unique paintings.

Got spare craft yarn lying around? Use it to make simple yarn dolls.

If you have the supplies, try making a cornshuck doll. Get creative and dye the husks with food coloring or kool-aid before making the dolls!
