Free Online Learning Activities to Keep Your Kids Busy
Whether or not you have a degree in education, if you have kids, you’re now a teacher. Fortunately there are many online resources to keep them entertained. Some have always been free; others are now gratis thanks to companies dropping paywalls while schools are closed. You can take your kids on a virtual museum visit, secretly teach them chemistry with cooking, and get some phys ed into their days with digital dance-offs. Best of all, a lot of these are self-directed, so you can get work done or take some time for yourself while your kids are having fun and getting educated.


Fit in some phys-ed time with GoNoodle. The site offers short videos with different styles of music with easy dances kids can follow. Videos are organized by channel and can hype kids up (House Party) or calm them down (Flow). Aside from the routines, you’ll find plenty of projects to keep kids entertained and occupied. Everything on GoNoodle is the work of child-development specialists, educators, and researchers. Find videos on Roku, Apple TV, and mobile devices (Amazon, iOS, Android).


Are you serving as a full-time chef for your household? Get your kids to help out without them even realizing it. America’s Test Kitchen has put together Kitchen Classroom, complete with fun videos about food, activities, and yes, easy-to-follow recipes. Kids can get into making their own bread just as adults are doing, start their day with homemade granola, and cook up their favorite chicken tenders.
