• Celebrate fatherhood on Fathers Eve!

    Network event

    Online event

    Fathers Eve has become one of our favorite events of the year, and this year is no exception with both live events and virtual events to celebrate fatherhood EVERYWHERE on the night before Fathers Day.

    Several of our City Dads Group are hosting live events (check your Meetup calendar), but if you can't make it to one of those, join the virtual toast to fatherhood on Facebook live (link below).

    More details about Fathers Eve on our blog: https://citydadsgroup.com/blog/fathers-eve-2021-to-return-to-in-person-events-but-keep-live-stream/

  • Art Museums - Virtual Field Trips

    your home

    Virtual field trips are a great way to expose kids to new places all from the comfort of home. In this age of technology, so many museums, zoos, and aquariums have set up virtual tours and webcams of their facilities. Now more than ever it is easier to visit destinations around the world from the comfort of your couch.

    In light of recent events, families are finding themselves in the position of not only being at home with their children for an extended period of time but educating them as well. Unlike a school vacation, places like zoos, aquariums, and museums are closed in an effort to keep people from congregating. Travel is also on hold. Virtual field trips are a fun and educational way to visit places virtually and keep “travel” going.

    We have rounded up some virtual field trips that you can take with your kids. There are also lesson ideas, activities and book suggestions to extend the learning for each type of destination

    ART MUSEUMS

    Visit some of the best art galleries in the world virtually. From Paris to New York to Amsterdam, kids can see priceless works of art from the world’s most famous artists.

  • Home Safari Tour (Daily at 3pm ET)

    your home

    Fun activity you can do with your kids from the comfort of home!

    While the zoo is closed and kids are home from school, tune in at 3pm *each weekday* to meet one of the zoo animals. The zoo even suggests a related activity you can do from home.

    These are posted on their Facebook page live, but the recordings are saved on their website. So you don't need Facebook to enjoy this with your kids.

    Learn more at http://cincinnatizoo.org/home-safari-resources.

    Know of other fun distance learning activities? Mention them in the comments and they'll get added to the calendar.

    Just like zoos, aquariums have used webcams to let you visit their exhibits virtually. In addition, some aquariums have set up virtual tours led by their staff to give visitors a more in-depth look at their facility.
