5 Education Activities for at Home Learning
Children’s brains don’t stop developing because of a pandemic. With a rise in cases in the last few weeks, the St. George Children’s Museum understands that not everyone will want or can come in to see our exhibits to learn and play. Our top priority is children’s education and we want to offer resources to parents and caregivers. Here are a few fun resources we have found that can be beneficial for some fun learning and playing.
1. Pipe Cleaner Constellation
This hands-on activity will teach your kids about the constellations patterns
and stars that are within our solar system. Fun for all ages!
Experiment with colors with this 3 ingredient home science experiment. Watch as
you and your child make some colorful bubbles! All you need is some baking soda, vinegar and food coloring!
3. Growing Crystals

Enhance your child’s reading skills by creating a treasure hunt map for them to go

5. Tape Sorting Shapes
Tape down some painters tape in different shapes and then scatter different paper
shapes around the house and have your child match the right shapes.
When you do decide to come visit us at the St. George Children’s Museum we have additional
educational resources for grades K-5th, to optimize your visit for your child. You can find these
under our Resource tab on our website.
