At-Home Fun for Kids
Get indoor activity ideas
The ABC's of COVID-19 is part of Sesame Workshop's new Caring for Each Other initiative, which launched in March as a response to the unprecedented uncertainty families are facing right now in the wake of coronavirus. The initiative provides free content designed to help parents provide a "for now normal" and to comfort their children, manage anxiety and foster educational playtime at home. The free resources and ideas encourage your family to find ways to breathe, laugh, and play together during these scary times. Some Caring for Each Other resources you can find include:
- Sesame Street themed coloring and activity pages
- Step by Step Sesame Street hand washing guides
- Singalongs with Elmo
- Cookie Monster Snack Chats
- Encouraging messages for parents
- Sneezing and coughing safely with Grover
- Freeze dance with Abby Cadabby
The resources are regularly updated to meet the needs of families as the ever changing situation continues to evolve.
