The Children's Museum has launched daily programming titled #CMAatHome to help families stay entertained during social distancing. Every weekday, the museum releases a series of content, including an interactive activity, vocabulary list, song list or book recommendation. A recent post included an experiment and vocabulary list about chemical reactions. The museum plans to post videos that encourage storytime and singalongs soon. childrensmuseumatlanta.org

Museum of Design Atlanta
The Museum of Design Atlanta spent the first few weeks of social distancing adjusting to offering online programming. Now most programs, which were available for free during the prototyping period, will cost $15-$25. Museum supporters are asked to donate to a scholarship fund to support kids who cannot pay the registration fee and wish to attend an online class. Programs are for students ages 8-18 and focus on topics such as 3D Design, architectural design and coding. museumofdesign.org
The local zoo doesn't have much virtual programming, but it is offering a few PDFs that encourages kids to interact with nature in their own neighborhood (while adhering to social distancing guidelines). Backyard Bingo allows kids to identify clouds, worms, birds and more, while an Explore the Outdoors PDF encourages them to identify the various colors, textures and sounds of nature. The website also has storytime content if you're looking for a family-friendly activity to do indoors. zooatlanta.org
