Activities For You and Your Family While You Social Distance

A lot of families will be cooped up at home for the next few weeks. Schools in Indiana are closed until May 1st, Jefferson County Public schools in Kentucky will be closed from Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 3. The last day of school will be June 11, unless state legislators decide to forgive lost instructional days.

With state legislators urging people to stay home, even with online learning there is a lot of time to pass. Here are some websites with virtual tours and activities that kids and adults can do to stay occupied and have fun while we ride out the Corona Virus.
