Things To Do At Home

  • The EMU Children's Institute created the following document containing many great links to on-line resources.



    We understand that the closings of schools and community events
    has turned many of our lives upside down temporarily. While you
    are home with your child(ren), we wanted to share some resources
    to help fill your days with fun and learning.
    Attached are some general resources, as well as developmentally
    appropriate activities that are divided by age-groups so you can
    choose activities that are best for your child.
