10 things to do on Monday

In case you'd like a tour through Virtual Kids Week, here's a short list of things to get you going!
Welcome to the first day of Virtual Kids Week. Our activities, guides, and entertainment are all on-demand to give you the flexibility to plan each day. Everyone could use a little help on a Monday, so we thought we’d start off with a list of 10 activities to jump-start your family’s week.
  1. Stand up for what’s right: “I am Rosa Parks”

    In this book reading, you’ll learn all about the civil rights leader who knew in her heart that people should be celebrated—not judged—for what makes them different.
  2. So, wait—some plants eat meat?

    How can a plant that’s sitting in the ground catch a flying bug? As you’ll see in this video from The Seattle Spheres, plants that are carnivorous have surprising and clever tricks to capture insects.
  3. Code the song of the summer!

    Amazon Future Engineer invites your children to create the next Song of the Summer in this contest! With EarSketch, they can remix tracks from award-winning artists Ciara and Common by coding.
  4. Watercolor painting offers a rainbow of possibilities

    During the pandemic, have you noticed pictures of rainbows popping up in windows around your neighborhood? In our tutorial, an instructor at the Pratt Fine Arts Center teaches kids how to paint one of their own.
  5. Hungry yet? Let us show you how to upgrade your instant ramen

    In this video, chef Eric Tanaka and his kids demonstrate how to turn your pre-packaged noodles into a bowl of restaurant-quality ramen.
  6. Meet one of the voices behind Niko and the Sword of Light

    In the animated series, Niko faces an evil sorcerer. In this video, meet actor Tom Kenny, who voices Nikio’s sidekick Mandok and other characters.
  7. "World's Toughest Race" obstacle course

    On your mark, get set, go! Gather a laundry basket, pillows, a few other household items, and plenty of energy to create and compete in your very own race based on the show.
  8. Why you shouldn’t worry about mistakes when you draw

    Pint-sized fans of “We Don’t Eat Our Classmates” and the “Mother Bruce” series will gobble up this step-by-step drawing tutorial from the author himself.
  9. Need a pick-me-up? Let’s make cranberry-almond no-bake energy bites

    Here’s how the editor-in-chief of America’s Test Kitchen Kids describes this dish: “This is actually the simplest recipe you could possibly make, and you don’t even need to turn on the oven.”
  10. Create your own Carnival mask

    Who says costume masks are only for Halloween? In this video, you'll learn how to make your very own mask with an artist from the Gage Academy of Art.
Doesn’t that sound like a great day of family fun? Go as fast or as slow as you want, because everything at Virtual Kids Week is on-demand. Tomorrow we’ll be sketching, cooking hand pies, and singing along with a very special and very furry blue guest.
