What to do on a Rainy Afternoon

unnamed

Visit the Decatur Library (virtually of course!)

 

Take a Trip to the Atlanta Zoo (be sure to bring a snack!)

  • Zoo Atlanta is proud to be the U.S. partner of the international launch of Wildeverse, a NEW free mobile game that transforms your home into the jungle with Augmented Reality. You can download to your phone or tablet.
  • The PandaCam is now BirdCam before noon. Enjoy watching the birds and then the pandas.
  • Saturday, May 9 is World Migratory Birds Day. Learn about them and enjoy some virtual activities.

Museums

  • Visit the Fernbank Museum at Home for science adventures, storytimes, nature experiences and a whole lot more! Many are interactive.
  • Stay connected with the High Museum of art with their High Museum at Home art activities, stories, virtual museum tours, coloring pages, and more.
  • Explore contemporary art at the Atlanta Contemporary with virtual tours and programmings.

Stay Active!

  • Enjoy a free yoga class with Yoga with Adriene
  • Gather the family and do a fun family workout. There are a lot of videos on YouTube. You may want to start with this one.
  • And lastly, take a walk in the rain! Get your rain boots on and jump in some puddles. Observe any animals you see and how they respond to the rain. Are the birds flying? Do you see any earthworms?

For more ideas, check out the Decatur Virtual Recreation Center.

 

 

 

 

Visit the High and Get Creative

unnamedThe High Museum of Art in Atlanta is offering many ways to “visit the High” virtually and “get creative at home.”

This week you can learn to draw a birds-eye view of your neighborhood  while learning about artist Nellie Mae Rowe, who depicted her neighborhood in Atlanta several times in her life.

Every Friday at noon, the High offers virtual museum tours. Register for free here.

Print out one of these coloring pages featuring works of art at the High and have recreating the work. Get creative and make yours different than the original.

Do a Virtual 5K on May 2 with Prevention Magazine

download

Prevention Magazine is doing a virtual 5K on May 2. You’re probably familiar with local runs and walks held at a specific location. You’ve got to live close enough to get there by the start time—and parking can be a beast. With a virtual walk, you pick where you do it, who you do it with, and what time you start.

Registration is free, however if you want to get a t-shirt the fee is $35.
