Best Virtual Classes and Events for Kids

Posted: March 22, 2020

School's out - in fact, pretty much everything is out - except for parenting. While the world around us may grind to a halt, the kids still need to be fed, bathed, cared for... and entertained!

We're loading up our calendar each day with more and more great virtual classes and events for kids. We've moved back all regularly scheduled events to make way for new categories in our calendar to reflect the current options for your kids.

See just a sampling of some of the many virtual options that have become available as we approach our first week in Chicago lockdown. Check back soon as we feature more options n the coming days! And make sure you check out our other resources:
