We've added NEW categories for Virtual Classes, Virtual Events, and Take Home / Pick Up Activities.

Options from Chicago-based providers are listed first, so that you can support our local kid-friendly businesses during these tough times - let's give them lots of love!

Note that event information changes often these days, so always confirm your event before "attending."
