Are you looking for something engaging and interactive for your child to do during their Columbus Day School Holiday? This exciting new program brings the Zoo right into your living room! Join us for a virtual exploration where we will sing silly songs, play games, make crafts, meet live animals, and so much more. Groups are limited to just 15 participants each! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity for your child(ren) to be actively engaged in fun and learning and make some new friends on their day off!
Don’t forget! Since our workshops are virtual, that means kids can join us from anywhere in the country! Do you have special friends or cousins who live out-of-state? Now you can take a virtual safari together!
Monday, October 12
9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Ogres, vampires, ghost and goblins – all can be found in the animal kingdom! Learn all about real-life creepers and the animals that inspired some of our favorite movie monsters.
1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
Beetles, spiders, butterflies, and more. Learn all about insects and other arthropods as we explore living and preserved specimens up close during this crawly workshop.
Morning or Afternoon workshop
Both workshops (9-11 a.m. & 1-3 p.m.)
We require a minimum of 5 participants in order to run a workshop. If group registration is less than 5, families will be contacted and given the opportunity to either switch to a different workshop or receive a full refund
Do I need to be in the room with my child during the online program?
No. Parents/Guardians will need to be there at the beginning of each session to virtually check-in participants and make sure they are set for the day. Once the safari begins parents don’t need to hang around, but should remain in the vicinity for general supervision.
Will you send us craft materials, or do we have to go out and buy them?
Crafts for each workshop are done using items you most likely have around your house: glue/glue stick, crayons/markers, scissors, paper, cereal box cardboard, TP tubes, etc. When you register you will receive a list of craft supplies with your confirmation.
Any additional questions or information should be directed to the Education Department at (716) 995-6124.
