Keep the Learning Alive at Home with Creative Projects

Flarp at the Bay Area Discovery Museum

Just because we're all stuck at home doesn't mean the learning doesn't stop. Even though they're temporarily closed, some of our favorite local resources for fun, art, and science are keeping the learning alive by offering projects that kids can do without leaving home.

Bay Area Discovery Museum

The staff at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito have created a make-at-home recipe for flarp. Make this ooey gooey substance out of products that you may already have lying around at home or that are easily obtainable at your local grocery store. Flarp is not only a fun science experiment, but a sensory material that offers hours of play for the kiddos.


San Francisco's Exploratorium has an online Learning Toolbox that offers numerous science and tinkering projects that you can do around the house. Many of the projects relate to the timely topics of COVID-19 and the science of viruses. These projects are perfect for learners of all ages.

Studio 4 Art

Studio 4 Art, which offers creative classes in Novato and Mill Valley, has put together a series of art kits for kids with projects like screen printing, sewing, acrylic painting, and air-dry clay sculpture. Kits are only available in limited quantities, so call Studio 4 Art at (415) 596-5546 to reserve yours.
