Every week this is what I do. I tell you what you can go out and do, what events are happening in Columbus. Pretty much the whole basis of blog is currently off limits! Not to fear. I’m still here for you. Each week I am going to be featuring some resources you can use to entertain the kids at home!

This is NOT my area of expertise, so it’s great that we have so many local people and organizations who can inspire us with their creative ideas and educational resources! This list is specifically focused on Columbus based resources!
