Variety of interactive, virtual activities bringing workshops and programs to life at home.

By Children’s Museum of Atlanta October 12, 2020

Children’s Museum of Atlanta recognizes that virtual programming is a lifeline for educators and parents during these complicated times. Regarded as a proactive pioneer in digital programming and activities post-COVID, the Museum invites the community to take part in its latest, all-new digital series with updated, hands-on activities that bolster children’s educational and creative success… even while still at home this fall.

The new  Virtual Building Blocks program is a weekly series of 30-minute classes geared for preschoolers (ages 3-5) to enjoy with the assistance of a grown-up. A variety of topics – from literacy, arts, and STEM to emotional wellbeing, geography, and healthy eating – will be covered, and each class includes storytime, vocabulary words, and a hands-on activity. 

Led by trained Museum staff, Virtual Building Blocks will take place each Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. from Oct. 19 through Nov. 23.
Parents can register for the series or for individual classes; the cost for non-members is $12 per class or $60 for the full series or $10 per class or $50 for the full series for members.

Dates, Hours & Themes:
OCT 19: Art is Shapes (art focus)
OCT 26: I Am Peace (social-emotional focus, art/maker activity)
NOV 2: Growing Vegetable Soup (healthy eating focus)
NOV 9: Dance Around the World (social-emotional, geography)
NOV 16: Three Little Pigs (STEM, engineering focus)
NOV 23: Invisible String (social-emotional focus)

Current online programs include Museum On-the-GoCMA Town Square, Homeschool Days, and the all-new  Virtual Building Blocks series. Children’s Museum of Atlanta will continue to serve as a beacon of learning through the power of play, with activities continually launched through virtual programs to ensure engagement for all children regardless of their location. The Museum has also partnered with organizations like the YMCA and Atlanta Hawks to supplement their camps and digital programming.

Children’s Museum of Atlanta is now open for limited capacity in a two-hour session format. The Museum is following enhanced health and safety measures, including requiring face coverings for all guests over 5-years-old and all staff members; deep cleaning between each session and cleaning of high touchpoints during sessions; and conducting Creativity Café projects in open-air spaces. A full list of health enhancements can be found at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta.  More information on reservations and tickets, revised operating hours and the Museum’s online programming guide can be found here
