For those with younger members of the family around, an undeniable struggle throughout this lockdown has been entertaining children who normally enjoy the stimulation of a packed school day. Thankfully, many organizations have come to the rescue with both educational and fun resources to break up the monotony.

With expert advice on education and child psychology, guidance is given on how best to create an emotionally healthy state for children so they can better deal with the situation.

 

MUS.E have rallied together a wide range of activities dedicated to children. From fairytales to fun and games, there is something for all age groups.

 

The Galileo Museum has launched an educational series for secondary schools, providing free video lessons on a range of topics. From Galileo Galilei’s unexpected influence on pop music to Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels relationship with the 18th-century scientific world, there is sure to be an engaging topic for your teen.

 

The Galleria dell’Accademia keeps kids stimulated with culture thanks to a very special tour guide: Davidino. Young visitors are accompanied through online learning by a young David, who reveals the stories behind the iconography of the saints and polyptychs in the collection.

 

 

 

 

Palazzo Strozzi engages creative young minds with thrilling artistic activities. The L’arte a casa series for children, teenagers and families provides stimulating tasks with materials that are easy to find at home.
