1. It’s official: DC begins Phase 1 of reopening tomorrow, May 29. The Washington Post has details on what this entails along with more info on Maryland and Northern Virginia’s reopenings.
2. Little ones can go on a virtual outdoor adventure with a FONZ Educational Specialist in a series of videos from the National Zoo. The latest one explores the color yellow in nature. (PS: These also provide inspo for IRL nature walks with kiddos!)
3. For parents interested in Hebrew School for their kids, here is a great way to keep them learning and maybe even trying a new language as they finish up school: Hebrew School To You continues to offer engaging, customized private and group sessions for kids and adults in Judaics and Hebrew Language. With COVID-19, classes have gone virtual and you can start at any time, even throughout the summer. (They can also help with Bar/Bat Mitzvah prep!)
4. Shop a trove of unique art, goods, and wares and support a local business! Steadfast Supply has locations at The Yards in DC and Ballston Quarter in NoVa, but the store has gone online during this time. You can find all kinds of items from independent brands and designers that would make perfect gifts for the people you miss, fun things for the family, or even a nice treat for yourself.
5. Goodnight Zoom.
