Five Things for Today: May 8, 2020

Harry Potter reads Harry Potter

1. It’s Harry Potter read by… Harry Potter! Daniel Radcliffe and other celebrities will be reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on video, and it kicks off with The Boy Who Lived.

2. Get some inspiration for Mother’s Day cards from the place that hosts the best card making workshops, the National Postal Museum! They’ve posted a few online videos with creative ideas, with something for all ages (maybe with a little help from adults). View them here, here, and here.

3. How about some Friday evening family fun? Join the Spy Museum for a Covert Couch Challenge, an action-packed FamilY Game Night recommended for recruits age 7-12 (and parents).  A Museum Educator will lead participants in a race against the clock to complete mini missions. Your family’s teamwork abilities and tradecraft skills will be put to the test as you create coded messages, slip into disguise, and design, recommended for ages 6-12. (PS: Kids can prep for it with a free Spy Skills program at 12pm today.)

4. My friend Darcy recently posted an awesome list of 10 Happy Things for May.

5. I cannot get this amazing song out of my head. (The remixes rock, too.)
