INTRODUCING A WEBPAGE WITH ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES FOR STAYING AT HOME
Residents invited to visit site regularly for updates
To help kids and adults stay busy and active while sheltering at home, Naperville Park District staff is pleased to introduce a new webpage, NaperParks2You that features activities and lots of online resources that will be updated frequently.
NaperParks2You will include content for different ages and interests, ideas from community partners, and resources to stay active, engage your imagination, learn new skills and connect with others online. For example, the page lists arts activities for youth, including a video by Miss Jamie of Rock ‘n’ Kids showing kids how to make fun hand shakers at home. Other content includes videos of stories read aloud for young children, science experiments and much more.
“We'll be sharing all kinds of ways to keep you and your family smiling, active and making special memories from home or on-the-go,” said Andrea Coates, superintendent of recreation. “We hope you enjoy being a part of our new Naperville Park District community online!”
