Now that we’re all sequestered in our living rooms with our children, having things to look forward to is key to our mental survival. Thankfully, generous artists and musicians are providing live entertainment and activities from music and dance to art-making available to our kids through the miracle of the Internet. Whether it’s Facebook or Instagram live, Youtube or Zoom, there are lots of ways to be engaged and moving. Here are some wonderful events on the books (or rather the computer.)
