Alas, the Cincinnati zoo is currently closed to visitors. But that doesn’t mean you can’t see the animals!
Every afternoon at 3 pm Eastern time, the zoo posts a new video visit with an animal in its collection. The initial posts are on Facebook Live, but they’re all being uploaded to YouTube, to be watched many times in the future.
And that’s not all! The zoo also provides an activity related to each animal. Make a giraffe puppet! Learn how to draw like an elephant! Make a hand-print rhino! The activities are flexible, taking into account the fact that not every household has a full stock of arts and crafts supplies.
