Couldn’t make it to one of our Art Staycation activities? Art kits were all taken by the time you registered? No worries! You can still try our take home activities as a family using common household items! We’ll add a new activity each time a new session begins. If you and your family make something you’re proud of, share it on social media and tag us in the post @byumoa!
