One way that we can stay connected, motivated and positive is online. We challenged our ingenious artists to come up with fun things to do using bits and pieces from the backyard, kitchen drawers and recycling bin. While these creative activities are for all ages, some participants may need assistance with things like scissors or ripping tape. We’d love to see your Polyglot at home adventures and creations – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post on social media and tag us.
