Not sure what to do with the kids during the holiday break?  Here are some of our top picks part 2:

Norton Simon Museum Arts & Crafts
There is a whole vacation's worth of cool arts & crafts projects all in one place!  Tag us if you try one.  I guarantee we will be doing these this week.  Find them here.

Myths and Legends
This podcast offers weekly stories from around the world and throughout the ages.  It's a fun listen with 288 weekly podcasts available for free on their website.  Not all stories are appropriate for younger children.  There is a disclaimer at the start.  Start listening here.  

Petersen Automotive Museum
I love old cars.  This museum has something for everyone.  Watch a 2 hour private video tour of the museum with the COO describing the entire collection!  Or you can start at my favorite section here - the donated collection of James Hetfield of Metallica fame.   Or just enjoy the many activities, from word searches to DIY balloon cars, found here.

British Museum's World History Tour
I may have posted this before.  It never grows old.  If you haven't played with this, think virtual Timeline (the card game) only even cooler...Enjoy one of my favorite procrastination/learning/diversions here.  

Until December 31st, we are offering our best deals of the year.  Check them out here:
