We are Sharing FUN Ideas with You Every Weekday at 10 a.m.
Events are being canceled, activities are postponed, and schools are closing. We know it will be a challenge for kids to be away from school, for working parents trying to juggle child care, and for parents home with little ones all day.
Each weekday morning at 10 a.m. on our Family Fun in Omaha Facebook page, we will be sharing videos, links to educational FB lives, helpful resources, and more – all full of activities and ideas for things to do with your kids during the unique time.
People helping people, this is what is going to help us all through this. So many individuals and businesses stepping up to help one another, and we want to help make it easier for you by sharing it all in one place.
Our mission at Family Fun in Omaha is to build our community by sharing fun things to do with families, and we will continue to be that helpful resource for you.
