Staycation Inspiration

Each day, we'll share a new location for you to explore on your virtual spring break.

Day 1: Washington, D.C.

Day 2: Japan

Today’s staycation destination is Japan!

What other aspects of Japanese culture can you discover from home?

Day 3: Peru

Stuck at home? No prob-llama! Today’s virtual destination is Peru!


  • Explore Machu Picchu! What other sites are along the Inca trail?
  • Draw a llama! Or an alpaca! What is the difference? What other Peruvian animals can you discover?
  • Make your own version of the Peruvian game Sapo. Sapo is a coin-tossing game in which the players try to toss coins into holes on top of a box.
    • Ask and adult to help you cut some 2-inch holes into the top of a cardboard box.
    • Draw a frog around one of the holes. The hole should be the mouth of the frog!
    • Each player tosses 10 coins towards the holes. If a coin gets into the frog’s mouth, that player is the winner! If no coin goes into the frog’s mouth, then the player with the most coins in holes wins.


 

Day 4: Australia

Let's take a #CKVirtual Vacay down under!


  • Explore the Sydney Opera House in a 360° video music performance.
  • Take an interactive tour of the Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough.
  • Dive into the Australian National Surfing Museum. Are there any surfers out in Kitsap? Show us your pictures!
  • BONUS: When does the sun rise on the eastern coast of Australia, Pacific Standard Time? When it’s light out down under, there are plenty of live zoo cams to explore! Just search for Australian zoo websites online.


Day 5: SPACE
