This new series takes you behind-the-scenes into the "creative diets" of our staff. Each week, we'll share a list of five things that grabbed our attention or inspired us creatively that week.
ONE: This Downloadable Activity Booklet for Children
We've slowly been working our way through the Columbus Museum's extensive online/virtual programming. The team there has created a plethora of incredible resources for their audience to enjoy online.
