Fun Hands-on Learning to do at Home

As always, UW-Madison Division of Extension and 4-H want to support youth and families with fun, hands-on learning that helps young people build life skills like critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making.

Extension educators from around the state created a handy list of easy-to-access activities and curriculum ( The page is organized by grade level and is chock full of Extension and 4-H resources as well as high quality, fun, learning activities from a range of other sources.

As you would expect, we focused as much as possible on experiential learning and fun. Then, to save you time, energy, and unnecessary worry, we:

  • Filtered out many activities with hard-to-find supplies and those that needed a lot of adult supervision to be safe.
  • Included activities that encouraged some kind of safe social connection and/or involved getting youth out of the chair and moving.
  • Included high quality, inclusive, and accessible resources for all ages, including parents, caregivers, and families.
