Amuseum@Home provides fun, local learning activities for free. It was created by the Les Fruits de Mer association to support learning and lift spirits during the 2020 pandemic lockdown. Due to the delay in opening schools this fall, the program has been relaunched with lots of great new activities.
“Our mission is to promote learning about local nature and heritage,” explained Les Fruits de Mer President Jenn Yerkes. “The Amuseum@Home program shares coloring pages and all kinds of fun activities that teach kids about the amazing stuff around them on St. Martin. The pandemic has created big challenges for educators and families. We hope these materials help parents, kids, teachers and youth groups during this time.”
Amuseum@Home activities are being published on the Les Fruits de Mer website every day. All of the materials feature the nature and heritage of St. Martin. Printouts of coloring pages and activities are also available at Amuseum Naturalis in French Quarter. Teachers and youth group leaders are encouraged to contact the association for additional resources and materials.
