At-Home Activities

With those of us who have little ones at home, many of us have the opportunity to spend some quality time with them, even if it’s under these challenging circumstances. Staff here at the Bensenville Park District have set up this webpage to share at-home activity ideas with you; these are both ideas we have come up with, along with great ideas we have found online. We will update this page regularly so check back often. Please send us photos of you sharing smiles at home with your little ones, we miss seeing all your faces!
