We have converted some of our programs into at-home activity kits that families can use to keep kids engaged and learning while schools and GiGi’s Playhouse Indianapolis are closed. In addition some programs have a virtual component!  **All information will be loaded by Thursday, March 19.

Here is how it will work:

**Participates enrolled in a Spring Session 2 will receive an email today with information including kit pick up. These students will receive a program bag full of supplies for the next 3 weeks! Drive-thru pick up be tomorrow (3/19) 9-11 am or 6-7 pm

**Not enrolled…no worries! We have loaded our program information (Lesson/Videos/Student Handouts ) for you to participate! You will be responsible for assembling your own supplies.
