My Virtual Visits story in the April issue of Chicago Parent

I wrote a story for Chicago Parent Magazine this month that I thought Wee Windy City readers might find interesting.

After all, you are reading this blog because you are looking for great activities for your kids in and around Chicago, right?

Virtual Visits is about all of the interactive online resources offered by many leading Chicago cultural institutions. For example, if a trip to the Art Institute isn't in the cards for your kiddos this week, you can still check out Curious Corner, the Art Institute's excellent online site for little art-lovers.

Similarly, many other Chicago-area museums have a good selection on online resources that kids can take advantage of -- either to prepare for a trip to see the real thing or as an alternative learning opportunity.

Interested in learning more? You can pick up the April issue of Chicago Parent or have a look at the online version here.

By the way, for those of you who have left-handed kiddos at home, you can also check out my story about practical tips for raising your southpaw. This story is inspired by three generations of lefties in my own family -- my Dad, myself, and now my almost-four-year-old son Brendan.

Up next on Wee Windy City: great offerings for kiddos at the Chicago Humanities Festival.
