¡Has un Cubrebocas en Casa!

​As part of Governor Pritzker’s modified Executive Stay-At-Home Order, face-coverings or masks are now required to be worn by anyone 2 years of age and older while out in public and in non-public places where social distancing of at least 6 feet is not always possible. 

With this in mind, your IAFC Early Learning Program teachers wanted to help you talk to your kids about face-coverings—and help you learn how to make them yourself!




These activities are meant to be done with you and your children! They include safe outdoor fun, indoor physical activities, science experiments, literacy and math activities, and more.
