Activity TV - Kids Activities With Video Directions

Activity TV is a great resource for anyone in search of hands-on activities for children of elementary school age. Activity TV features videos explaining and demonstrating hands-on projects that children can do alone or with the assistance and supervision of an adult. Each video is accompanied by a printable PDF containing the directions and materials list for each project.

The list of activities available on Activity TV include seasonally-themed activities, science activities, cooking activities, outdoor fun, crafts, and music making activities. Check out this video to learn how to make and play your own flute.
