With so many children at home for the next few weeks, WFRN wants to help make your life a little easier. We have added an additional airing of "Adventures in Odyssey" at 11 am, Monday - Friday for your children (and maybe you too!). It will continue to air at its original time of 7:30 pm as well.
We've also gathered a mix of educational and just plain fun experiences, activities and crafts for you and your children to help keep their minds learning and busy. More will be added as we go along. Visit us on Facebook and give us your favorite ideas! As always parents, please "be careful little eyes what you see". Take precaution and be present whenever children are using the internet in addition to using safety/filtering programs.
