HAPPY NEW YEAR from all of us at Connecticut Public!

Try these festive games and videos to make time on the road fly by:

1. Celebrate Nochebuena and Three King’s Day with Alma in this episode of Alma’s Way. Three King’s Day is traditionally celebrated in Spain and Latin American nations on January 6 as a day of gift-giving, parades, and family festivities that close the Christmas holiday season until next year.

2. Play Hide & Seek with Elinor and friends! Elinor Wonders Why encourages children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don't understand, and find answers using science inquiry skills.

3. In the Fish Force with Ruff Ruffman game, solve problems and answer questions through experimentation.

4. Go on a holiday learning adventure with Sid the Science Kid and learn about hot and cold temperatures. Then play Snowflake Match with Sid and friends!

5. Make New Year’s resolutions with your favorite Odd Squad characters in this episode excerpt!
