Sunflower Hill Online Activities

In response to the Covid-19 Shelter-at-home Order, we have created Sunflower Hill Online Activities. Each activity is created to get you moving, learning, or just stepping outside for some fresh air!

Our heartfelt thanks to those who have supported our virtual programming: East Bay Community Energy, City of Pleasanton, Rotarian Foundation of Livermore, #GivingTuesdayNow donors, and our Sun’s OUT Fun’s OUT supporters!

Sunflower Hill Online Activities Year-in-Review
We launched our first Online Activity Video in response to the shelter-in-place order on March 23, 2020. What a year it’s been! We’ve had so much fun creating over 150 videos designed for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities! We’re extremely thankful to all who have supported our efforts, our collaborators, and participants! We hope that you’ll continue to watch our new online activities, as well as visit our website video archive. Perhaps you’ll find an old favorite, or discover something new that will inspire you to move, learn, and explore the world around you!
