Each day, join LittleGuide on a themed adventure full of activities, crafts, nature and games that will help you and your littles have fun at home. The Motor City is our home – here’s how we can celebrate the city that put the world on wheels.
CRAFTS, ACTIVITIES + GAMES

READ, WATCH + LISTEN
- Read ABCDetroit by Kari Jo Wagner

SNACKS, MEALS + TREATS
- Start the day off right with Guernsey’s chocolate milk
- Chef’s choice – Detroit-style pizza or coney dogs for dinner
- Make Cream Puffs with Guernsey’s vanilla ice cream and Sanders fudge
- Toast to Detroit with Faygo or Vernors (add vanilla ice cream to make it a Boston Cooler)
We know that times are hard and resources can be scarce. Please note that these activities are simply meant to be a guide to help you fill the day and inspire ideas that fit your family. Try all of the activities, just a couple, or simply watch a movie and cuddle on couch – whatever makes your family feel happy and safe during times of uncertainty is the best thing to do.
