Virtual ZooToYou

Hey, parents! Need something to keep your kids occupied? Our Virtual ZooToYou programs bring the Phoenix Zoo’s animals to you in a whole new way. Connect with a Zoo educator on Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday at 9 a.m. as we have fun, while learning about the animals that call the Phoenix Zoo home. These 45-minute programs feature kid-friendly antics and activities including animal art, getting animals squeaky clean, becoming detectives and working out our wiggles. 

For children 3 – 8 years old. Each program covers a different topic with unique, kid-friendly activities. Virtual programs are held through Zoom. Join us! 

This program is designed for households, not for larger groups. If you’re looking for programming for a larger group (child care centers, camps, etc.), we have something special just for you! Check out Distance Learning!

Join us as we attempt to give some of the Zoo’s animals a bath. We’ll explore how animals stay clean without soap too. You may be surprised to see what the animals use to stay clean and healthy!

Animals are found all over the world. Join us as we discover exactly how animals are able to live in different habitats.

Need a way to get the wiggles out? Join us as we mimic animals and get moving! Make sure you have plenty of water and space to spread out for our wild animal aerobics!

Connect with us as we explore how different animals use their paws, claws, scales and tails. Wish there was an animal with the head of a lion and body of an elephant? You will have the opportunity to create your own unique creature right alongside us!

Calling all detectives and those who love mysteries! Something strange has happened at the Zoo. Put on your detective hats as we look for clues and find the animal culprit.

Join us as we give our ambassador animals the opportunity to paint whatever their hearts desire. Once they finish creating their masterpiece you will be sent a small piece of their artwork! What would a snake paint? How about an armadillo? Wait, how do they paint? Register to find out!
