Children’s Hour Returns!

Scarecrow Video’s Children’s Hour is a virtual version of the program we’ve offered since 2015. It’s a combination of storytime, clips from our video archive (the world’s largest of its kind!), arts activities and science experiments. A part of Scarecrow’s community outreach efforts, Children’s Hour has long been a family favorite for free, educational arts programming in the Seattle area.

The theme for series three is Heroes! Join us each week for a new video.
