Governor Launches “All in Illinois” Kids Content

Kids have a new place to learn and laugh thanks to a collab between Gov. JB Pritzker and some of the state’s best attractions.

The All In Illinois website will offer kid-friendly videos and activities from the Field Museum, John Deere Pavilion in Moline, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield and several attractions in southern Illinois.

New content will be released weekly over the next four weeks.

“Our goal is to provide fun and educational activities for children to engage with as we continue to be ‘all in’ and stay home to support each other through this challenging time,” Pritzker said in a media release. “This content series also offers a taste of a variety of family-friendly experiences that will be available to them, once it’s safe to visit.”

The content series kicks off with a video from Emily Graslie, chief curiosity correspondent at the Field Museum and host of “Brain Scoop,” a popular vlog on YouTube.

The state site will lead families to collections of coloring books, activity sheets and virtual field trips.
