Our Sesame Street friends are stepping up to support children and families during the COVID-19 health crisis during this "for now normal" time of social distancing and staying at home.

As part of Sesame Street's #CaringForEachOther initiative comes the furriest virtual playdate on the planet! Elmo's Virtual Playdate airs on Tuesday, April 14 at 6 p.m. CST. In addition to the entire Sesame Street gang, the playdate also includes Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anne Hathaway and Tracee Ellis Ross. Kids can look forward to songs, games and more fun. 

Elmo's Virtual Playdate airs on HBO, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, truTV and PBSKids. 

In addition, you can also access Sesame Street in Communities for resources on talking to your kids about COVID-19, managing the uncertainty and comfort strategies. The site includes videos, printables and learning-at-home resources.
