Reimagining babysitting for the modern family.

ACTIVITIES FOR BABYSITTING

We make virtual babysitting fun.

From virtual games to story telling, our sitters are trained to make your child's virtual experience as best as possible.

Themed Activities

Tired of no one listening to you talk about your favorite book? Want someone to read out loud to you?

In our book discussions  at VirtuSit, that’s exactly what we do! Get grouped with a Sitter, and you can talk and ask questions about the book! Want to discuss a book you have in common? Our sitters are equipped to talk on end about any book! We can also read together, or read silently and then discuss! The possibilities are endless. Adaptable for all ages.

Arts and crafts

Paper Crafts

Want to make toilet paper more sacred by using its rolls? Interested in Origami?

Come no further! Our sitters have lots of crafts up their sleeves, that can go from the quick toilet-paper-owl to the careful paper folding of paper squares. From this lesson, you will have a great art project as an outcome! Kits available, adaptable for all ages. Toilet paper not included.

Exercise

TikTok Dance Lesson

Have you seen your neighbors or siblings doing weird dances, but can’t figure out how to do them?

Our trained dancers are there for you!  We are never going to show any online content to your child without your written advance permission. What our awesome dancers can do is break down the moves of some fun and trendy dances, and teach your kid some moves! They can also teach them popular LM classics, like the Cupid Shuffle or Cotton-Eyed Joe. Adaptable for all ages.

The Civil War? Scientific discoveries? Dinosaurs? You can learn all about history in a VirtuSit history lesson! Does your child like to read about historical figures or events? We would love to help them round out their knowledge and bring history alive through fun discussion.  If you sign up for this lesson, get ready to be a historian! From the big bang to the SpaceX launch, from the fall of the Roman empire to the OIF/OEF wars, there are no limits. Adaptable for ages 6 and up.

Calling all scientists! In this interactive lesson, you can learn about everything and anything you might need to know for elementary, middle, and high school science. Give your child a jump start in chemistry, physics, or biology with an interactive lesson teaching basic concepts. Learn about atoms, molecules, and the types of bonds, using basic (not too messy, we promise) kitchen materials. Learn about cells, DNA, the types of species, and more through fun discussions and simple paper cutouts. Discover the simple properties of physics! Does your child love to ask questions about how and why things work in the physical world? We are happy to help them explore some of those answers through an understanding of basic physics and other science! Adaptable for all ages.

Like our website and want to make one just like it? Want to learn how to code a game? You can do that all in a VirtuSit coding lesson. The Sitters who teach this excel in coding and can teach you HTML, Python, C++, Java, and Bash. We can teach you a basic understanding of coding, or expand on previous knowledge! Want to learn how to pull off cool tricks on a Mac, or make it look like you are hacking on Linux? The possibilities are endless. Most appropriate for ages 8 and up.

Are you a dancer, or going to be? Need to stretch/strengthen because you can't go to dance or the gym? VirtuSit is the place to do so. Have a sitter do hamstrings, abs, leg muscles, and breathing exercises, and some others! No equipment is needed. Not a dancer? Our instructor will be happy to adapt the workout  to your level. Adaptable for all ages.

Other Activities

LEGOs

Do you enjoy LEGO?

We encourage the child to build, talk, and create together through virtual collaboration. This can range from helping to complete a kit by working through the booklet, which we require advanced notice for, to parallel creative builds. Our sitters have been using LEGOs for over a decade, and we can elevate the LEGO building experience to make it fun for your child.

Instrument Practice

Music is more fun with company! Are you missing your band or orchestra? Is playing over Zoom not doing it enough for you?

This is where VirtuSit instrument lessons come in! With a sitter, you can play the same (or different) instruments together, learn a new song together, or just have an audience to listen while your child practices! We are not offering to teach something new, we are just supporting them. Whatever you play, VirtuSit can play too! Adaptable for all ages.

Games

Are you the imaginative type? The board game type?

We are too! In this VirtuSit activity, you can do anything from reenacting battles to playing Battleship! We can work with your child to develop a story, to play family, or to play a card game, or even chess! All games will be played over websites such as chess.com, and will require additional parental consent. Adaptable for all ages.

Just Talk

Do you like to ask deep questions and explore hypotheticals? Do you often just enjoy ranting to a listening audience, or telling stories?

Well here at VirtuSit, we do too! Sit down with our specialized “what if”  experts, and talk to us! We are all ears, and so much more. Letting those random  ideas flow,  learning how to develop a thought and how to build an argument are important for your child’s intellectual development. We would love to inspire, listen, give feedback and engage your child in a satisfying discussion. Adaptable for all ages.
