I can’t believe that we’re already at the end of July. Where has the summer gone?! It seems like just yesterday that my daughter was celebrating the last day of school. But, in less than a month, she’ll have to start up the new year. In the meantime, we have been trying to figure how to keep her mentally engaged. The girl has WAY too much time on her hands these days and we need to prevent that summer slide.
Shows for Kids to Prevent Summer Slide
Fortunately, during her free time, she can watch shows on Netflix while still learning something. Animaniacs is full of facts (some slightly skewed) about history, geography, health, and 90’s pop culture. The bouncy, silly songs that I once learned as a teen can now get stuck in her head for the summer. 😛
Netflix had a few ideas to share. Of those, two really stood out to me. Are your kids into dance? Then they can learn how to arabesque among many other things with the Little Einsteins.
More into the ins and outs of time travel and key facts from history? The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show, a Netflix Original Series, is oozing with info to fill little minds.
Of course, there are plenty of other show your kids can enjoy while learning (without knowing it). Try checking these shows out as a family.
- Sid the Science Kid
- Project Mc2
- The Magic School Bus
- Super Why!
- The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That
With just a few more weeks of summer left, we don’t want our kids’ minds to turn to mush before the new school year starts. Why not take advantage of these shows with helpful facts cleverly weaved in so as to exercise those brains a bit?
What other shows are your kids watching this summer?
I received a year subscription of Netflix and a device to stream the content as part of the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are my own.
