I’m a member of the Netflix Stream team and enjoy free streaming service. I have been a happy Netflix customer for 11 years, now and am thrilled to share about my experience.
I know you are probably feeling guilty by this point in the summer about how much screen time your kids are getting. I feel you. I’ve been trying to keep the kids engaged in other activities, but there are times when I just have to surrender and get Netflix rolling so that I can get some laundry done, make dinner or even have a complete thought without being interrupted.
But here’s the wonderful thing: Netflix has some great shows that are sneaking in those learning opportunities left and right! I can’t tell you how many times my children have busted out with some animal facts or dropped some science on me and when asked where they learned it, replied “Netflix!”
Perhaps the hottest hit for the summer for them is The Deep. They get to watch an episode several nights a week after dinner with their dad. It’s one you should most definitely check out!
We are also excited that another season of LEGO Friends: The Power of Friendship released a few new episodes. You might be surprised by the topics that get discussed in that one!
Little Einsteins is a regular for my youngest, and a regular source of knowledge for her, too!
And of course, if you really want to get some awesome history lessons in the mix, you will be delighted with Mr. Peabody & Sherman (and if you need a break and want to watch something fun with the kids, this is my personal top pick!).
So if you need to give in a little to the requests for screen time, offer a curated list of options that can be fun to watch and help your kids learn some cool new stuff.
What are your kids watching this summer? Any recommendations?
