How are the summer holidays going for you?
We’ve had a few wet days which have been declared “movie days” and the boys have chosen their favourites to watch.
Despite the AppleTV remote constantly going missing (it’s sooo tiny) we’ve been getting good use out of our Netflix subscription.
These days the boys are hooked on Team Umizoomi and since it’s educational I’m happy enough to let the watch it. (They’re still hooked on the old Disney Robin Hood movie too and I’m getting bored of it).
Other educational programmes on Netflix that younger kids might enjoy include Dora (try not to answer her questions yourself) and Bubble Guppies which the boys love too. We’re going to try out Monster Math Squad too.
There are loads of documentary style programmes that older kids can watch like The Life of Mammals and Walking with Dinosaurs. (the boys have sneaked a look at Walking with Dinosaurs and declared it “very cool”.)
I’ve also finally started watching the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black. The second series was recently made available but we’re only at the beginning of the first and enjoying it so far. My “to watch” list is getting long!
And to supplement the educational programmes Netflix have come up with a recipe to keep your kids’ brains ticking over- and it looks delicious. Pomegranate juice can be hard to come by so I think trying apple juice would work too. Here’s the link to Strawberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles
