My Favorite Childrens Programs

As a mother of a seven year old, a toddler and a two month old, it can sometimes be difficult to get things done without one or the other demanding my attention. I try not to be one of those moms who parks her kids in front of the TV, but every once in a while a distraction is needed. Here are my favorite children's programs for my kids.

Wild Kratts – PBS
Wild Kratts focuses on the Kratt brothers, who go on adventures to explore the “creature powers” of many different animals. Each episode starts out with the Kratt brothers introducing a particular animal. It then changes into a cartoon where the Kratts go on crazy adventures and make creature suits so they can use the powers of those particular creatures and experience their world. My seven year old loves this show.

Sesame Street - PBS
Who doesn't love Sesame Street? I remember watching this show as a child. My daughter watched it when she was little. She loved Elmo! I don't think my son has really identified his favorite character yet. My favorite part of this show recently is the celebrity appearances. Athletes, actors, singers, you name it, they are on Sesame Street. My husband said that he thinks you know you've made it when they ask you to be on Sesame Street.

Here are some of my favorites:
Bruno Mars – Don't Give Up – What I Am
Jim Parsons – Arachnid
And, my daughter's favorite – Pentatonix Counts (& Sings) To Five

Peg + Cat - PBS

Peg and her amazing cat solve problems and teach kids about math concepts. It's a great show full of music and humor. Peg and her cat sure get in some silly situations! My favorite part? When Raomne steps in to help, he always ends with “I do what I can!”
