My daughter and I spend a lot of time on YouTube. I was telling a friend about all the fun things we watch, and she wanted to know exactly what we watch, because she had never gone to YouTube.. especially with her kids!
So I thought I’d make a favorites list here, for all to enjoy:
Baby Sea Turtle Hatching
People swimming with Whale Sharks
Wild Sea Horse
Dancing, harmonica playing baby Elephant!
Kid Yoga Moves
Gymnastics Floor Exercises
This is a short list. We just search on things that interest us at the moment. She finds it fascinating and it seems to encourage her to want to try something new, or learn something new. You need to be pretty careful on YouTube though. I’ve stopped searching on characters (wonder pets, dora etc). Most of them have been doctored to be adult humor that is not appropriate for your little one. Unfortunately, you usually don’t find this out in time! The videos are rated but I just like to avoid it altogether. Sports, animals, pets, songs, are generally fine and FUN to watch! We also like to watch games and songs that children in other parts of the world play and sing.
A couple of months ago I posted many of our most popular names. I thought it might be interesting to see some of our common… but not too common names! These are names that we do see regularly, but certainly not every day.
What an exciting day for all your little ghouls & goblins! I’m just waiting for mine to come through the door from her fun day at daycare. How will I ever get her to bed tonight? This is her first real Halloween – so I’m not sure what to expect. I’m going to try the “three pieces of candy only” advice.. but we’ll see!
I hope the weather is good for you and everyone has a fun and safe evening in the neighborhood!
