In from the cold

It has turned cold, here in Canada! Not super-cold, but light flakes are falling. My three year old daughter doesn’t seem to ‘get’ that it is cold. Is that strange? She refuses to wear mitts, then complains that her hands are cold. She thinks she can still ride her scooter everywhere she goes, then complains that its cold. She will NOT wear snow pants. Will she get over this? So strange.. she likes the outside, but she seems to be in denial. I am too.. but I’m old and don’t particularly like winter. She seems to like winter – but won’t dress for it. Lots of complaining…

Here’s hoping she gets over this soon!

YouTube for kids!

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!
Jelly Fish
Kid Yoga Moves
Gymnastics Floor Exercises

Ballet Dancers

Irish Dancers

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.
