Educational Podcasts For Little Learners!



Happy Holiday Weekend Families!


I hope you all have a restful 4 day weekend ahead and some fun plans! As some of you may be traveling with your littles this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to give you a list of educational podcasts that I guarantee your littles will love listening to! Podcasts are a wonderful alternative if you're trying to cut down on screen time. Research has shown, in some cases, that the blu light from a screen can lead to stimulation in the brain. Many of us use tv time as a means to wind down, but it may actually be causing our brains to stay awake longer. Podcasts are an amazing alternative. Podcasts can also be a great car ride activity, early morning activity, quiet time activity, or dinner out activity for your little. It will heighten their listening skills and still make learning fun! I've got a list of some of the best educational podcasts for your little listeners!
