We usually take a lot of car trips throughout summer – to the lake, to the beach, and some day trips in between.
This, of course, is on top of our usual time spent driving to & from activities in the minivan. Sometime I use our portable DVD players as a crutch for longer car rides, but it is obviously not the best thing for my boys. Plus listening to endless episodes of Team Umizoomi & Mega Man gets a little old after a while. The other option is listening to kid music, which can be fine in small doses; but isn’t the most enjoyable thing either.
Luckily, kid-friendly podcasts have been gaining popularity! Some of these focus on story-telling, while others tackle science topics… but I can tell you that I enjoy listening to these podcasts just as much as my children do!
