This Holiday Netflix has you Covered #StreamTeam

Netflix Canada

Whether you are changing your location (some like to call it “vacation” however with children it is no vacation so I prefer to call it a change of location) or having a staycation, there is always a moment of child boredom due to bad weather of any kind so that’s the moment you cuddle up on the couch with your mini’s and turn on the newest show Trollhunters which launched on December 23rd

Netflix Holidays

Want to hear the best news EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! You can now download … yes DOWNLOAD some of your child’s (or your) favourite shows for on-the-go. This actually couldn’t make me any happier because this big launch happened right before I was heading on a flight with my kids. I tested out this new download and they watched some of their favourite shows on the flight. Just a heads up though … not every show is available for download :(

Happy Holidays and a very happy and healthy New Year from both myself and Netflix

Try Explaining it with Netflix #StreamTeam

Netlfix

These days I find that I am having one way conversations with my kids, I am talking and nobody is listening. They either are running around the house hyper as can be, fighting with each other over g-d knows what or they have their heads dug into some tech device.

I have found that I can teach my kids a thousand lessons, but truly they couldn’t care less or they just tune me out, but if their favorite Netflix show teaches them the same lesson they somehow find it very interesting and repeat it to me as if I haven’t previously said the same thing!!!!

Looking for some show recommendations?

May Netflix

  1. The Hive – teaching you about sibling rivalry
    2. Veggietales: in the house – teaching about responsibility
    3. Puffin Rock – following the rules
    4. The Adventures of Puss in Boots – teach about self-love
    5. Project MC2 – all about teamwork
    6. Fuller House – Peer Pressure
    7. The Fosters – Actions have Consequences
    8. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Self-Improvement
    9. Glee – Body Image (one of my most favorite shows)

If your kids aren’t listening to you, try tackling some real life issues with some of these Netflix shows and see if that works for you.

Netflix Lego Madness #StreamTeam

Netlfix

Your kids get to a certain age where they discover Lego and then that’s it, all they want is Lego Lego and more Lego which was awesome for me because in some weird way I found building the Lego kits calming and quite addicting if I might say so myself. Then comes the moment you step on a piece and HOLY S*%!T you just wish Lego didn’t exist and then you look over and your little one is building the kit all by themselves and you just feel so proud!

We live for Lego in my house: we build Lego, we play with Lego and watch Lego movies. Thanks to Netflix, we just introduced my oldest guy to Lego Bionicle and it’s not just a Lego kit, but a Lego show! We built the Bionicle over March break and I foresee many Bionicles being built in my future.

Back to School with Netflix #StreamTeam

Netlfix

The weather has spoken and summer is coming to an end. Camp is over, programs for the fall have been set and your child’s back to school backpack is almost ready to go. Hard to believe that this is the end, it’s just too short.

Now it’s time to start hyping up back-to-school and talking to your kids about appropriate classroom behaviour (well at least I do) and what to expect, but that is never an easy conversation especially with the little one’s because they just don’t get it. Sometimes our television friends do the best job explaining and with these new Netflix titles they just might understand the underlying message.

For the Little Guys 

Back to School netflix

1. Curious George
2. Zoboomafoo
3. Yo Gabba Gabba! (my big guy has been watching the show for years and it’s amazing how many lessons he has picked up from this show)
4. Walking with Dinosaurs
5. Planet Earth: The Complete Collection
6. The Adventures of Chuck & Friends
7. Animal Mechanicals (teaches kids about working together to get the job done)
8. The Magic School Bus
9. The Cat in the Hat
10. Dinotrux (the new AMAZING series teaching kids to work together using their individual skills and problem solve)
11. Ever After High: Way too Wonderland

Best of luck with Back to School to you the parent (we need the luck … well I know I do) and of course the kiddies
