I have decided to devote Friday's post to something from my To Blog About list.
Today I am going to tell you about two of my kids favorite videos. These are our go to video's when we just need that moment for them to sit down and shut-up (or stop beating on each other, emptying cupboards, driving us insane.....).
plum vision has some online baby videos. They feature animals, objects and just interesting stuff for a baby or young child to look at. Top it off with catchy music and it's a winner! Another great bonus to this is that it is educational. Bess loves to sit with us and watch as we name off the animals the screen. Another part of the video has pictures of different things (fruit, teddy bear, shoe.. etc) floating and then it names it. Bess is now trying really hard to say the words with it. JJ just likes to watch the videos. If both kids are crying and fussying, we turn this on and they both quiet down.
Generally we don't want our kids watching too much tv. We would much rather them play or read. But sometimes it is just impossible to get anything done and a movie or tv time is just the trick. This mostly occures at when we are trying to make dinner. This seems to be the favorite fuss time for both kids.
Do your kids have some favorite videos? I would love to hear suggestions!
