For those travelling this bank holiday safe motoring. For those staying put like ourselves, below are some Netflix picks to keep the kids entertained over the long weekend.
For the Kids
- The old reliables Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Fireman Sam are all now streaming. The return of Fireman Sam was big hit in The Mamma Fairy house!
- New to Netflix is a seried called Word Party. Word Party is a vocabulary building show from The Jim Henson Company that follows four baby animals as they sing, dance and play. See link here for a peak. Its very catchey and keeps both my litte men entertained.
- My little niece loves both The Magical School Bus, for which Seasons 1-4 are now streaming as well as Masha and the Bear which will have Season 2 from 1 August.
So lots of variety to keep the little ones entertained. See some of our previous Netflix posts here and here to see what else has been keeping my little men entertained on Netlfix over the last couple of months.
For the Family
Netflix also has plenty family shows and films, some of our favourites include the Fireman Sam movie, Charlottes Web, Shark Tale, Chicken Run and the Shrek films. Keep an eye out for Beat Bugs which launches on 3 August. Im looking forward to this myself!
Beat Bugs is a new animated TV show inspired by music from The Beatles, incorporating songs from the Lennon/McCartney ‘Northern Songs’ catalogue sung by musicians including P!nk, James Corden, Aloe Blacc, Sia and Eddie Vedder. See the show’s theme song here
The Grown ups
Im looking forward to starting to watch Strager Things. Have heard so much about this series so cant wait to get stuck in! Its a Netflix-original drama staring Winona Ryder.
There is plenty to keep kids and adults alike entertained this long weekend.
