Looking for some fun, educational, frugal choices for your family as summer wanes away?
I was surprised to learn that these DVDs are currently selling for a great price right now!
When my girls were younger, they didn't fully understand Liberty's Kids programs on PBS, although Kelsi did enjoy them. Brittany was simply too young at the time to figure out what they were about.
So maybe this seems silly to you, but it made perfect sense to me. When I saw that the complete series of Liberty's Kids on DVD was priced at under $7, I was thrilled! That's 40 episodes - woot!
We won't be diving back into U.S. history for a couple more years, so this is a fun way to watch the beginnings of our nation and have some fun while watching and learning together with the DVD!
Brittany, at age 13, definitely understands what's going on in the DVD now - and while history isn't her favorite educational subject, she'd rather "watch" history instead of "read" history, so it's a win-win for all involved. We're all enjoying watching this together!
Don't worry. I'll "make" her read more about U.S. history when we reach that point in our history studies again. :) I'm one of those "mean mommas."
My girls loved-loved-loved The Magic School Bus episodes on PBS when they were younger. I'll admit it: my children are officially too old for The Magic School Bus anymore, but I still think they are made very well and present a broad exploration of a topic. A few episodes point back to evolutionary concepts, which may or may not bother you as a parent - just so you are aware of this.
I don't remember us ever being able to view Where on Earth is Carmen SanDiego, but I do remember having an inexpensive computer game featuring Carmen SanDiego. It was a bit hit in our home!
These educational DVDs are priced well for families and libraries. I don't know how long they will be priced like this, although I do know that the Liberty's Kids DVD has been at lower prices off and on this summer.
What are your favorite children's educational DVDs?
