15 Documentaries for Kids to Watch During the Slow Days of Summer
Pie loves animal-related shows and documentaries, so it's a great way for me to sneak a little life sciences into her summer vacation. There are documentaries on so many topics, it's easy to look for one your little one might enjoy. There have been many times I've turned to documentaries to answer Pie's many questions about the world. It's interesting to watch them with her and she loves to talk about what we learned. Today I'm sharing some awesome documentaries for kids, but always use your discretion for what is appropriate for your child. Some things scare Pie so we avoid them until she's ready. For the most I think part even slightly challenging content helps her deal with those fears in a well-informed, healthy, and logical way.
In no particular order here are 15 (well 20, SURPRISE! YAY bonus 5!!!) great summer documentaries for kids:
This wonderfully colorful documentary gets into some really great topics like pollination and the origination of flowers. We both enjoyed this one, Pie sat through the entire two hour movie and has since asked to watch it again.
