It’s time to introduce your kids to podcasting!
With all the traveling and vacation time in the summer kids get a little loopy from all that freedom, especially when they are in a contained space, such as a car 😉
You can get a portable DVD player and buy tons of DVDs. You can have them use your iOS device or other tablet to watch Netflix or Hulu. Both of these are great ideas.
What if you don’t want to spend any money or have wifi or 3G connection? It’s time to give podcasts a shot.
The following are some of the most popular Kids Podcasts from Libsyn. Subscribe, download as many as you can and you have hours of entertainment at your fingertips!
The following podcast descriptions have all come from iTunes or the podcast’s about page
