By now you have likely encountered the world of podcasts and if not, you have at least heard of them. Podcasts are a huge part of my life and I enjoy listening to them while I shower, while I drive and most recently with my 4 year old son. The podcast world has a lot to offer both children and families and today, I would like to share some of my top finds with you.
This one is so lovely when you are putting your child to bed or just sitting down to meditate. It offers some guided imagery and breathing activities to help them relax. This has become a nightly routine for my son and I and he never forgets to ask for it! The narrator has such a calm, relaxing voice.
What If World
This one allows the listeners to send in their questions and the narrators will act out the answer in a funny, creative story for kids. You can expect stories like, "What if Robots Turned into Dragons" and "What if it Rained Candy".
Little Stories for Tiny People
This one offers original children's stories which are read in a very engaging way to captivate the children. They are quite long as well with some around 25 minutes in length. A great option for a drive or while you are cooking dinner.
This is a science podcast geared toward kids. The podcast is run by a scientist and they discuss scientific discovers in a family friendly way. I would say this is more appropriate for the elementary school crowd.
Wow in the World
Another great science podcast for little listeners. Learn about black holes, germs, the earth and more!
