Disclosure: We received a Vortexx brand arts and crafts kit. This post represents our unbiased opinion.
With the youth sports season in full effect now, it seems like the days of lazy Saturday morning are over. D and I work hard during the week and always appreciate a bit of extra sleep on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, the boys are always “Go, Go, Go” bright and early every day. On week days that attitude is perfect for getting ready for school, but on weekends mom and a dad need a bit of rest. Fortunately, the boys do not watch much T.V. during the week, that is why it is an extra special treat to put on the Vortexx Saturday morning lineup on The CW.
We usually start with Sonic X at 8am and then move on to Bolts & Blip, The Spectacular Spider-Man and then Justice League Unlimited. This block is basically every single thing that the boys absolutely love: Superheroes, Robots and…Sonic (don’t ask me why, but that speedy hedgehog has has a ridiculously long run and judging by the reactions of the boys that run does not look like it is going to stop.) The shows keep the boys entertained and allow for either D or Ito get some extra sleep or be able to put breakfast together.
To go along with our favorite Saturday morning block of shows, Vortexx has sent us a load of D.I.Y crafts for us to play with while watching the shows. I like the idea of combining something creative like arts and crafts with watching Saturday morning cartoons as it adds a bit of learning and imagination as well keeps the boys entertained during the commercials. Check out some of the great stuff the the boys and their friends did:
The Vortexx line up has a little bit of everything for all ages, I even sit down and watch a couple of the shows myself. You can watch the Vortexx on Saturday’s on the CW, check your local listing for more details. The line up starts with The Adventures of Chuck and Friends at 7am and finishes with Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal at 11:30. If you want to see the full list of shows head here: myvortexx.com/show_schedules.
