During our time at Quarantine finding things to keep the kids busy while we work but also entertained so that they don’t fight with each other has been a challenge. While we try to limit the amount of screen time that they have, it isn’t realistic that they are going to spend the entire day without going on at least once. This is especially difficult when the whether outside isn’t cooperating. Fortunately, there are a ton of entertaining and educational resources out there that are perfect for kids of all ages.
Recently we heard about Sony Pictures’ Kids Zone on Youtube, which recently launched and has a good amount of kid friendly activities that have an educational component but also are interactive and fun. Once of the videos we check out was GOOSEBUMPS 2: Science with Slappy which was one of the bonus features for the blu-ray/DVD which features castmembers from the movie as well as the famous talking dummy, Slappy!
We performed one of the experiments in the video which used the scientific method of testing in order to see what happens to various gummies as they are put in different liquids for an amount of time. We took a quick video of the experiment and the results.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to eat the gummies after the experiment was over.
The Sony Pictures Kids Zone has a ton of content from their kids friendly movies from Angry Birds all the way to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The videos talk about a variety of topics including how the films were made as well as special features on the characters and how to draw them, lyrics to popular songs in the movies as well as projects that kids can do themselves.
