All You Need is Love ... #BeatBugs Netflix Giveaway #StreamTeam

While August has been a total whirlwind for us with things like band camp, space camp, cheer practice, and cross country practice, we have most definitely taken time to come together to watch Netflix. I've said before Lily loves movie night--snack set up is her specialty!

Sometimes we don't have enough time in our busy day for an entire movie, but a super fun alternative has been a new Netflix Original series--Beat Bugs!  It's inspired by the music of the Beatles and everything I hoped it would be!  My mom was a big Beatles lover, so growing up their music was a part of my own childhood.  When Andrew was a baby was when the compilation album titled "1" was released in 2000, so he also grew up listening to the Beatles.  Now, there's a new way to have my little girls continue enjoying favorites.  And let me tell you, it has worked because as soon as we get in the car Violet requests, "Lucy in the Sky, Mommy!"  Mind you, she changes the lyrics to "Lucy in the sky with-out you," but it's absolutely adorable!

Thanks to five super cute bugs named Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz, and Walter, you have the opportunity to come together right now with your family with kid friendly storylines and music of The Beatles recorded by artists like P!nk, Jennifer Hudson, Sia, and Eddie Vedder!

Beat Bugs has been in heavy rotation on our Netflix playlist ALL month long! We all love it!  After all, all you need is love.♥

See?

Mom, Did You Know? #StreamTeam

"Mommy, did you know..."

I'm always amazed at the random facts my kids toss out in their day.  From the littlest to the oldest, I love learning what they know!

Violet loves to sing songs and even hmmm hmmm hmmms the music correctly when she watches anything. Lily is fascinated by the world around her and shares info about the solar system, math, things like the Liberty Bell, and even yesterday asked me if I knew George Washington when I was little.  I'm not that old, kid.

Andrew enjoys watching movies on Netflix like Back to the Future and then we have conversations about technology and capabilities and comparing decades.

Let's face it, kids learn all kinds of things from their environments. Tv is definitely one of those tools that teach. And as a mom and a teacher, I'm totally ok with that. Netflix, you can totally help me teach my kids!

The girls have been watching a lot of PowerPuff Girls or as Violet calls them, "Supah Girls."  I asked Lily why she likes the show and she simply replied, "Because girls can stop the bad guys too." Empowering girls? I'll take it.


Another favorite of Lily's is Monster Math Squad! She talks about math a lot and says, "I'm impressed with how smart these monsters are."  Teacher in the making, I think. :)


They've also really been enjoying the new Jim Henson Company Netflix original Word Party! Violet loves to sing her ABCs (hence her love of music), but she's beginning to recognize letters correctly too. The show follows Kip, Franny, Lulu, and Bailey as they learn new words. The idea is to foster a fun, simple learning environment and help little ones vocabulary grow!





Coming on 8/3, a perfect show for my little music lovers. Beat Bugs which features songs of the Beatles. I can't wait!
