Using PBS Kids to avoid travel meltdowns

Summer is the perfect time to travel. The kids are out of school and ready to enjoy new adventures!  Parents spend hours upon hours planning each leg of their family’s journey but often forget about the most important part of their trip- the mid-trip entertainment.  Active preschoolers and inquisitive children enjoy filling their travel time with games, videos, and more!  PBS has a wealth of activities that engage children in reading, math and science while they are on the go. Here are a few highlights:

  • Download the PBS Kids Video App to enjoy videos from your favorite PBS KIDS shows such as Curious George, Sid the Science Kid, Dinosaur Train! 
  • Be a trip detective with Oh Noah!  While traveling around the city or on a long car trip, challenge your child to identify items you pass in Spanish!
  • Print the Cyberchase Activity Book to enjoy challenges, puzzles and games! 

Whether you are flying, riding, or driving make sure you have activities to keep kids engaged and entertained.  Happy trails!
