Today we got to have a fun play date where we previewed some brand new Curious George shows! My eldest, 5, has always loved Curious George so it was a happy opportunity for her. She has inducted her younger sister into the show too. It is great for me to have something they can both watch and enjoy (30 minutes of “quiet” time to cook anyone?)
I have been a fan of Curious George ever since my eldest was 1 and I was ok with her watching some TV. I’ve had the DVR set up to record shows (on rotation) for over 2 years now! There are 2 episodes in a half hour slot and each episode ends with young children solving real math/science problems. In each episode George solves problems by subtly using math and science with objects that he finds around him – another thing I like about the show: it teaches children to care for the environment by recycling and using regular things around the house in a different ways. And of course, it introduces kids to nature!
The children got to run around the house and be curious themselves. There were a few discoveries of their own to be made! They colored in some butterflies, notice some symmetry going on! They got to measure different things around the house with some rulers. They discovered that the butterfly’s body is different lengths at different points. They got to measure their own heights with a cute growth chart! Who was the tallest?
Season 7 premiers THIS MONDAY, December 3rd, on your local PBS channel. Curious George takes a visit to Australia! If you’ve watched Curious George before it’s definitely up to the same standard as previous seasons!
I hope you enjoy the new shows as much as we did! And get out and get discovering!

I met Lynn in MOMS Club and she has two children. One of which is the same age as my daughter and they love to giggle and play together. Lynn Hooper is also a local Mary Kay Consultant while also being a full time mom. “A lot of what the business stands for is true to my heart. Mary Kay Inc. has a foundation that donates funds to help end domestic violence and also funds research into cancers that affect women. Mary Kay also has what’s called "The Golden Rule" which means God (faith) first, family second and business third. A great principal for me and nice to know I am part of a team that believes in this too.”
