Yesterday I wrote a review about one of my favorite programs to watch with my kids, Dinosaur Train, today, I’m writing about my husband’s favorite show, Sid the Science Kid. NCircle Entertainment and PBS sent me a copy of Sid the Science Kid Weather Kid Sid to review with my family. I’m quite excited to have a new copy of Sid the Science kids because my husband is so fond of watching it with the kids.
Sid the Science Kid is about Sid and his friends and the discoveries they make at school. They have science lessons every day, as they sing, play and interact with one another just like children do every day. The feel of the show is so natural, every day Sid gets up, struggles to get his breakfast eaten, goes off to school and plays with his friends. He occasionally has a play date after school with his best friend Gabriela. Gabriela is my daughter’s favorite character because of the pigtails, but she is also partial to May and her purple hair.
Weather Kid Sid has four episodes with the first episode introducing the rain. They learned all about how the rain helps things to grow, and that it doesn’t just rain to ruin play dates. Another episode was about spending the day with his dad out in the sun. Sid was protesting the sun block, the same way mine did, but he learned all about why it was necessary to put on sun block.
Zoe and Miles both absolutely detest having sunscreen put on them. Miles has to be held down, and Zoe was the same way until she watched Sid The Science Kid, Weather Kid. After watching the episode about sunscreen she will tolerate it.
At school, Sid and his friends discover that sunscreen is a great way to protect your skin from the sun. And they also learn about the amazing ways the sun helps the Earth. Parents and their children can explore and learn more about sunscreen at the Sid the Science Kid official website at PBSKIDS.org/sid.
This was our conversation after she watched Sid the Science Kid.
Mommy, Sid doesn’t like sunblock
No he doesn’t does he sweetie?
But he wears it right?
Can I put some on you now?
Yeah, I won’t scream like bubby.
Thank You Baby
She lets me put it on her now without complaint. I missed the actual episode, I watched the rain episode with them, but I missed whatever conversation she had with her dad and what she actually learned from Sid. Whatever went on, I’m very grateful to be down to only one protesting child instead of two. You know, when you’re out in public and your child is screaming, other parents stare at you and give you looks.
So if your having issues with your kids, maybe their favorite cartoon character knows a thing or two about putting on sun block. Even the Imagination Movers sing about sun block.
