Guys, this is the COOLEST website EVER! It is so great, that I wish I had done it.
I really mean that. Are you a parent who:
This website provides all of that. I love it!
The Kid Should See This (TKSST) is an amazing website that culls the internet for videos that were not necessarily made for kids, but are super great for them. Founder Rion Nakaya and her two young sons scour the internet and find great videos from TED, DIY, Edutopia and other places. They have a particular interest in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) topics, and don't think that things need to be dumbed down in order for kids to understand them. (Bravo!)
Here are all of the topics they cover:
They also have a crazy goodgift guide that has really fabulous ideas that I have never seen before.
I know that I am totally gushing right now, but I can't help it! Yesterday my kids and I watched two cute, little elderly Asian women get ready to go to work. They put on their bonnets, took their carts with them, and waved to the neighbors as they walked. They are the sweetest looking grandmothers. Their job? Waiting in the rocks on the seashore in the dead of night to catch poisonous snakes by hand. With no protective clothing whatsoever. What?! You can't make this stuff up! It was equal parts hilarious and scary.
Then we saw a man work a lost art of sculpting suckers into realistic animals and paint them. And then we learned how to make our own toothpaste. It is all so fascinating!
We could have watched these videos for a long time, and I suspect this will become a permanent fixture in our home. Plus, it is so great to have something to turn on when my kids want something to watch that won't kill brain cells! :)
I am thrilled to have found The Kid Should See This, and I hope you give it a try, too!
Community Question: What is the coolest video for kids of all ages that you've seen? Share it with us!
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
