Summer is just about here. Around here, that means lots of time playing outside. While being outside is wonderful, and it’s a great way to get the Vitamin D our bodies need, there are harmful rays that we must be aware of.
I don’t know about your kids, but when I pull out the sunblock, I get a round of groans and complaints. “Come on, Mom.” “Why do I have to wear that again?” “It takes too long to put it on.” “I’ll stay in the shade.” “We’re not going to be outside for that long.” And while I tell them, (over and over again), how important it is to put sunscreen on every time you go outside, it doesn’t matter. Now, thanks to Sid the Science Kid and the Sid’s Special Sunny Dad’s Day episode, they understand the ways sunscreen works to protect their bodies. They also learned about the many different and awesome ways the sun helps our earth.
Earlier this month, the Sid the Science Kid: Weather Kid Sid DVD was released. Thanks to the Henson Company, we had the opportunity to review this new DVD for ourselves.
Our Review of Weather Kid Sid
This was such a great DVD! I already told you about my favorite episode that’s on the DVD. I loved that the story reflected the important facts about sunscreen that I’ve shared with my kids. (For some reason, to a kid, it’s just better to hear it from a cartoon character than it is from Mom.)
Not only is the Sid’s Special Sunny Dad’s Day episode on the DVD, there are also 3 other episodes: Sid’s Rainy Play Date, Sid’s Cool Holiday, and The Wind Did It Sid. Each of these episodes cover different weather topics and help answer all those questions that kids have. Sid learns where rain comes from and why it’s so important to our earth. He also learns that it was the wind that blew away the pile of leaves he worked so hard to rake up. And he learned that the wind is strong enough to make sand dunes, waves, and even move sail boats! He also learns that even though it’s warm where he is during the winter, it’s not warm all over the world.
The Sid the Science Kid: Weather Kid Sid DVD is such a fantastic way to get kids excited about learning. Weather is an important part of our world, and this DVD shows kids just how important it is. We all give the DVD 2 very big thumbs up and would recommend it to anyone that’s a fan of Sid the Science Kid or of learning.
