Avoid Summer Brain Drain with Netflix #StreamTeam

Avoid summer brain drain by giving your little ones a brain-power boost by introducing them to something new with Netflix—whether you choose a documentary about dinosaurs or go on a math adventure to the moon, we hope everyone has fun learning even when outside of the classroom.


Avoid Summer Brain Drain

Once my kids get out of school they always need give their brains a little rest. However, when they are away from the process of learning for too long, it seems more difficult to not only get them back into it, but also to pick up where they left off. The weather this summer is very odd by us. It has been more like Fall at times than Summer. We have not had a lot of weather hot enough to enjoy our pool. Also, because it is summer, many of their friends are on vacation. If my kids are going to watch something on TV, I’m thankful they enjoy Netflix and the documentaries they show there. This is a great way to keep kids’ brains engaged without the BBC. My oldest daughter, Megan, loves anything to do with our environment, so “The Blue Planet” is a perfect fit for her.

For my little one’s, “Turtle The Incredible Journey” is one they love watching. We visit Florida during most summers and have been there when they release Sea Turtles into the water. Another favorite of theirs is Leap Frog’s “Math Adventure Moon”.

Other than that, Megan is keeping up with her math skills by practicing her math facts on a website call XtraMath. I love that this online site keeps things really short, but sweet with the math facts. I even get reports on her progress whenever she does a session. It is recommended they do only one session a day, which is only about 5 minutes!

I love to hear how you avoid the Summer Brain Drain with your kids! Leave a message below letting me know what you do!
