This last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending an event at the Seattle Science Center hosted by PBS Kids. The idea behind this event was to promote some of PBS Kids' newest apps, but PBS Kids also had some important and exciting information to share about things they're doing in our local communities. I was floored at the amount of help they have provided to a community in need, so close the place that I call home!
PBS Kids was already one of Elliott's favorite apps (she loves to watch almost every show/episode on that app.......over and over and over again), but after hearing about some new games, features, and local charity work by PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, I couldn't wait to sit down and really check all of it out with Ellie. That's kind of the big picture behind their efforts.........getting parents involved in early learning. I love that they tout parents as a child's first and best teacher, and I'm eager to dig into some new online games and start learning with Ellie!
Check out the PBS Kids Lab, where you can explore games and activities based on certain criteria such as child's age, subject area, skill level, etc.
The event itself was super fun and very relaxed. Kids were free to play, explore, and later test-drive many of the new games. Parents got to eat, chit-chat, listen to a few speakers, and then explore the new games and apps with their kids. The best part of our day? Meeting Cat in the Hat. Obviously.
A big thanks to PBS Kids for this event, and also for the hard work in our communities. I've never felt so connected to a "big" corporation like this! They've got my support.......and Ellie's!
