Just because school and extracurricular activities are now in full swing doesn't mean you can't have a little fun on a rainy day. Besides, there are plenty of entertaining things to do at home when Mother Nature has other plans, whether it's puzzles, trying some new indoor games, or letting your little budding photographer fine-tune their skills.
And if your little one has a musical inclination, you can also keep them occupied with some fun music videos. But if they're tired of watching the same ones on repeat, we've got ten under-the-radar ones they probably haven't seen before.
If you're looking for a song that will transport you back to your childhood, "The Turn Around" by Sing Along Tim Manchin is it. With its groovy beats and retro Sesame Street vibes, it's like a time machine to a simpler time...sigh! And the music video is just as adorable, with kids dancing and having fun.
Sing Along Tim has done it again, this time with a hilarious video about adjacent cats and their weird ways. The tune is retro and catchy, of course, but the real star of the music video is the guy in the cat costume. We can't stop laughing!
If you're a fan of music videos that are as beautiful as they are meaningful, this one from Sing Along Tim is a must-watch. With stunning visuals of nature and an important environmental message, it's a feast for the eyes and the soul. Pro tip: After watching this music video, take a step towards a greener future and plant a tree with your family. It's a small action that can have a big impact and be a teaching moment about respect for the environment.
If your mini-me is a dancing machine, this bee-themed music video will put their dance skills to the test. It's got a folksy feel and bright colors, and the choreography is totally buzz-worthy. And Mom and Dad, you're in luck! The song itself has a laid-back vibe and won't make you want to rip your hair out (sorry, Baby Shark), like some other kiddie tunes.
Who said kindergarten was just about finger painting and nap time? Turns out, it's also about learning the months of the year! But let's be real, no kindergartener wants to memorize a boring list of months. That's why this music video is a game-changer! It's like a cheat sheet for all the important holidays and events throughout the year, and the tune is so catchy that your kiddo will never forget them.
Fire safety is important for everyone, especially kids who are just learning about it in school. To help the message stick, show them this music video from Patty Shukla. It's got everything they need to know about stop, drop, and roll, plus a rock-and-roll beat that will get them moving and grooving.
Chances are, your kid is probably already speaking another language in school, so why not add sign language to their impressive list? This video makes learning sign language easy with a poppy tune and clear instructions to learn all the letters of the alphabet. Who knows, you might learn something too!
Get ready to rock out in your hiking boots, boys and girls! This music video will take you on a tour of the Rocky Mountains, showcasing all the natural beauty that awaits you. And who knows, you might even convince Mom and Dad to plan a trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park after watching it...wink..wink!
Happy? More like hungry! This adorable parody music video about picnicking is a must-watch. Just make sure you've had a snack before hitting play.
CBC Kids puts a fun spin on the Canadian national anthem in this music video that showcases the best of Canada from A to Z. From Niagara Falls to Quebec to Yukon, there's a letter for everything here...including Z! You'll be humming along in no time!
