These YouTube Channels Will Keep Kids So Entertained, They Won't Realize They're Learning
Finding YouTube videos for kids to watch that are fun, educational, and don't drive you crazy can be a challenge. And it's one I know well — my kids love YouTube, so "Baby Shark" is always in rotation at my house, along with the rest of my kids' playlist, which should be titled "Songs My Mom Never Wants to Hear Again."
While I know the old standbys aren't going anywhere, it's nice to have some alternatives for the days when I will lose it if I have to listen to the kid from "Johny Johny Yes Papa" lie to his dad about eating sugar one more time. YouTube is the internet's most popular video sharing platform, and because kids are more tech-savvy than ever, there's a good chance they are accessing the site on a regular basis. In fact, young people are watching less and less cable TV and instead turning to platforms like YouTube. But YouTube has a channel for just about everything, so it can be tough to narrow down videos that are kid-friendly, educational, and entertaining. Luckily, we're here to help. This list of YouTube channels covers everything from nursery rhymes to STEM learning and will make sure your kiddo's screen time counts.
