Listening to Podcasts with Kids

As you know, Lockdown has increased and you might be running out of ideas to keep your kids and yourself sane during the quarantine. But, we never run out of ideas and I am always there to help you out by sharing my experience with the parents. 

In the series of fun activities to do with your kids during the quarantine period, the next alphabet is L and I have chosen L for listening to Podcasts. I know it is a little different from all the other activities that I have suggested. But, nowadays, there are a lot of Podcasts which helps to teach you a lot of things. 

It’s more like modern age storytelling to your kids. And, it will keep them engrossed with the story while you can work or you can listen with them as well.

There is no strategy to follow while listening to podcasts with kids. If you want a great choice of kid-friendly podcasts then you can search it on google and you will get a plethora of best podcasts that you can listen to with your kids. 

Currently, there are top 3 podcasts that I have been listening to my daughter, Angel. 

  • KidNuz : News can be boring for kids. But, Kidnuz makes the news interesting for the kids. And the best part, they have a quick quiz for your kids which can be interesting for your kids. 
  • What If World: Kids are super inquisitive about everything around them. And, this podcast makes kid-friendly stories based on the ‘What if’ questions. 
  • Brains On: If your kids have a knack for science, then you must listen to this podcast. It helps to encourage a kid’s curiosity by answering the kid’s questions.

Key Learnings 

If I don’t have the time while listening to podcasts with my daughter, then after each episode I tend to ask the summary of the episode and it makes her excited to tell what all she has learned through the podcasts. 

My Overall Experience

With the limited exposure to school, these podcasts can be interesting for the new age kids. Angel had a great time listening to them. If you need a list of all the favorite podcasts then let me know and I will write a blog about this!
