Spending 20 hours (one way) on a plane with four young children under six is probably not anyone’s idea of having a relaxing time and I’ll admit I had been quite worried about how the kids would go on such long flights. Of course I had prepared them a backpack each filled with little distractions but I was also hoping the Singapore Air in-flight entertainment would offer some relief. It was a lovely surprise to see their favourite Disney Junior shows were just a few clicks away, just what we needed to keep them happy!
While we don’t have the Disney Junior TV Channel at home we regularly visit the Disney Junior website on www.DisneyJunior.com.au (only accessible via PC or Mac) to watch some short episodes online. It is also a fantastic resource for FREE games, activities, colouring pages and even reward charts, just print and enjoy! School holidays are just around the corner so if your child is crazy about the lovely Sofia the First, the adventurous Jake and the Never Land Pirates and the always helpful Doc McStuffins (like our two big girls) this is definitely a website worth bookmarking.
Ever since miss 4 first saw Doc McStuffins on TV she has been madly in love with this friendly girl and her toy entourage. She has gathered quite the collection of Doc toys already and Lambie no.2 (oh the tears when she lost Lambie no.1!) is her favourite bed time buddy. Doc McStuffins may be small in age but she has big dreams and wants to become a doctor just like her mum, not a bad goal to have if you ask me! You’re never too young to learn so she is starting with her own home practice where she checks out, diagnoses and fixes any toy that needs a bit of special care.
As I would expect from Disney Doc McStuffins is innocent and age appropriate for young children so I can safely let my little ones watch the show and play the games. They enjoy the stories and at the same time they’re learning about simple but important things like caring for each other, problem solving, health, hygiene, doctor visits and friendship.
By the way, if you’re looking for some fun things to do on Talk Like A Pirate Day tomorrow (September 19) make sure you check out the Disney Junior website. There are lots of great Jake and the Never Land Pirates activities to download like colouring-in pages, a certificate, build-your-own puppet theatre, pirate hat, treasure chest and much more. Ahoy me hearties!
