We have all been more than we might usually do in recent times. It can not only get incredibly boring for us adults, but it’s probably even worse for kids too. There are only so many board games and baking recipes you can do to keep them occupied, isn’t there?
Netflix has been the go-to option for , not only because it is at the touch of a button, but also because the streaming platform has a television show, documentary, or a movie for virtually everyone. When it comes to kids, though, the options aren’t always clear. Classic movies like Matilda and Hook go a long way but to keep their attention span, a short and sharp creation – usually in the form of a television show – is a favoured option for so many parents.
Finding the right shows on Netflix will not only keep your child entertained, but it will enable you to switch off and have a bit of “me time” in process also, be it through reading a book with a fine glass of wine, placing some of the , or catching up with a friend over the phone. Children certainly can’t watch Netflix all day, but it can help fill the void for the odd hour or two if you’re struggling.
So, without further ado, here is a look at some of the best shows for kids on Netflix right now.
We wouldn’t necessarily view Carmen Sandiego as a role model for any child – no thief is – but she uses her skills for good, at least. Full of interesting facts and stats from the world of geography and history, this fun and occasionally educational show is proving to be incredibly popular this year. Finn Wolfhard, from , is one of the voices featured in the series too. Overall, Carmen Sandiego is an enjoyable watch.
Last Kids on Earth
If your child is more into zombies and monsters, then Last Kids on Earth could be right up their street. Based on the popular book, the show centres around a 13-year-old boy who tries to adapt to life after a zombie apocalypse. He and his friends find solace in their treehouse before they battle monsters and try and make sense of what has happened.
Trolls: The Beat Goes On
Full of bright colours and cute designs, Trolls: The Beat Goes On follows Queen Poppy and the stick-in-the-mud Branch in what is a spin-off of the extremely popular Trolls series. With catchy music on offer as they carry out various adventures in each episode, this is a fun show to watch and a creation capable of keeping your child entertained.
Spirit Riding Free
Spirit Riding Free was created off the back of the Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, so big things were expected from it. Thankfully, it has delivered. Following the story of children who are desperate to make their way at the Tony Palomino Bluffs riding school, Spirit Riding Free is a beautiful story where a young girl forms an amazing friendship with a wild horse named Spirit.
Pokémon The Series: Sun and Moon
Kids love Pokemon it seems, so Pokémon The Series: Sun and Moon should be an instant hit. Perhaps your child has already seen Pokémon: Mewtew Strikes Back, so a further instalment is needed. That is exactly what Pokémon The Series: Sun and Moon provides, with three amusing seasons to get through, featuring all of the Pokemon favourites.
