Have Fun Indoors With Magformers and PBS KIDS!
Before the summer started I had all of these great outdoor activities planned and couldn’t wait to spend time outside! Once the summer heat set in, my children and I quickly changed our minds about being outdoors so much. Now, school is about to start and it seems the heat is only getting worse. We did have some fun in the sun and splashed in the pool a bit, but to be honest none of us wanted to be outside for too long. We found some great activities to do indoors like indoor playgrounds and museums, but we did spend a lot of time at home. I was a little more lenient with their screentime, especially if it wasn’t something that was rotting their brain. We also stayed busy with activities that would keep them learning and encouraging them to use their imaginations.
Magformers Amazing Police Set and PBS KIDS Playtime Pad are two of our favorite go-to activities! Magformers Amazing Police Set comes with over 50 pieces of magnetic construction allowing your child to create endless adventures. The pieces all magnetize together and comes with an idea booklet with step-by-step instructions. The PBS KIDS Playtime Pad is a kid-safe tablet where they can play games and watch LIVE TV with all of their favorite PBS shows and characters. Since PBS KIDS is a free broadcast, they can watch LIVE TV without any special connections. Control what your children can see with parental controls and it comes with a protective case.

PBS KIDS is one of my children’s favorite station to watch. I love PBS KIDS because all of their shows are educational and have a wonderful message, no matter what the show is. I feel safe while they play on the PBS KIDS Playtime Pad because I can control everything they have access to. There are so many games to play, and they can watch any show that’s available on PBS. I love that they can watch LIVE TV on the Playtime Pad, especially when it’s quiet time and my kids are winding down. I’m not usually a fan of Android, but this tablet is great!
The Magformers Police Set is such a wonderful way for my son to use his imagination. There are tons of different things he can build with the easy click magnets. Each geometric shape contains magnets that never reject, so you’ll always hear the MAGFORMERS® click. I love how much this set allows him to use his focus and concentrate on following the picture directions. He will sit for a few hours letting his imagination run wild! The pieces in this set are very sturdy and made to last.
