Learning Science While Watching Netflix #StreamTeam


Although March Break is now over and our house is now back to normal with both the kids being back in school and the cold and flu leaving our house, it's time to start learning again.



One of the things I love to do with my kids is make science happen with random items in our house. With just a simple Google search you can find tons of experiments that are kid friendly. Luckily for us my daughter received a science kit a few years ago for her birthday and still has it. Included in the kit are lots of different tools to use, but there is also a pamphlet that shares over 75 different science experiments to try.

It's always fun to try different experiments, but it's also great to watch them as well. I absolutely love watching PBS experiment shows with my kids and now with having a subscription to Netflix, we can watch some of them any time we want. It's great to watch these shows with your kids, not only for them, but also for you as well. There are lots of things we tend to forget as adults and a lot of different experiments we didn't know about. It's always fun to watch these with the kiddos and if we can, try them out on our own.

Below are a few great science shows that are available on Netflix for your kiddos to watch. Why not make it a family night and watch a few shows together and try a few experiments together at home?

Stuffy Nose, Go Away! #BoogieWipes


This last month has been an absolute nightmare. I'm saying this because my entire household took turns being sick. There's five of us. Whether it was the flu, stuffy/runny nose or a cold, someone in my house had it. I don't know if it's because of the changes in the seasons, but I am sure glad that it's over.

Other then medicine, drinking lots of fluids and making sure we all got plenty of rest, Boogie Wipes helped us out a lot! I've talked about using Boogie Wipes on the blog before, and boy did we use them. I was sent a few containers of wipes and some of their new Boogie Mist as part of being a blogger of their Kandoo Ambassador Program. This is our second year being part of this program and I'm thrilled to work with Kandoo again as well as share with you all how you can use their products for your little ones.



If you have yet to try Boogie Wipes in your household, let me just say you're missing out. These wipes are made with Natural Saline that help dissolve mucus that's caused by the common cold. They're hypoallergenic so all kids can use them.



These wipes make it easier for kids to clean their nose when sick without leaving it red or sore because Boogie Wipes contains Vitamin E, Aloe and Chamomile on them to help moisturize the skin. They come in They come in Fresh Scent, Grape and Unscented and come in a pack of 30 count or in a 90 count canister. What I love about the 30 pack is that I can take them with me on the go or pack them in my kid's backpack so they can use them at school.

Along with the wipes, I also used Boogie Mist, for my kiddos. They weren't a fan of it at first because they thought it was going to be painful when I used it on them, but after the process was done and they felt the results of their nose being less stuffy and it not being painful, getting them to do it a second time was easy as pie. 


The Boogie Mist comes in Fresh Scent, Grape and Unscented as well. It's a sterile saline spray that helps thin out the thick mucus that’s making it hard for your child to breathe. This will then allow for your child to then blow their nose with the Boogie Wipes and breathe a lot better.

Now that we're all feeling better and at the end of March, I have to say I am definitely looking forward to Spring Cleaning to rid our house of any germs that may be laying around!

MY REVIEW
The Littlest Pet Shop is such a great show. Not only are all the pets adorable in the show, but I love all the bright beautiful colors, the story line and all the catchy songs in this show.

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: The Complete Series DVD Review



The massive spaceship Terra Venture represents mankind's greatest accomplishment. The giant spacecraft hosts multiple habitat domes with diverse environments ranging from a lake to a mountain range - even a dome with a sprawling city inside - as it takes thousands of human pioneers deep into space to settle a new world. Along the way they are stalked by dangerous aliens led by the insect-like villain Scorpius and his daughter Trakeena. Rising to protect the colony ship and its many inhabitants, a team of Power Rangers from different walks of life unites to become the Galaxy Rangers.
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: The Complete Series, a 5-DVD box set that contains all 45 episodes of the iconic show’s seventh season.
MY REVIEW
My daughter is a HUGE fan of Power Rangers. When I say huge fan, I mean, she looks up youtube made videos of her favorite Power Ranger couples and watches them constantly. It's pretty impressive how far Power Rangers has come since I was a kid. There has been so many different ones and she has watched them all, except for Lost Galaxy. So when we had a chance to review the complete series of Lost Galaxy, I knew I had to get it. She absolutely loved the series. It didn't take her long to watch at all either. The entire series has over 15 hours and she watched every bit of it. She also was home from March Break and was sick, so that had a lot to do with her finishing it so fast, but she loved watching every bit of it. She loved the way the Power Rangers came together to become the Galaxy Rangers.

If you are a part of the love for the Power Rangers, this is an absolute must have in your collection. It's filled with action and new villains that the rangers have to face. The Lost Galaxy is now out on DVD. For more info on The Lost Galaxy and other Power Rangers DVD's be sure to head over to www.ShoutFactory.com
