Adorable puppets stage their own Musical under the watchful eye Julie Andrews in this original Kids series from the  Jim Henson Company.

Anytime I can get my kids to sit down and watch television with me is time I love spending with them. It’s time we share our thoughts on many things and the topics that come up in Julie’s Greenroom have been great.  One of the episodes talked about singing and how to train your voice and my daughters in choir and she’s heard many of the terms before and was able to elaborate on what was being discussed.  It was great to watch my oldest and youngest actually have something to talk about.

After the show we sat at the table to make puppets. We’ll I did a lot of the making but when it came time for puppet show sharing we all joined in the fun. We were sent a kit with socks, felt and glue and we provided imagination to create our characters.

You never realize how funny your kids can be until they put a sock puppet on their hands and start having conversations.  My son just laughed so hard and tried to tell jokes in “voices” that just cracked us up. He’s really quite the character but we all know that.

Making hand puppets is pretty easy and I remember doing this with my grandma and my mom when I was a kid.  I remember hunting for socks that were different colors and then looking for things that we could glue on to create characters.  Love bring old school crafts back to the table and creating fun with my kids.

At one point I seriously think I was having more fun than them.

The greatest thing about watching Netflix shows together is finding the time to sit and talk with the kids. Sundays especially are a great night for family night. We love all the family shows that Netflix has to offer and  it keeps us together in the living room without all the influences of electronics and social networking that flood our daily lives.  Netflix has great family shows that I know are safe to watch with my kids and with the vast library of Disney movies you know there’s always something something to watch.
