March is a very interesting month around our house, and not just because its my birthday month. There are a lot of conflicting feelings floating around for everyone in our house.
On the one hand, Spring is so close I can almost reach out and grab it. Almost. If you’ve read some of my recent posts, you can probably tell that I can’t wait to get started on all of the activities of Spring. The feeling of starting again begins to pop up. My girls and I go on our daily walks past our playground to see how much of the snow has melted and if we can get our double stroller across the grass to play on the structures. We look around our yard to see where the snow has melted and watch as it slowly inches away from our walkway.
Then, on the other hand, we are done. It has been a long winter, and we are ready to move on. For the days we feel like this, we try to keep busy. Our oldest is learning to read and write and count. We play games and we play with a lot of toys. We build forts and dance to music. We watch movies and play computer games, and talk about what we are looking forward to once all of the snow melts.
Disney Junior has been a large part of our winter activities and I consider myself extremely lucky to be a Disney Junior Mom. To make sure our little ones make it through the last of the winter they have us covered both online and on TV. Here is a wrap up of what is going on this month:
Online at DisneyJunior.ca
My daughter enjoys playing all of the games found on the Disney Junior website. There, she plays along with all of her favorite characters from Disney Junior. There are a lot of games to choose from and videos to watch. As a parent, I find most of the games to be educational and they complement our alphabet and letter teaching really well. The other games are just plain fun.
This month there are two new Jake and the Never Land Pirates games:
Disney Junior TV Channel
For kids looking for adventure this month, they can look to the Disney Junior channel. There are a few great shows coming up that are new and very exciting.
- Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Peter Pan will be making an appearance this month in a special titled “Peter Pan Returns”. Our family had the chance to preview the show before it came out and it was a lot of fun. Peter Pan returns to Never Land and he needs help from his crew. He has lost his shadow and it is up to Jake and his crew (which includes your little one) to overcome some problems, work together and get it back for him. This show will air on the Disney Junior channel in a 45-minute special on Friday, March 23 at 6:00pm EST.
- Tangled Ever After: There is a six-minute short film that picks up where the successful Disney movie, Tangled, left off. Rapunzel and Flynn are about to get married when trouble hits and the rings are possibly lost. Airing on the Disney Junior channel at 5:54pm on Friday March 23 (just before the Peter Pan special I just posted), the show features all of your favorite characters and a lot of adventure.
- Strawberry Shortcake: Your kids can take part in Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Big Week beginning the week of March 26th at 6pm ET. There is also a new episode titled ‘Where the Berry Breezes Blow’ on March 30th
Make sure to set your TV timers for these shows because I know your little ones will be asking to watch them again and again.
