One of my fondest memories of childhood is spending my Saturday mornings watching cartoons. I can’t recall ever being an early riser like my own children, but I am glad we share a love of staying in our pajamas until noon. If we don’t have early tee ball practice or karate, you can find us all snuggling on the couch chilling with some family TV time.
Now like every parent, I try to limit the time my kids spend doing their best impressions of couch potatoes. If they watch anything, it’s age appropriate and parent approved. In our houses, the TV is usually on some type of food/cooking show or Nick Jr. When we enjoy TV time as a family, I can feel confident that my children are actually learning while they watch their Nick Jr. favorites like Team Umizoomi.
Jed is a sponge lately for all their emphasis on math concepts, such as counting, sequences, shapes, patterns, etc. On his latest quarterly review from his preschool teacher, she confirmed this by noting his high skill level in math and science already. That makes this mom super proud!
Along with multiple educational shows, I am that mom that enjoys watching Spongebob Squarepants with my children. Yes, I giggle at the silliness right along with them in the madcap adventures un the underwater city of Bikini Bottom. I was shocked to discover Spongebob is also Nickelodeon’s longest-running cartoon. I guess I am not the only one watching.
Do your kids love Nickelodeon like mine do? If so, you need to know about this super hot deal! When you purchase any of the eligible products in the Nick Shop you can get aFREE Team Umizoomi backpack (no minimum purchase either). These backpacks are some serious street cred for the preschool gang, according to my four year old. Check out these fun Spongebob t-shirts available in the Nick Shop too. They make me snicker just looking at the silly faces. I can already hear my kids imitating Squidward’s crankiness, or Spongebob’s crazy laugh if they were to wear these shirts!
NickShop is THE place for parents to find character themed gifts for their children. NickShop features new and exclusive merchandise from children’s favorite Nickelodeon shows like TMNT, Winx Club, Dora the Explorer, Team Umizoomi, Bubble Guppies, The Fresh Beat Band, and SpongeBob SquarePants. Definitely worth a look to pre-order that birthday or holiday gift, and celebrate with the bonus free backpack! It’s nice when you find a deal to make your hard earned money go further.
