On YouTube there is very interesting content designed for our girls and boys. They go from fun songs to children’s stories or playful resources to reinforce what has been learned at school. You don’t have to ban them from watching videos! Rather, check if they are suitable for them and much better if they are also educational.
Here is a selection of 10 YouTube channels with free educational resources that your little ones will surely love.
1. Toy Cantando
A fun channel with catchy songs and very colorful videos. If you have a young child at home, he will be fascinated by Lola the Cow and other classics such as Josefina the Little Hen, The Colored Bird or Susanita has a Mouse. It also includes children’s stories such as The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty.
2. Luna Creciente
It also shares songs that your little ones will love, such as: I have a dairy cow, Old McDonald has a farm or Let’s play in the forest, but there is also a very educational list with The Monkey Sílabo to learn the main syllables in Spanish.
