Road Trip Entertainment: Podcasts for Children

Summer road trips are quickly approaching and I’m desperately searching for entertainment for the kids, but not of the DVD variety.. the whole time anyway.  Listening to podcasts is a great way to entertain the kids without having to play a movie, car bingo, or I spy for the millionth time.  What I love about audio podcasts is that just like when reading a book, they require a bit of imagination.   After the podcast is over I’ll ask them what they think the characters look like, what they are wearing, how old they are.. etc.. That gets them engaged in conversation and usually makes for some pretty good laughs.

The links below will open the podcast page in iTunes.
