Wild Kratts introduces Baby Buddies app

PBS KIDS has announced the launch of the all-new WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies App, a science-focused app based on the popular animal-themed kids series, now available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. In WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies, kids join Kratt brothers Chris and Martin on a creature-sitting adventure in the African Savannah, as they help care for baby animals. Intended for children ages 3-8, the app gives kids the opportunity to learn about animal care and science.

In addition to feeding, washing, protecting and playing with the baby animals, the WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies app allows children to discover something new and exciting every time they play. The animals include a baby elephant, cheetah, zebra, aardvark, and crocodile.

WILD KRATTS airs weekdays at 5:30 p.m. on Rhode Island PBS. In each episode, creature adventurers Chris and Martin Kratt take children and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning Kratts’ Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats, showcasing key science concepts along the way. The series is a co-production of The Kratt Brothers Company and Emmy-winning 9 Story Entertainment.

The WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies App is now available for $1.99 from the App Store, Amazon and Google Play.

Winter Writing Wonderland Fun (PBS Parents)

From PBS Parents:
The winter solstice is right around the corner, marking both the shortest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere and the official beginning of winter. But with 70 degree temperatures here in Baltimore, it’s more popsicle eating weather than snowman making weather.
Which is why I’m seriously digging this wintry Adventure in Learning that gets kids writing in the “snow” regardless of the temperature outside.

Multi-Sensory Learning

This Montessori activity is rooted in the theory of multi-sensory learning. The general idea behind multi-sensory learning is that we make the strongest connections when we engage more than one of our senses while processing information and archiving it in our memory. In this activity, kids engage both their sense of touch (dragging their fingers through the salt) and sight (revealing color) to practice writing their letters.

What You’ll Need

  • Salt
  • A baking or pie pan with deep sides
  • Construction paper

Let It Snow!

Line a baking or pie pan with a sheet of construction paper.

Fill the container with a thin layer of salt. Make sure it’s enough to cover the paper.

Have your child practice writing letters in the salt. As they drag their fingers through the salt, they’ll reveal a letter.
Note: It’s best to have visual references nearby for emerging writers (eg., letters written on squares of paper or letter-shaped puzzle pieces). It’s easier for kids to write from a model than recall what letters look like from memory. Plus, it turns this into a more independent activity.

Give the pan a little shake or a light brush and kids have a blank slate to write again. Double the fun by adding small figures, arctic animals, or trees to create a truly wintry scene.
Enjoy the snow!
