3 Awesome Science DVDs for Kids

May 20, 2014 6 Comments »

My girls both love Science and learning about the world and nature, {even if they’re not fond of bugs.} In fact, we just had a great trip to Discovery Place Charlotte for Miss A’s birthday where we were learning about jellyfish, gases, and creating some cool recycled works of art.

While we will be visiting lots of museums and parks this Summer, I know there will be some moments {especially with packing for the new house and the move itself} where we’ll need some downtime. I found 3 great DVDs from NCircle that are both fun, and educational. {My favorite combination.}


3 Awesome Science DVDs for Kids MommyB


The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!: Space is the Place


Join the Cat in the Hat on a trip into space, and learn why the cosmos is such a cool place! In this new DVD, the Cat and his friends visit each of the planets, the sun and the stars. Young viewers can learn why day turns to night thanks to our friend, the sun.

Sid the Science Kid: What is a Rainbow?


After a rainstorm, the sun comes out and Sid spots a big rainbow in the sky. He races inside to tell his parents, but by the time he brings them outside to see it, the rainbow is gone. Sid and his friends investigate rainbows at school where they discover that rainbows can only form when light passes through water droplets.

Your kiddos will learn the answers to the questions: Where does light come from? How are shadows made? How are rainbows created? What causes darkness?

Octonauts: To the Gup-X!

This DVD includes the following exciting adventures: Captain Barnacles leads a mission to rescue Dashi, who is trapped inside a giant whale shark; Kwazii takes to the skies to retrieve a precious book from a school of flying fish; Peso tries to bandage a Great White Shark without becoming his lunch – and much more! Plus, in a special extra feature, Tweak & Tunip tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Gup-X!

Both my girls {ages 4 and 7} really enjoy these DVDs and have learned so much about space, rainbows/light, and sea life. These are movies that we can watch over and over again and not have to worry about questionable content or mindless viewing.

    Oh my little science nerd son would love these! He’s 10 now and has moved on to finding his nerd content via Youtube most of the time… but THIS is the type of stuff that totally got him hooked! 🙂

    My kids both love Cat in the Hat and Sid the Science Kid. Neither have really got into the Octonauts yet, but I’m sure I can find clips on Youtube and get them hooked! LOL

    All three of these would be favorites in my house. Especially the Octonauts. My boys LOVE them. My oldest son is carrying around Captain as I type. Ha! Fun educational DVDs are my favorite.

    We’ll probably be picking up all three of these since my kids love all of these cartoons and watch on a somewhat daily basis already. I love it when learning and entertaining collide!

    My 6 YO loves Sid the Science Kid and the Octonauts! I’ll have to check and see if these are available on Amazon Prime.
