The Kids Listen Activity Podcast is a collaborative effort from members of Kids Listen. While kids across the globe are unexpectedly home from school we’ll be packaging and releasing daily episodes. Each day will be a favorite episode of a new Kids Listen Show, including an activity suggestion to help parents and kids engage more deeply and get the most out of these days. Kids Podcasts can help with learning and fun (which should go hand in hand).
