“I learned it” on Netflix

Summer is in full swing and we are raring to go! Go outside and explore after being kept inside of classrooms and from cold temperatures during the winter time. Then the dreaded “rainy days” hit and we are once again stuck indoors. What to do? I think every parent hears “I’m bored” to the point of a metal breakdown. Have no fear parents, I have compiled a list of wonderful shows on Netflix to keep your kids entertained yet learning something! From the history of Cleopatra to learning what baking powder vs. baking soda can do to cupcakes, you will be surprised they ‘Learned It On Netflix!

    Great list. I am a big fan of shows that transport us to faraway places or that allow us to see beyond what our eyes can see.

    I love museums and I love history so the 'Secret of the Sphynx' would be something I would be interested in watching.
