TV Shows to Stream on Netflix this Summer

While my children are taking a break this summer and not attending summer school, I still want to inspire their learning throughout the summer months. We still school part-part-time three days a week for an hour or so. We do loads of summer reading programs and naturally I look for anything that helps me and my kids keep connecting.

My kids love to listen to any story about myself when I was a child. They will ask me to tell them the same story over and over. It cracks me up. It connects our childhoods; they have something in common with me. There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with my kids over something I loved when I was young.

We also love to connect over all the old-school classics like Scooby-Doo and Mickey Mouse. Cartoons such as the new Netflix original series Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse are giving us loads to bond over. These new reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of the most favorite characters.

I was away at summer camp with my girls last week and was able to stream episodes at night while everyone was asleep . . . but shh, because I made the girls have a screen free week! I am also streaming Between . . . have you seen this yet? LOVE it! Another new series that began this month is Sense8. If you haven't' noticed, my husband and I really enjoy Sci-Fi!!
