Over 35 of the Best Educational Videos for kids on YouTube

I am not a big fan of “screen time” for kids, however, there are certain educational videos on Youtube for kids I don’t mind Freddie watching. I have compiled a list of all of the educational shows we have come across either previously before Freddie was school aged, or the ones we use now he is in Key stage 2. We use some of these educational videos on Youtube in our homeschool day, Freddie’s favourite at the minute is Art for Kids. He has never been a fan of anything remotely arty so this is great.

With the right supervision the kids can learn so much from educational videos on YouTube. If you set up Youtube Kids which has lots of parental controls on it, your children will be much safer online.

If you are looking for more online educational resources please see my previous post on over 70 educational resources for kids.

    Great to have this list as a resource. I also think that just to google something we wouldn’t normally (like how to…whatever) is valuable too helping those kids who struggle with print or academics to learn in more visual ways.

      I have found with subjects such as art and history in particular for my son a visual aid is just brilliant. 🙂
