I am a Podcast addict, not just for my own listening pleasure but I also love my kids listening to podcasts I have had a shortlist of my favourite Podcasts for kids for quite some time, but just recently I crowdsourced (ie I asked the amazing followers I have on Facebook and Instagram what their favourite Podcasts for kids were and I compiled the list below!
We came up with 21 Podcasts that cover all the genres.
How do my kids listen to Podcasts?
We typically use my phone for podcasts, I have an iPhone so I have subscribed to a number of the kid-friendly podcasts on the Apple podcast app and on the Spotify app. We tend to listen to them either in the car or via a blue tooth speaker at home.
When do my kids listen to Podcasts?
Long car trips
Quiet times at home
When my youngest bub was a newborn and the bedtime routine was a little tricky I would pop on a podcast for the kids to listen to while I settled bub and then came to finish off with some book reading before they went to bed
In the morning if they are up, but I'm not quite ready to start the day, they listen to them and hopefully stay quiet. lol
