For me, screen time for my kids is a guilty pleasure…for me. In a perfect world, I would be on task all of the time–the happy smiling mom with a list of fun projects for us all to do together. And, a lot of the time, I am that mom. Sometimes, however, even Super Mom (which I do not purport to be) needs a break.
The trick is to balance the need for a few moments of peace and quiet (which screen time almost always provides) with really good content. I was excited to view a few episodes of Creative Galaxy with my kids, because I really think that this series provides both. This new series, created and produced by Angela Santomero (of Blue’s Clues and Super Why fame) follows Arty, a creative preschool alien, as he, together with his family and his shape shifting pet, Epiphany, travels through a universe of Art-related planets and craftily fix problems in his life with art.
