We’ve heard plenty of different opinions on whether you should let your child have screen time, or not. As expecting parents, we admit that we still aren’t fond of the idea of letting Ruth have too much screen time given that we grew up in an era where the main source of entertainment for us was reading books or really, playing outside.
That being said, singing children’s songs / teaching Ruth various lessons through music was always a priority of ours. Back in our time, our parents or family members would often be the ones to introduce these songs to us but after having a look through the material available on YouTube, we were so impressed by the variety of YouTube channels and the amount of free content that we can rely on. During this circuit breaker period, we do understand that letting your child have some screen time is a great way to preoccupy your active child whilst imparting valuable educational (and life) lessons to them.
Here are 24 Best YouTube Music Channels To Entertain Your Toddler Whilst #StayingAtHome. Even after this circuit breaker period, we’re sure that these channels will continue to bring joy to your toddler every day. If there are any other channels that we should include on this list, do let us know as well and we’d be sure to update this guide.
