Summer break is officially here, and although these warmer months are fantastic for playing outdoors and soaking up the glorious sunshine, sometimes everyone (OK, we mean you, parents) could use a bit of a break from all that rambunctiousness. After running around all day, let kids cool off by watching these entertaining and even quasi-educational shows on Netflix. (Hey, just because school’s out doesn’t mean the learning has to end.)
Whether your child is interested in science fiction and outer space or is more into cute animated tales of friendship and adventure, Netflix’s summer lineup is sure to please viewers of all tastes and ages — thanks to shows like Lost in Space, True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Greenhouse Academy and The Magic School Bus Rides Again. Ahead, you’ll find 20 of our favorite picks currently available on the streaming platform.
Consider your after-play summer planning done. The best part? No sunscreen required.
