Technology is our best friend during times of social distancing. It can help us stay connected with friends and family, learn about different topics and keep us entertained.
Podcasts are a fabulous way to keep kids engaged while at home. They can also be listened to while going for walks, or as an alternative to a bedtime story. Here are some of our favourite podcasts for kids to listen to during social distancing:
