There is a certain 3 year old in our family that really enjoys her educational television shows and movies. Bonus points if there is a talking animal in it. She can sometimes be found pressed up to the TV just to catch the best moments. But her TV time is limited to allow for book reading. I knew she would be the perfect little lady to try out a new show available on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
Creative Galaxy, produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises with Angela Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Super Why!) serving as Creator and Executive Producer, is a make-along, create-along, interactive art adventure series for preschoolers. Characters Arty and Epiphany travel around the galaxy to solve problems with art, inspiring creative thinking through crafts, music and dance.
The series helps make children and adults aware that people literally find themselves immersed in art most of the time: Parks use sculptures to add interest and to inform people; posters on walls give information and motivation; the clothes we wear are designed; music plays on the radio to keep your energy levels up; dance has meaning and tells stories. Whether we think of our world as art or not – it is!
When watching Creative Galaxy, this little lady was mesmerized and intrigued by the show. She asked questions and even adjusted her chair to get more comfortable to fully enjoy the show.
I personally loved how each episode was so wonderfully written so a 3 year old could understand it. She bopped along to all the creative songs for each time they went into the Creative Galaxy and I bopped along to every time they entered "Draw-opolis" and every other art planet. What else did I love?
- I learned how to MAKE bath crayons. Yes, really.
- Idea Box Might be my inner sorority girl of "Do-Nice Kit" coming out but I love this idea of a craft box for kids
- Epiphanie Character Not sure what exactly he is but is he not the cutest?!
If you have younger children and really want them to learn from their television, Creative Galaxy will be a great addition to your usual shows. This show inspires a child's imagination to make art from everyday items like a paper towel holder and oatmeal container and really make them excited for art!
