This post is in partnership with Nick Jr.
I love spending time every single day with my boys, and after recently discovering Canticos on Nick Jr., we have the cutest reason to do so. We sit together on our sofa, open up the Nick Jr. channel on YouTube or their free app, pick a few Canticos videos we’d like to see, and snuggle together while listening to some sweet little songs in Spanish. What an adorable way to spend time together with your little ones! Put a little song in your hearts, together ♥
Many people look for ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, including honoring the different cultures and their history, learning the language, and cooking divine Latin recipes. With Nick Jr. Canticos, your children can celebrate as well in a way that engages them and introduces them to the language in a fun way. The more they hear Spanish spoken and sung, the easier it is for them to understand it and speak it, especially if they are trying to learn it at home or in school. The videos are clear, with subtitles, and some are streamed for continuous play. Children can learn easy vocabulary words, including basics such as numbers, the days of the week, and more (both in English and in Spanish). Because the videos are bilingual, they are appropriate for children who have Spanish or English as their primary language.
If Spanish is native to your family, your children will love hearing charming songs with cuddly characters in their own language ♥ It is wonderful for a child to hear their own language celebrated! They will hear classic nursery rhymes from all over the Spanish-speaking world paired with darling animal characters in these educational music videos.
Nick Jr. Canticos has 24 hour videos streamed so you can continuously play song after song, no worries about them losing their place or clicking over to another YouTube video. As a parent, I am careful what my children are looking at online, so I love the streaming videos! On the Nick Jr. app, this isn’t a concern at all as all videos are kid-friendly, but the streaming videos and individual videos are available there too.
Here is an example of a Nick Jr. Canticos video that the boys love, called ‘Little Chickies’:
Sing With Us! Vamos A Cantar
