When you’ve got a sick kid at home, prepping yourself with an arsenal of easy activities is as important as disinfecting everything she may have touched in the last 48 hours. To help you out, we’ve got a list of quality entertainment perfect for an afternoon or two of couch crashing. Flip through the slideshow below to see our top picks for your favorite little people to watch while they’re on the mend.
The Kicks (Amazon Prime Video)
Inspired by the book series of the same name (written by real-life soccer star Alex Morgan), this new show from Amazon Prime follows the story of tween Devin Burke. When she moves with her family to California and has to join a new soccer team, she’ll face new challenges, learn new lessons, and have lots of fun. Parents will like that Devin has a close connection with her family; kids will get a “kick” out of watching her hash it out with the other kids on the team, rising up to be a leader and a good friend—all at the same time. Awarded the “Great for Families” badge by Common Sense Media, the entire first season is available for viewing now.
Ages: 6 & up.
