If you are looking for a television show for your children to watch, you've got to check out this show called Are we there yet? Each show allows you to follow two siblings on there journey to Russia, Egypt, Sweden, Peru, and many other locations. They start the show by drawing pictures in their travel journal about the country they are visiting. They are then approached by a tour guide or someone versed in the area or special activity native to the region. The children are shown participating in activities from dance, sight seeing, pottery sculpting, other cultural art, and preparing food indicative of the region they are visiting. At the end of the show the children, again sit and draw what they've done that day in their travel journal. The ending scene is always fun with them participating in one more fun activity and finally them waving goodbye in the language of the country they've visited.
We look forward to watching this each week and the girls do not mind watching the repeats. Check out the video clip above - it will give you a taste of this fun show. Look for it on your city's channel listings.
