As the kids are getting older, their interests are changing. We still have Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol playing on TV with a four-year-old in the house, but there are many different shows my older kids enjoy when their little sister isn't occupying the living room screen with her preschooler fun.
The older two kids tend to lean toward shows geared for their ages and beyond, with themes and jokes we can finally laugh at together. They're bigger than I thought!
Sadly, there comes a day in a child's life when all good preschooler cartoons must come to an end. Although I wouldn't go as far as letting the kids watch mature shows like The Walking Dead or the OA, I am happy Netflix has such a wide variety of programming for all ages and stages.
This month, Netflix brings even more great programming for all ages, here is a list of what you can find for your bigger (but not too big) kids!
