We are approaching that point in the summer when school feels like a fever dream. It’s been so long since kids were in class and yet in many parts of the country we are still over a month away from getting back into the routine of the school year. In the meantime, parents may be running low on ideas and need some fresh options for helping kids pass the time. 

The good news is that all screen time is not created equal. We’re proud of the lineup we have at Minno. Kids are entertained and edified and parents can relax their shoulders a bit when Minno is on the screen. The Minno team goes through a 50-point faith-based curation checklist to guarantee every frame, word, and message on Minno shows are faith-aligned and of high entertainment value. Give these twelve shows a try to help your family thrive through the summer finish line.
