Creative Galaxy: An Inspiring New Show From Amazon Prime Instant Video

I love discovering new children's shows for Lincoln.  When I'm looking for something new for him, I am always in the market for something not only fun, but educational.  If he's going to be watching television, I would at least like to make sure that little brain is working hard!!

I am a HUGE fan of Amazon Prime.  I would say I probably do about 50% of my shopping there, and I think that's a lot! I LOVE the free two day shipping, and the convenience of shopping in my pajamas.  Recently I discovered a new show being featured on Amazon Prime Instant Video.  The catchy title alone caught my attention, Creative Galaxy. Needless to say I was eager to see what it was all about.

Here's some info about the show:

  • Creative Galaxy, produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises with Angela Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Super Why!) serving as Creator and Executive Producer, is a make-along, create-along, interactive art adventure series for preschoolers. Characters Arty and Epiphany travel around the galaxy to solve problems with art, inspiring creative thinking through crafts, music and dance. To give kids and parents the real-life tools they need to re-create Arty’s experience, a live-action piece at the end of each animated episode will take viewers through the craft project that Arty showcased in the galaxy.
  • This series is designed to support a child’s natural inclination to use their imaginations, make and create. Art make life joyful. Everywhere one goes art is evident. And the skills utilized and learned through making art are vast and useful. In every episode, our characters will use "fix it with art" to model the pervasiveness and importance of art as a resource for life for our home viewers.
  • The series helps kids at home feel as if they are making art along with Arty, through its interactive story format. As "helper artists", the kids at home will “create” alongside Arty, empowering them as “makers” in a media format.
  • The series helps make children and adults aware that people literally find themselves immersed in art most of the time: Parks use sculptures to add interest and to inform people; posters on walls give information and motivation; the clothes we wear are designed; music plays on the radio to keep your energy levels up; dance has meaning and tells stories. Whether we think of our world as art or not – it is!

I love everything about this show.  For starters, how about those bright colors and adorable fun characters?!

The show is super interactive, encouraging viewers to spark their creative imaginations! Lincoln loves Arty, the Creative Galaxy's leading character.  Arty is a bright green color, which of course is Lincoln's favorite color.  That immediately got his attention, as they had something in common.  It's so funny what grabs a child's attention!

We live in New England, and unfortunately, winter will soon be upon us.  I think this will be the perfect show to snuggle up with Lincoln on the couch, while his little brother takes a nap.  It's only 30 minutes long, perfect to hold his attention!  Then after the show, we could attempt a fun craft just like Arty!!

I am always looking for fun and creative new things to do with my kids.  Creative Galaxy will give us some special Mommy/Lincoln time!

If you have little ones, specifically preschool aged, I hope you'll check out this his new show available on Amazon Prime Instant Video!  I think it will be a hit for both the kids and you!
