I always told myself that I didn’t want to be the parent that just throws on the TV to get stuff done, but it happens…more often than I want to admit. I’m trying to put away the dishes or writing out a grocery list. Or maybe I just want 10 minutes on social media. No matter the reason, the TV comes on.

But finding the perfect thing for kids to watch can be its own struggle. I want something educational and appropriate for my 2-year-old daughter to watch. In our house, cartoons are our JAM—but sometimes you grow tired of Disney cartoons or throwing on another Netflix show. So, I started introducing her to clean Christian cartoons that she really enjoys. 

And guess what—you can stream good Christian cartoons for toddlers, preschoolers, kids and pre-teens!
