Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “out of the box.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “out of the box.” Enjoy!
This prompt brought back a delightful memory! My normal tendency to wax philosophically has been interrupted for this public service announcement to grandmas and childcare givers.
During my childcare years, I became a children’s programing connoisseur. Around the year 2000, I had a favorite program that the kids and I watched. It was called Out of the Box and was produced by Disney. I haven’t thought of it in years!
It had storytelling, music, and art projects that were wonderful. One segment, in particular, came to mind because I couldn’t help but dance to it. Upon revisiting it… I still needed to dance! I posted it for y’all below.
The cast, content, and messages in this delightful show was excellent and I hope anyone who is lucky enough to be in the presence of young kids (and still has a happy, silly, heart) will look it up on YouTube. There are full episodes available. You won’t be disappointed.
I can’t imagine where children’s programming has gone lately. I’m confident its better days are behind us.
Happy Saturday friends! Let’s dance. ❤
