Immy has been a big fan of DirtGirlWorld for almost two years (I actually posted about it here eighteen months ago). This award winning television show has been one that I have been happy for her to watch as I can see that as well as being entertaining and age appropriate, the program communicates a positive environmental message and the means to encouraging children to get outdoors and engage with nature.
Which has to be a good thing, right 🙂 From windy days perfect for kite flying to searching for rainbows, each episode takes children on an adventure with the animated characters DirtGirl, Scrap Boy, Hayman, Grubby and Ken (and the rocking roosters dancing the Chicken Jam deserve their own special mention!), with the aim of inspiring a generation of planet loving preschoolers. And what child wouldn’t want to play in a backyard just like DirtGirl’s!
Each episode also includes footage of real children (the Green Thumbs) engaged in a nature based project. Packaged together with a funky soundtrack (that is easy to listen to – even for parents!), it is no wonder DirtGirlWorld is a hit with children aged 2-7 years from all around the world (incidentally, the second CD from the series, Dig It, has been nominated for Best Children’s Album at the upcoming ARIA awards).
If you want to encourage your little people to get outdoors and get grubby, I have two DirtGirlWorld viewing and listening packs to giveaway. Open to Australian readers, each pack contains 1x DirtGirlWorld DVD – Summer, 1x DirtGirlWorld DVD – Winter, 1x DirtGirlWorld CD – Get Grubby! and 1x DirtGirlWorld CD – Dig It!
What a great addition to a Christmas stocking hanging in your home!
