It’s Sunday. Term starts again tomorrow. Everyone’s miserable because half-term’s almost over. But to stop the back-to-school blues setting in, here are a few video on-demand things you can do to enjoy the few hours of holiday you have left.
1. Stream a kids’ show on Amazon Prime
When it comes to kids TV shows, Amazon Prime has you covered. From Rugrats and Blue’s Clues to Round the Twist and Thundercats, the selection is as exciting for nostalgic adults as it for children.
2. Try Turbo F.A.S.T.
If your children enjoyed Turbo when it was on in cinemas, Turbo F.A.S.T. continues the adventures of the racing snails for the small screen. Netflix UK’s first original series for younger viewers, we wrote here about why DreamWorks’ animation is worth a try.
3. Spot the Difference after watching Justin and the Knights of Valour
If you’re into scribbling as well as streaming, this set of activity packs for Justin and the Knights of Valour should provide some entertainment for half an hour – from joining the dots to spotting the difference, it’s a good way to remind kids that paper and pens exist. You know, before they’re replaced by tablets and the world is ruled by robots.

4. Colour in Ryan Gosling
