I recently stumbled onto a dvd that was specifically created for 3-6 year olds called Our First Journey, presented by On Butterfly Wings. Being the mom of a 3 1/2 year old I was interested. When I popped it into the dvd player for the first time my daughter was entranced. I swear she didn't even move a muscle during the whole 28 minutes. She then asked to watch it again...and again. Even my 14 month old got into it today when we popped it in again after preschool. She was dancing around shaking her little diaper bum.
Our First Journey takes your little ones on a journey of imagination as the children on the screen travel around and have adventures. Your little ones will even learn a little about our environment and fun ways they can take care of it.
The idea for this dvd came from the creator's own daughter who is naturally curious and flits from activity to activity just like a butterfly. Their hope with this dvd is to create an awareness in young minds of the positive differences they can make in our world.
Our First Journey retails for $15.95 and can be purchased at the On Butterfly Wings website, where you can also view a trailer of the film. $1 of each dvd purchase is donated to The Nature Conservancy. And a feature on the dvd that I can see coming in handy is the continuous play option. We live pretty far in the boonies so when we travel anywhere we take the portable dvd player. My daughter loves watching the same dvd over and over (she's crazy, I know). A continuous play option will save me from having to try to start the dvd over again when I can't even see the dvd player.
One lucky Red Sox Mommy reader will win a copy of Our First Journey and some packages of wildflower seeds that when grown attract butterflies. All you have to do is visit On Butterfly Wings and then come back here and tell me something they say about the environment or tell me something about the Nature Conservancy.
