Blaze and the Monster Machines is a new preschool TV series coming to Nick Jr this week. We’re looking forward to watching it premiere on Friday, and taking part in a Twitter party at the same time to celebrate it’s release.
Blaze and the Monster Machines has a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) which is great to see. Even young children can start picking up lots of basic STEM concepts by watching shows like this and taking part in simple activities at home. I love the concept of this, and my boys have a real interest in science and technology so I’m sure this new show will be a hit with them.
We’ll be joining other blogging families to host the #NickJrBlaze Twitter party this Friday 6th March from 3.45-5.45pm for the UK premiere of Blaze and the Monster Machines on Nick Jr.
We’ve been trying out the new range of Blaze and the Monster Machines toys from Fisher Price, and one of the activities we used them with is this simple maths activity that focuses on measuring the distances the vehicles have travelled.
