It’s always bliss to feel those grains of popcorn in between your fingers while watching a movie together with the kids. The only part that might be tiring is the endless questioning- mummy why? Daddy who, what, where…? Well, it lasts for only 120 seconds.
With kids at home fulltime with their parents, no thanks to the novel coronavirus pandemic, there is the need to keep the little ones busy and entertainment takes a huge chunk of the time.
Thanks to creators, producers, artistes and singers, 2020 has a lot in store when it comes to children’s entertainment?
