What comes to your mind when I say adventure? Travel to a foreign country? or Space? or a dangerous place? If you look up the word Adventure, the first definition on dictionary.com is “an exciting or very unusual experience”. So for kids it could be anything, a trip to a new grocery store, or a park, a vacation to a city they’ve never been; or doing something they’ve never done before… Anything that involves exploring an uncharted territory is an adventure, including watching a TV show or movie and meeting new characters or visiting a fantastical world together. Today we share some adventure movies and TV shows for kids.
