Sharing is caring!

As an adult, I feel anxious about the current state our country is in. Couple that with being a parent and the desire to keep our children protected yet informed and the load is getting HEAVY. We already have to figure out how to school at home ,keep the kids busy yet safe, and figure out how to save on these new grocery bills. It is no secret that we get plenty of screen time around here so when I discovered that Nickelodeon was airing #KIDSTOGETHER: The Nickelodeon Town Hall to educate kids on COVID-19 I couldn’t have been more grateful.

From the press release:

Nickelodeon will present #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall, an exclusive hour-long special offering a kid’s-eye view of life today amid COVID-19, on Monday, March 30, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).  Hosted by actress Kristen Bell (The Good Place, Frozen, Veronica Mars) and featuring a performance by Alicia Keys, the special will directly address kids’ questions and concerns, include tips and insights from medical experts on ways to be healthy, and give first-person accounts from kids and families around the country who are social distancing and making changes to their everyday lives and relationships.

#KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons, and will be available on Nick On Demand, Nickelodeon YouTube, the Nick App and the Nick Pluto TV channel following the premiere. The special will also appear on Nickelodeon’s international networks.

#KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall is part of Nickelodeon’s overall global, multiplatform prosocial initiative #KidsTogether, which launched on March 18, and uses Nick’s most popular characters and talent to engage with kids and families on tips for staying healthy and also ideas for activities to do together while in the home. Featuring SpongeBob SquarePants, Blue’s Clues & You!, Henry Danger, Bubble GuppiesThe Casagrandes, and more, #KidsTogether is intended to serve as an additional resource for parents while providing kid-appropriate, kid-directed information through original short-form videos, interstitials, downloadable activities and social content, with elements aggregated for easy access on a central online destination,  A brief discussion guide for #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall will also be available on following the premiere of the special.

I am very interested in seeing how Nickelodeon tackles the subject of Coronavirus for their little viewers. Sometimes as parents we can’t find the words to explain it in a way our kids will absorb so I am glad Nick is swooping in to help save the day.
