Best Christian TV Shows For Your Kids
Let me be 100% real with you.
My 4 year old watches TV. And has her whole life.
I do think there’s some good in little kids watching the fun bright colors in shows, learning basic things like numbers, shapes, colors, how to potty (thanks Little Baby Bums), etc.
But God says it pretty clearly here in His Word…
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness! If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! “
It matters what our kids hear, read, and watch!
Heck, it matters what WE as adults watch!
Something I’ve learned over the years is how much kids take in! While I do love hearing her sing all the cute little Daniel Tiger songs – in very relevant situations I may add – it showed me that she is GRABBING onto this stuff.
I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t just helping her learn about God’s Word on paper, but in what we watch too!
I needed to make sure her mind was being filled with godly, biblically sound TV shows since I knew screentime wouldn’t be completely cut out in our home.
So what did I do? Take a look…
TV Shows And Kids Behavior
There is also something to be said about the correlation between “nonsense TV” and kids’ behavior. In fact, I did a little experiment.
I noticed the more screentime we had (whatever screen time shows) including TV and kindle, the worse her attitude got. She was just being very whiny, demanding, and just not herself.
Yes she is 4, so this happens sometimes. I get it!
But I wanted to try something… first, we cut out ALL shows we were watching and only watched Christian TV shows.
I noticed about a 50-70% improvement in her behavior!
Wow, I thought, let’s take this a step further….
So we cut out ALL TV and screen time for a couple of days. And you know what?
She played more. She read more books (with me). And told more stories. Lo and behold, she was more kind and patient. It was like a complete 180!!!
So while I realized it wasn’t 100% realistic to completely cut out TV (I’m all for good screen time) I knew that we needed to waaaaaaaay cut down on WHAT she was watching.
Alrighty, enough talk, and let’s get to the GOOD stuff you came here for – here are 19 of the BEST Christian TV shows for kids and where you can find them!
1. What’s In The Bible With Buck Denver
This is probably one of the TOP Christian TV shows for kids! It was created by Phil Vischer and digs into the Bible in a fun and interactive way. Between the many characters and silly songs, it’s sure to be one your kids will love!
2. Veggie Tales
Veggie Tales is another classic by Phil Vischer! It has been around a long time and for good reason. It brings the Bible to life with stories kids can relate to with silly song breaks too (my favorite part). Plus, they always encourage kids in how much God loves them! Definitely a favorite!
This show is pretty unlike any of the others! Superbook is so interactive and actually puts the characters INSIDE the Bible stories, bringing your kids along for the ride!
Bibleman gives a LITERAL take on using God’s Word as a “weapon” against evil! Each episode features different situations where they reiterate important scriptures for kids to fight off the bad things, and has that whole “superhero” thing down that kids will love.
Theo is a great show for teaching children God’s Word! These are great to teach different lessons such as being kind to our neighbors, loving one another, the Gospel, and tons more! The little mice are very entertaining and bring a lot of humor as well!
6. 321 Penguins
If you don’t know anything about me know this… I LOVE PENGUINS. Okay, there I said it haha. 321 Penguins is a fun ( and goofy) space-themed show that teaches kids great character lessons.
Auto B Good is such a fun and cute show! It is especially great for little kids to get them started in learning simple (yet important) life lessons from the Bible. Plus, kids LOVE talking cars. 😉
8. Friends And Heroes
Another well known kid’s Christian TV show, Friends And Heroes helps the Bible come alive! It teaches tons of stories from the Old and New Testament in fun, new ways.
9. Gigi: God’s Little Princess
Calling all mommas of little girls! Gigi: God’s Little Princess is such a great Christian TV show for girls! It really reiterates the fact that we are daughters of the King, making us “princesses.” It is so sweet and there are tons of books and accessories that go with it! 🙂
10. Hermie & Friends
Hermie & Friends is a fun-loving show that teaches kids valuable life lessons! Through the use of silly cartoon bugs, kids learn how special they are in their own unique way!
11. Micah’s Super Vlog
Micah’s Super Vlog is a series of short videos that have a modern take on learning valuable life lessons! This is great for kids who are in school as it focuses on a lot of peer pressure type situations!
Where to watch: Go Minno
Owlegories is definitely a favorite of ours (huge book nerd here 😀 ). It’s set up as a classroom and they learn different Bible lessons, about faith and God through nature. Definitely, a must watch!
13. Making Stuff
This show was soooo designed with kids in mind! Kids love to make things and this show is ALL about how to make things, guided by two cartoon robots. Such a fun, wholesome show and only 5 minute episodes – great to keep their attention!
Where to watch: Go Minno
14. The Amazing Bible Series
You can watch this classic and all its episodes free on Amazon Prime! It is super entertaining and teaches kids about the Bible!
15. Bible Stories For Kids
So this one is really interesting! It is a collection of animated Bible stories! It’s almost like a “book format” but you can watch it. This is great to use during Family Bible time or to help your kids learn the Bible. 🙂
Where to watch: Amazon Prime
16. Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible: The Miracles of Jesus
This classic kids show really digs into PEOPLE in the Bible. Jesus and his life, the apostles, Joseph, just to name a few! A great option to help your kids understand more of the Bible.
17. Adventures in Odyssey
These books and now shows are super fun for kids and filled with biblical learning adventures! You can also pair one of these episodes with the Adventure Bible for kids and really tie it all together!
18. Sing-Along-Songs for Kids: Bible Songs
This fun Bible sing-along show has lyrics to favorite kids’ Bible songs, and animations to go with it! A great way to entertain your kids and teach them some fun Bible songs. 🙂
Where to watch: Amazon Prime
19. Church At Home
Okay, I’ve got to say… this is our FAVORITE show to watch and it’s exclusively on Go Minno! It is like a worship service for kids – praise music, little short lessons, one big lesson, and questions, Bible verses, and prayers! LOVE this one!!!
