Legendary Circus Performers of All Time

circus is in town | Tiger and Tim

The circus is in town! Here are some of the most legendary circus performers who amazed the world with their daring stunts.

circus-themed episode | Tiger and Tim

Hey, cool cats! Have you seen our special circus-themed episode? It’s one of my favourite Tiger and Tim learning videos for kids! (Oh, well… all of them are my faves!). Of course, you have to see my flying trapeze performance!

I know I was brilliant in my high-flying stunt on my first try, nonetheless! (Watch the video with your kids now!) But there are soooo many more legendary circus performers that have wowed thousands of people during their run. These circus acts perform in shows for kids and adults, and they never fail to garner applause from their audience. Because of their talent, these circus performers have etched their names in circus history.

Let’s meet them!

  1. Dan Rice (“The King of American Clowns”)

Dan Rice (“The King of American Clowns”) | Tiger and Tim

In our Circus Show episode, Tim dressed as a clown. But he is no match to Dan Rice, also known as The King of American Clowns”!

Dan Rice | Tiger and Tim

Dan Rice first became popular in the 1840s with this clown act that combined physical comedy, jokes, and witty antics. He even performed musical numbers along with feats of strength and other more traditional circus stunts! Dan Rice soon became so popular that he later put up his own travelling circus. He even once bid for the US presidential seat!

  1. Jules Leotard (“The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze”)

Jules Leotard | Tiger and Tim

My flying trapeze act with Tilly the Tortoise was brilliant, but Jules Leotard can do it a million times better! Leotard, a French acrobat performer, first learned how to perform the high-flying stunt over a swimming pool. He taught himself the techniques needed to complete the act – there were no learning videos for kids or adults during that time to teach him! When he finally mastered his talent, his debut performance in 1859 at the Cirque Napoleon in Paris was met with thunderous applause. He was so famous that he became the namesake for the “leotard”, the snug one-piece suit that he wore during performances. Now that’s a fantastic legacy to leave!

  1. Zazel (“The Human Cannonball”)

Zazel | Tiger and Tim

Zazel, or Rosa Richter in real life, was a circus superstar known for hurling herself out of a giant cannon and into a safety net! Her daredevil act which she first performed in 1877 in various circus shows for kids and adults alike, made her famous all over the United States, primarily after she toured with circus impresario P.T. Barnum.

  1. Charles Blondin (“The Great Blondin”)

Charles Blondin | Tiger and Tim

Walking on a tightrope is no easy feat – but for Charles Blondin, it’s just a walk in the park!

Walking on a tightrope | Tiger and Tim

Blondin, a trained acrobat and athlete, became famous for his death-defying tightrope act. His most popular stunt involved walking on a rope suspended 1,300 feet above the Niagara Falls, between the Canadian and American sides. But he did not just do it once; he did this stunt over and over again. Each performance included a different twist, including carrying his manager on his shoulders, pushing a wheelbarrow, and even carrying a stove and making an omelette in the middle of the rope! How I wish there were videos of Blondin doing one of his tightrope walk routines so kids can see this daring and quirky act!

  1. Octavie LaTour aka “Mauricia De Tiers”

Octavie LaTour aka “Mauricia De Tiers” | Tiger and Tim

Have you ever seen a flying car? Well, I haven’t. But Octavie LaTour can make one fly!

Octavie is a lady stunt driver who became famous in the 1900s for her Dip of Death act, wherein she would drive a small car fast over a tall ramp. She then would turn the car upside down and do a reverse somersault in the air, 20 feet above, to be exact! Now whoever said that ladies are not good drivers do not know Octavie!

There are more fantastic circus performers throughout the years, especially during the glory days of the circus, and their names are immortalised in the history of entertainment.

That’s it, cool cats! Catch our Circus Show episode and all our other learning videos for kids on our YouTube channel and our different streaming partners. Talk to you again soon!

Summer 2021: Road Trip Essentials for the Family

family road trip | Tiger and Tim

Warm days are meant for spending time with the family outdoors! So here are your must-haves for the next great family road trip.

tourism and travelling picking up once again | Tiger and Tim

Ahh… summer! What better way to spend these warm days ahead than exploring and going on a family adventure? With tourism and travelling picking up once again, we all want to take a break and have fun under the sun!

Watching funny videos for kids or any kids shows playing on the telly all day can get a little boring, especially for young children. However, a road trip can be a great learning opportunity for kids that can be just as fun and entertaining as watching videos on YouTube!

However, some parents and grown-ups are still a little bit wary of going out with their Tiger Cubs. So here are road trip essentials that you must have to ensure everyone’s safety and keep the fun coming!


  1. Safety Kit

Safety Kit | Tiger and Tim

With the virus still a threat, it is vital to keep you and your family safe during your road trip. Pack along with you some COVID safety essentials such as face masks, hand sanitisers, tissue paper or wet wipes, and disposable gloves. Don’t forget to pack trash bags, as well, to keep things neat during your trip.

Some parents suggest bringing other cleaning items such as disinfectant spray, laundry detergent, or bleach when staying in hotels or vacation home rentals just to be on the safe side.

  1. Healthy snacks

Healthy snacks | Tiger and Tim

While several adults have been vaccinated, most young kids are not, making kids more at risk of getting sick. This is why eating healthy snacks to boost their immune systems is a must! Bring plenty of fruit snacks that are loaded with vitamins and minerals that keep kids strong and healthy. I love me some healthy snacks!

(Watch how I cooked a healthy omelette ala-Tiger in this funny video for kids!)

Having enough supplies of food and drinks will also save you trips to the supermarket or convenience stores along the way.

  1. Emergency medicine kit

Emergency medicine kit | Tiger and Tim

Just as with any road trip, bringing an emergency medical kit is also a must. You’ll never know when Tiger Cubs get into minor accidents. Don’t let minor cuts or scratches ruin the trip! Bring along with your medicines and first aid relief items to ensure that everyone is a-okay and fit for the great outdoors!

  1. Road trip plan

Road trip plan | Tiger and Tim

A wise tiger once said… All great road trips start with a great plan! (That wise tiger is me, hehe)

Given that our world is a little different nowadays, a little more planning is necessary to help make your family adventures more epic! Some of the things you would need to consider are places where you would sleep (hotels, rentals, or campsites?). You would also need to consider the crowd – too many people would make it more challenging to practice social distancing. Lastly, what types of activities everyone would enjoy in a particular place.

To make the trip extra special for them, you may have your kids plan with you – watch YouTube videos of travel vlogs to get a good idea about your itinerary.

  1. Toys, books, and other entertainment

 Toys, books, and other entertainment | Tiger and Tim

Looking at the scenery can get a little boring after a few hours! So keep the Tiger Cubs busy by bringing along small toys, art materials, books, and even board games. You can also let them pass the time by making them watch Tiger and Tim videos on YouTube Kids! Now that’s a great idea, don’t you think?

Road trips will always be an enjoyable and memorable way for families to spend during the summer months. Not only is it a fantastic way for children to learn new things, but it is also a unique way for everyone in the family to bond. Don’t forget to make fun videos and photos for kids to look back to for the years to come!

Stay safe, cool cats!

10 Fun Facts About Ancient Greece for Kids

Is it all Greek to you? Well then, learn many fascinating facts about Ancient Greece in our latest video in collaboration with Twinkl!

fascinating facts about Ancient Greece | Tiger and Tim

Hi there, cool cats! Have you seen our latest video that Tim and I made with Twinkl? (Watch it with the kids on Twinkl’s YouTube channel now!). It’s a super cool music video about Ancient Greece and what makes it sooo fascinating!

Twink | Tiger and Tim

The video is part of our ongoing collaboration with Twinkl, a leading educational resource website. Look out for more Tiger and Tim funny and educational videos for kids on Twinkl TV coming out soon!

I had a lot of fun learning about this great ancient civilisation in this video, and I am sure many kids out there would find them interesting, too! So here are some fun facts about Ancient Greece to help children learn more about it.

  1. Strange Food

Strange Food | Tiger and Tim

Ancient Greeks are a superstitious bunch. Because of their beliefs, they wouldn’t even eat some types of food, thinking it might bring them bad luck. One example is beans, because they believe that these legumes contain the souls of the dead! Yikes!

  1. Ancient Olympics

Ancient Olympus | Tiger and Tim

In our fun educational music video for kids, we mentioned that the Olympics originated in Greece, so here are some more fascinating facts about the ancient Olympics (right on time for this year’s 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, too!)

The first Olympic Games were held in the city of Olympia in 776 BC (hence, the name). Among all the sporting events held in the ancient Olympics, the toughest one has to be wrestling, as there are no rules in the game and athletes had to compete in the buff! Oh no!

Olympic Games | Tiger and Tim

Also, much like our modern Olympics, winners in the Olympic Games are celebrated when they go back home. Hooray!

  1. Ruled by Gods

Ruled by Gods | Tiger and Tim

Since the ancient Greeks have no way to explain natural phenomena around them (like the rain, sunrise, and sunset!), they look up to their gods and goddesses to understand why these things take place. Thus, the ancient Greeks worship many gods and goddesses and believe that all the good and bad things happen to them because of these gods and goddesses. 

I find Greek mythology very interesting (there is a god for almost everything!), and I’m sure your kids will enjoy learning about it, too. There are several educational videos for kids online about Greek gods and goddesses that they can dive into!

  1. Greek Inventions

Greek Inventions | Tiger and Tim

Ancient Greece is one of the most advanced civilizations in history, partly because of the several modern inventions that had their origins in Ancient Greece millions of years ago, such as the yoyo and even the alarm clock! So thank you, ancient Greeks; because of your invention, Tim can wake up early to prepare our breakfast!

  1. Majority Wins

Majority Wins | Tiger and Tim

One way Tim and I decide on things around the house is through majority wins – too bad for Tim he only has two hands while I have four paws!

But did you know that the concept of majority wins, or as grown-ups call it, democracy, was first born in Ancient Greece? And this has been the blueprint for several justice systems and laws worldwide up until today. Amazing, right?!

  1. Origins of Marathon

Majority Wins | Tiger and Tim

Are you fond of going on a funny video marathon with your kids? Well, you have the ancient Greeks to thank for that.

No, they did not invent the television, silly billy! But it was in Ancient Greece that the idea of a marathon began (the actual marathon!). It all started with a messenger who ran from Marathon to Athens to tell the high officials about a significant war victory. The messenger ran a total of nearly 40 kilometers!

  1. Greek Theatre

Greek Theatre | Tiger and Tim

Aside from the Olympic Games and marathon races, the theatre also originated in Ancient Greece! The Greeks back then genuinely loved watching the theatre that they built theatres that can hold 15,000 people! This number may not be as massive in terms of YouTube views, but believe me, kids, that’s a lot of people in ancient times!

    8. Chronic Nappers Chronic Nappers | Tiger and Tim

If there’s one thing that I share with the ancient Greeks, it has to be our love for naps! 

Taking mid-day naps is considered a tradition in Greece that began centuries ago. They believe that a bit of shut-eye in the middle of the day is healthy. I have to agree!

9. Shake it Off

Shake it Off | Tiger and Tim

To add to the long list of things that originated in Ancient Greece, let’s add the handshake to it, too!

Yup, the custom of greeting someone with a handshake is believed to be part of Greek mythology when Hera (goddess of marriage) shook hands with Athena (goddess of intelligence).

Ancient Greece is indeed a fascinating place and time in history! If you need more Ancient Greece facts, watch our Twinkl video on YouTube with your kids and just about everyone who wants to know more about this trailblazing ancient civilisation!

Summer Holiday 2021: Tips on Travelling Safely with Kids

travel with your Tiger Cubs | Tiger and Tim

Can’t wait to travel with your Tiger Cubs? Here are some tips to help you plan a fun and safe summer family holiday!

fun and safe summer family holiday | Tiger and Tim

Summer is finally here, and wouldn’t it be nice to go out and enjoy the warm days outdoors? I know a lot of you cool cats are itching to travel with the entire family again. Travelling is a great learning opportunity for kids, like our fun videos! With several tourist spots and destinations opening their doors to visitors for the season, you might be wondering if it is safe for Tiger Cubs to travel – I know grown-ups are eager to show their kids the great outdoors!

Here at Tiger and Tim, we don’t just make videos, but we also want kids to enjoy the world around them! So we have rounded up some tips from experts on how you can plan your summer holiday 2021 with the whole family.

  1. Go wild for the wild

Go wild for the wild | Tiger and Tim

When it comes to adventures, the great outdoors never ran out of some good old-fashioned experience. If you plan to travel with your Tiger Cubs, national parks and camping sites are still your best bet, as they offer wide-open spaces to social distance (however, experts warn against overcrowded camping sites – it would be better to check ahead of time).

Kids learn a lot when given a chance to explore nature. They get to experience things they only see in videos or pictures up close! Ain’t that cool?

  1. Consider renting an RV

Consider renting an RV | Tiger and Tim

When travelling with kids, research shows that travelling in your private vehicle with people from the same household is still the safest option. 

Road trips are my favourite! But if you want to make things a little bit different, you might want to consider renting your RV! You get to travel along with the necessities from home and without worrying about sharing communal areas in camping parks. Plus, an RV looks cool – enough said!

  1. Go for vacation rentals

Go for vacation rentals | Tiger and Tim

Hotels can get pretty crowded during peak summer months, and it might be difficult for you and your family to social distance yourself in a packed elevator or indoor hotel restaurants. Furthermore, several hotels typically have stricter health protocols to ensure the safety of their guests.

vacation rental houses | Tiger and Tim

If you are looking for hotel amenities but without the crowds, go for vacation rental houses instead. Many vacation rentals are located near beaches and mountains, while there are also units that come with their swimming pool for your exclusive use!

You can familiarise your family with the location of your vacation rental by letting your kids watch videos or read articles about the area.

  1. Skip visiting grandma and grandpa if unvaccinated

Skip visiting grandma and grandpa if unvaccinated | Tiger and Tim

We all love grandpa and grandma! But if they are still unvaxxed, you might want to rethink your travel plans. Best if you can wait until they get the jab before visiting them to ensure that everyone’s on the safe side!

  1. Mask up!

Mask up! | Tiger and Tim

Health experts and officials still recommend the use of masks in public spaces. While many of you would want to go without the mask, some establishments and even transportation services like planes, buses, and trains still require masks for everyone. 

Explain to your Tiger Cubs that wearing masks will be part of the trip. However, it would be better to show kids how to wear their masks properly, too! 

  1. Preparation is key

Preparation is key | Tiger and Tim

Travelling requires a lot of planning – so I heard! So with COVID-19 still hanging around, preparation is the key to ensuring the whole family gets to enjoy the trip!

Part of your preparation is to know the rate of transmission in your destination of choice so you can assess better if you’d push through or look for a different area instead. You can also have kids watch learning videos about the places you are planning to visit.

family’s immune system | Tiger and Tim

Another way to prep for the trip is to boost your family’s immune system. Load up on fruits and vegetables before and during the trip. Pack healthy snacks (yum!) and remember to stay hydrated at all times, too!

Lastly, prepare extra masks, hand sanitisers, wet wipes, and other disinfecting essentials, as these can help everyone stay safe and healthy.

  1. Follow your instincts

Follow your instincts | Tiger and Tim

Several airlines, hotels, and resorts offer discounted rates and special summer promos to encourage everyone to travel. While this is good for some, you do not have to pack your bags and travel if you are still uncomfortable. 

There are several ways your kids can enjoy summer without having to go far (Check out our suggestions here!). Kids can spend their days in safe places near your home. They can also watch more learning videos on the stuff they want to learn more about, too!

Travelling and going to new exciting places is a great way for kids to explore the world outside their favourite videos. Of course, there are ways in which they can travel safely if your family is up for it, but they can also very well enjoy summer in the comforts of your home (and neighbourhood)!

Talk to you again soon! Stay safe, cool cats!

Developing Healthy Eating Habits for Kids

Healthy eating is essential in your Tiger Cubs’ holistic development. Here’s how parents and other grown-ups can help kids develop good eating habits.

Everyone knows how much I love eating! I even learnt how to cook for myself in one of our videos (Watch it on YouTube here)! Just like me, your kids also need to eat healthy foods to grow strong, bright, and full of energy. For this reason, developing positive eating habits for Tiger Cubs is essential for their development. Much like the Tiger and Tim videos for kids, eating healthy can also be fun for everyone in the family. Here’s how you can help your kids develop healthy eating habits.

  1. Have regular family meals

Eating together as a family is a great bonding activity (much like watching Tiger and Tim funny videos for kids!). It is also a good way for your Tiger Cubs to develop healthy eating habits with your guidance, as they can see you eat. They can also begin to associate mealtimes as a positive experience when you eat together.

Do you know what I love most about eating with Tim? He always lets me have the last bite off his plate!

  1. Variety is key

Another way to help kids develop healthy eating habits is through serving a variety of healthy foods and snacks. It will be easier for you to put vegetables and fruits in the mix with a varied menu. It will also be an excellent way for your kids to develop their palettes and know what kinds of food they love to eat.

Try to limit sweets and processed foods and always have yummy healthy options for the whole family. Keeping a varied menu for the family can be tricky, especially with picky kids, but there are several recipe videos online that can help you plan easily.

  1. Be a role model

Kids look up to the grown-ups at home in many ways, including the adults’ eating habits. If you want your Tiger Cubs to develop healthy eating habits, then mum, dad, and the other grown-ups at home should act as a role model for them.

Young children are very impressionable. Seeing you eat healthy foods is the first step in helping them love eating healthily as well. Seeing you have fun while eating healthy food is great for kids to develop healthy eating habits. Videos about eating vegetables and fruits (like Tiger and Tim *ahem*) can also positively influence your Tiger Cubs.

  1. Let kids in

Another way to develop healthy eating habits among your Tiger Cubs is to let them have a say in what they eat. Involve them in the process of planning, shopping, or cooking to make them feel part of the family. Involving your children can also be a great way to spend some quality time together, and they can learn a lot from you just by doing so. Planning with your kids can also be a great way to teach them about nutrition. Let them watch videos on YouTube Kids about planning and eating healthy meals, too!

  1. Keep it colourful

Kids eat with their eyes (just like me!). Anything colourful looks attractive and appetizing for them. One way to make them eat and love healthy foods is to keep their plates exciting. Put a variety of colours from different vegetables and fruits to keep them engaged (and full, too!).

If you’re feeling creative, try making them fun bento lunches full of different colours and shapes that are healthy and yummy! There are many videos online that will teach you how to make fun bento boxes for kids.

  1. Watch out for overeating and undereating

Young kids don’t always have the best control of their appetites. Some children tend to overeat (yup, can relate!), especially if you serve them their favourite meal. While it can be fun to indulge our Tiger Cubs, overeating can have adverse effects on their eating habits. If your child tends to overeat, offer them smaller portions and let them finish those first before giving them another one. Using a smaller plate can also do the trick.

On the other hand, some kids tend to undereat. If that is the case, serve small amounts of food during snack times to encourage them to eat during mealtimes. Avoid giving heavy snacks near mealtimes, as well. You can also watch educational videos for kids or nursery rhymes that promote healthy eating habits during mealtimes to reinforce the habit.

Mealtimes are a fun and positive way to bond with your Tiger Cubs. Serving them healthy foods and helping them develop healthy eating habits is something they would carry with them as they grow older.

There you have it, cool cats! I hope you’ll enjoy your next family meal with your young ones. After supper, gather the entire family and watch the latest episode of Tiger and Tim on YouTube Kids and our other streaming partners.

Summer Gardening Activities For Kids

Summer Gardening Activities For Kids

Make the most out of summer while having a blast with these gardening activities for kids!

Summer is a beautiful time for everyone to go outside and enjoy nature! What better way to take a break from watching movies and kids’ videos than to bust out those gardening tools and start a-digging! There’s no denying that kids love to play around in the dirt (me too!), so these activities will give kids the chance to learn and have a lot of fun while at it – kind of like Tiger and Tim learning videos for kids!

Gardening is an excellent way for kids to learn about nature and could even lead to them developing their green thumb (or, in my case, my green paw!). Gardening also shows kids how hard work and patience can lead to something beautiful and fruitful (delicious!!).

So here are ten fun and kid-friendly gardening activities to try with your Tiger Cubs this summer!

  1. Water plants

One way to introduce gardening to children is by allowing them to water the plants. We all looooove to play and splash around with water, and watering the plants every day is a fun little excuse to get our feet wet.

  1. Make seed bombs

Born out of the desire to make more green spaces in highly urbanised neighbourhoods, people started making seed bombs that are fun while serving a great purpose. Let your kids make seed bombs from flower seeds, compost, powdered clay, and some water. Then, go through nearby places that can use a little greenery in them and throw them away! Take videos so kids can go back to these spots throughout the year and watch as their little seed bombs grow.

Check out this article for a more detailed tutorial on how to make seed bombs.

  1. Make a herb garden

If you live in a flat and have no access to your backyard, then creating a herb garden indoors is the way to go!

Using recycled cans, yoghurt cups, and even egg trays, kids can make their herb garden even inside the house. Through planting herbs, kids can learn many things in real life, not just through watching videos. They get to be more involved and develop a sense of responsibility as they take care of their herb gardens.

  1. Create upcycled pots and planters

Make planting more interesting for your kids by having them upcycle pots and planters from different materials. Whether from used plastic jars to an old pair of boots, kids can unleash their creativity while decorating these upcycled planters to make them their own. Upcycling also helps kids learn about taking care of the environment and shows them that even kids can help save the planet.

  1. Grow a magic beanstalk

Okay, so Tim told me that my beans are not really magical – but this activity still works wonders on kids!

Get some beans, a clear jar, and some wet (but not soaked!) cotton balls. Now put the wet cotton balls at the bottom of the jar and wedge a bean between them. Put your bean jar by a sunny window and let your kids observe their growing beanstalk every day. In this fun little science experiment, kids learn about what plants need to thrive. Let them watch videos about the life cycle of a plant for them to better appreciate their bean jar experiment.

  1. Garden clean-up

Your backyard may not be precisely summer-ready right now, but that’s okay! Get your kids involved in sprucing up your garden before planting and growing new greenery. Younger Tiger Cubs can help pick up fallen sticks and twigs while older kids can help rake the dry leaves and prune old plants and shrubs.

  1. Have their own space in the garden

Let the children cultivate their own little space in the garden! You can have them choose to either plant greens and flowers or fruits and vegetables (or both!). Give them the task of watering their plants every day and let them observe the growth of their little garden. If they can, kids can take videos and photos to document their precious greenery.

  1. Make their watering can

Make watering plants even more fun by letting kids make their own watering cans. There is no need to buy new ones as you can always upcycle cans, jars, or bottles and use them as watering cans. Let kids show their creative side by decorating their watering cans, too!

  1. Build a bean teepee

Make your garden look more magical and fun with a bean teepee! Children can also help build this fantastic plant structure before they begin their adventures. Kids will be learning many things and will definitely have a good time as they help make the teepee. Here’s a video showing how to build your very own bean teepee.

  1. Create butterfly puddles

Butterflies make any garden look and feel more colourful! One way to attract more butterflies to your greenery is by making butterfly puddles. The best part about butterfly puddles? They are easy to make! All you need is a shallow container, sand, and some soil (you can also use compost or salt). Leave the puddle in your garden and wait – before look you’ll enjoy watching different butterflies drink from the puddle. Kids can also take videos and photos of their butterfly puddles to make this summer even more memorable!

There are several lessons kids can learn from gardening. Videos and books can also help but will only do so much. Getting their hands (or paws!) dirty will help children develop life skills such as patience, perseverance, and responsibility, while also learning the importance of nature.

That’s it, cool cats! Enjoy building your garden, whether big or small! Talk to you soon!

10 Fun Summer Outdoor Activities for Kids

Summer is here and what better way to spend it than frolicking outdoors? Here are some fun activities for kids this summer!

Warm days are upon us, cool cats! After a year of lockdowns and homeschooling, it’s nice to rediscover the outdoors once again. Take a break from watching kids videos on the TV and take advantage of the summer days with these fun outdoor activities for kids (works for tigers, too!). 

Don’t forget to take loads of funny photos and videos for kids to look back on after doing these activities!

  1. Bird watching

Birds are such lovely creatures! Sadly, most children only get to study these flying wonders of nature on educational videos on YouTube Kids. However, you don’t need to go to a bird sanctuary to watch some birds. Most likely, your local park is full of different kinds of birds that your Tiger Cubs can meet (with a pair of binoculars, of course!). You can even turn your backyard into a mini-bird sanctuary – just set up a bird feeder and watch the birds take over!

  1. Go on a picnic

No summer is complete without a good old-fashioned picnic! Plop down with your favourite snacks in a park or playground and let kids have fun and enjoy the outdoors. Remember to take photos and videos to document these fun picnic dates for kids and grown-ups!

  1. Go hiking

There’s no better way to enjoy the wonders of nature while breaking a little bit (or, in Tim’s case, a lot) of sweat at the same time than going on a hike! Choose a nearby route or take a drive to a nature park reserve. Your Tiger Cubs will have a blast looking at nature up close and not just on educational videos for kids.

  1. Build a terrarium

Another way to experience nature this summer is through building a terrarium, something you and your kids can do together. To create your mini-garden in a bottle, first you’d need a jar, then you’d need to fill it with pebbles, soil, moss, small plants, and succulents. Let your kids design their terrariums, or you can check out YouTube tutorials on making and growing a terrarium with your kids.

  1. Create sidewalk art

Want some fuss-free summer activity? Grab some colourful sidewalk chalk and let your kids go crazy creating their sidewalk masterpiece. Remember to snap some photos and send their sidewalk art to The Art Critique! We might just feature your kids on our YouTube channel!

  1. Fly a kite

Warm summer days are meant for flying a kite! You can either buy or make your kite. Then head out to the park with your kite and let the Tiger Cubs discover the simple wonder of flying a kite. 

  1. Have a Nerf battle

Take advantage of the warm days and stage a fun Nerf battle in your backyard with your kids. Load your water guns and blast away! Video it or it didn’t happen, okay?!

  1. Play some old-school games

Go on a trip down memory lane with your kids and play some old-school games such as hopscotch, jump rope, tag, kick the can, and so much more!

  1. Stargaze

Warm nights call for camping out in the backyard. Why not gaze at the stars to make things more fun and exciting. Prep the kids by watching some educational videos online or reading books about the different constellations to appreciate this fantastic activity better.

  1. Have a beach day

Summer days are meant to be spent at the beach! Now is the best time to put on your swimsuits and frolic in the waves with your Tiger Cubs. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen!

Summer is such a fun time to be a kid, and grown-ups can make this season even more fun and memorable. While at home, don’t forget to catch up on Tiger and Tim episodes on our YouTube channel and let the good times roll!

Activities for Kids While You Work At Home

Juggling work while at home with the kids is not easy. Here are some great tips that will help keep your kids busy!

Hey, cool cats! Are you still washing your hands? I hope you are because we still want to keep everyone safe and healthy! (Watch our ‘Wash Your Hands’ episode on YouTube) I hope your kids, too, are also regularly washing their hands!

The COVID -19 pandemic has made a lot of changes in our lives, including how many mums and dads work. Most parents have started working from home, too and until now, many are still in a work-at-home setup.

We know that many of you are looking for worthwhile activities for your kids while attending your video conferences, so here are 5 Tiger-approved fun videos and activities for kids (and kids-at-heart, too).

  1. Watch fun educational videos for kids

What better way to let your Tiger Cubs spend their free time than by watching educational videos for kids like Tiger and Tim episodes! Aside from learning a lot of cool and exciting things about the world, they also get to have a lot of fun! For kids, watching educational videos is not just some passive activity, but it can also become an extension of their lessons in school.

  1. Get creative

Here’s something that The Art Critique definitely recommends – do something creative! Let your kids paint, draw, or do some arts and crafts while you work (Read about how art can benefit children here). The best part is, we can feature your kids and their masterpieces on our YouTube videos. Check out some of our fun arts and crafts activities from The Art Critique here!

  1. Go on book adventures

While going on adventures in far-away places may not be possible yet, let your kids go on their own book adventures! Let them fall in love with reading as they discover extraordinary places, people, animals, and many others, all in the comforts of your home. They can also extend their learning from what they’ve read when watching funny videos for kids about their favourite book characters. Kids would love to see the images on the pages of their books come alive on screen. Speaking of book adventures, go check out our special Tiger and Tim books for your Tiger Cubs!

  1. Puzzles and blocks

Open-ended toys like blocks and fun brain teasers like puzzles are a classic when it comes to entertaining kids. Let their imagination run free as they build, create, and make whatever they may fancy using blocks and puzzles. These toys are not only fun to play with, but they also hone their creativity, problem-solving, and motor skills of your Tiger Cubs!

  1. Sensory play

For babies and toddlers, sensory play is not only fun but crucial to their development, too. Sensory play lets young Tiger Cubs explore and learn different textures while developing their fine motor skills such as pinching and grasping. Slime, clay, rice, and pasta are just some of the items you can incorporate in sensory play. 

If you’re not sure how to create a safe sensory play environment for your kids, there are several tutorials on YouTube that can help you make sensory play a hit for your Tiger Cubs.

We want to know what your Tiger Cubs’ go-to activities are while you work! Let us know in the comments below! But for now, why not grab a yummy snack and let your kids enjoy our latest episode up on our YouTube channel? I don’t know about you, but that’s my most favourite activity to do!

Catch up with you again soon!

Animals That May Go Extinct Soon (by Zookeeper Zack)

Animals That May Go Extinct Soon | Tiger and Tim

Howdy, guys and gals! It’s me again, Zookeeper Zack! You know me as the animal-loving dude from the Tiger and Tim funny videos for kids. It’s been a while since you last saw me on our YouTube Kids channel, so let me make it up to you on this blog and our next video – coming out real soon!

Dotty The Cat | Tiger and Tim

As a zookeeper, I love all kinds of animals – from house pets, zoo animals to wild animals in the jungle! But the sad reality is that there are endangered animals and are on the brink of extinction. Being endangered means that there aren’t many of these animals still living, and they might completely disappear on Earth very soon! There aren’t many videos that kids can watch about these endangered animals, so I’m here to tell everyone about the precious creatures that need our help!

Sumatran Rhino

Sumatran Rhino | Tiger and Tim

Sumatran rhinos once lived in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas and India. Around 800 of them are still living in 1986, but in 2008, the number dropped to 275. Sadly, it is now believed that only fewer than 100 Sumatran Rhinos are still around. Animal poaching, or the illegal killing of animals, was the first reason for the Sumatran rhinos’ dwindling number. However, loss of habitat due to illegal logging for oil, paper, and pulp causes their population to drop further. Unfortunately, other species of rhinos are also endangered.

Māui Dolphin

Māui Dolphin | Tiger and Tim Animals

Dolphins are really one of the gentlest creatures on the planet. But sadly, kids may only see them in videos in the future if their population continues to drop, especially the Māui dolphins. Found on the coast of North Island, New Zealand, it is estimated that only around 60 Māui dolphins are left. Large-scale fishing has been the main culprit for their population’s decrease.

Red Wolf

The red wolves are natives of the good ol’ south of the USA – just like me! Sadly, unlike our funny videos for kids, nothing is amusing about the red wolves’ current condition. These mysterious creatures are close to becoming extinct. There are only about 12 of them left in the wild. Red wolves fall victims to illegal hunting, while another reason for the decreasing number of red wolves is the continuous cross-breeding with coyotes.

Chinese Pangolin

The Chinese pangolins are one of the unique creatures in the world. These ‘pinecones with legs’ are the world’s only mammal with scales! However, because Chinese pangolins are often killed for their scales (which is believed to have healing properties), kids may only get to know about them on Youtube educational videos if we don’t help keep them alive.

Amur Leopard

Amur Leopard | Tiger and Tim Animals

I know our very own Tiger is one in a million (as you have seen in our videos for kids!), but Amur leopards are not only rare but are also endangered, and going extinct real soon. In fact, there are less than 100 of them left roaming the Amur-Heilong region in between far eastern Russia and northeastern China, while 180 are in captivity. These adorable wild cats are often traded illegally, causing their numbers to continue to drop.


Saola | Tiger and Tim Animals

Saolas had only been discovered in 1992, but they were already considered endangered. Saolas live in the mountains of Vietnam and Laos, and it is believed that there are less than 750 of them left in the wild. Unfortunately, saolas’ habitat is why their population is fast decreasing, as agriculture and infrastructure have destroyed many forests where they live in.

Tiger and Tim ang Giraffe | Tiger and Tim Animals

There are still many more endangered animals, too many in fact, that I could not fit them all into this list! However, you can learn more about the other different endangered animals and how we can help their survival rate increase from the various resources online such as videos so kids can fully understand. Organisations such as World Wildlife Foundation, among others, can give you more information about their conservation efforts for the many endangered animals in the world.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to catch me on the next Tiger and Tim episode coming out on our YouTube channel! Talk to you again, kids!

Simple Ways Kids Can Help Protect Rainforests

Kids Can Help Protect Rainforests | Tiger and Tim Jungle

Hello, Tiger Cubs! Have you seen the latest Tiger and Tim learning video for kids? (If you haven’t, you can watch it here) It’s all about the rainforest! We had so much fun in that crazy rainforest adventure. On top of that, we also learnt a lot of essential facts and information about the rainforest! 

Our newest episode is just like our other videos. Kids learn while having fun – that’s TIGER-RIFFIC, don’t you think?!  Shows like Tiger and Tim give kids a chance to learn about the world, and you cool cats know that I love learning new things!

Protect Rainforests | Tiger and Tim Junlge

Going back to our latest episode – as we know, the rainforests all over the world need our help. Saving the rainforests are not just the job of grown-ups, everyone (kids and tigers included!) can take part in protecting planet Earth, including the rainforests!

save the environment | Tiger and Tim Junlge

So here are simple ways kids (and adults) can help protect and save the environment, particularly our rainforests.

  1. Buy sustainably sourced foods

Buy sustainably sourced foods | Tiger and Tim Junlge

Sustainably sourced foods are food products that have been produced through responsible practices, from planting down to the selling of these goods. This simply means that the environment was not harmed or negatively affected in making the food. For this reason, buying sustainable food products like bananas and coffee is one step in helping save our rainforests.

  1. Use less paper

Use less paper | Tiger and Tim Junlge

Tim once told me that paper is made from trees. Because of this, whenever we use less paper in whatever way possible is already a huge deal for the rainforests around the globe. Using less paper and recycling the ones that we use can save a ton of trees in the rainforest, which means the ecosystem of our forests will continue to be preserved.

Here’s a short explainer video so kids can have a better understanding of how paper is made.

  1. Donate to organisations that protect rainforests

In our learning video for kids, Tim and I always say that we have to help others as much as possible. Donating to different environmental causes and organisations, such as the Rainforest Trust, Survival International, and Amazon Conservation Association, among others, regardless of the amount, can help a lot in supporting the work of these organisations. You can encourage your Tiger Cubs to allot a portion of their allowance and save up a certain amount they are willing to donate to protect and save the rainforests. I am saving up a part of my ice cream money so I can also help the rainforests!

  1. Adopt an animal

Adopt an animal | | Tiger and Tim Junlge

Protecting the animals that are living in rainforests is also an essential aspect of saving the environment. Tim adopted me from the jungle, and your kids can also adopt their very own wild animal – virtually adopt, that is! Different wildlife protection groups allow virtual adoption of various endangered animals; wherein everyone is encouraged to donate to the cause of protecting these animals. Adults and kids alike can watch videos of their adopted animals to get to know more about them.

I got lucky because Tim and I found each other. Now your kids can have their very own (virtual) Tiger, too!

  1. Learn more about rainforests

Last, and not least, is to keep learning more about how amazing rainforests are and how they can affect our daily lives. Our Rainforest Rangers learning video for kids is a great start. But there are many more other resources and shows that kids can watch to further their knowledge and understanding of how rainforests work and how we can work to save and protect them.

There you have it, cool cats! The world’s rainforests need our help, and every little step towards saving and protecting them will have a significant impact in the years to come.
