With a husband and four boys, one would think we’d have a football fan or two around the house. That’s not exactly the case, though. Most of the football season is ignored, however the Super Bowl does spark some interest. And, where there is a spark of interest, there’s learning!

Commercials are a favorite part of the Super Bowl for many viewers. Youtube has several collections of them. I’m not including a direct link to any of them because some of them are not children or family friendly, even though my search term was “super bowl commercials kids and pets”. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=super+bowl+commercials+kids+and+pets
Wishing you Super Learning!
