The Kid Should See This

Video Playdate, an Echo Song from Noodle Loaf

From our friends at Noodle Loaf, the hit music education podcast for kids, enjoy this ode to the Video Playdate. It’s in the form of an Echo Song. Host and creator Dan Saks explains, “All you have to do is sing what I sing after I sing it!”

Video playdates are front and center for kids (and adults) who have computers and a good internet connection. Though not ideal, these online get-togethers with friends and family are a sweet way to see each other when you can’t spend time together in person… “and for that,” Saks writes, “we salute you, Video Playdate!”
