How this Episode Can Help You & Your Kids…
We go on a field trip to 3 of the world’s cutest convenience stores, all themed with cartoon characters. It’s Hello Kitty VS Snoopy VS Kanahei’s Animals. Which one do you think is the cutest?

This was filmed in Taiwan, with ALL 3 convenience stores in Taiwan.

Snoopy Peanuts 7-11: 800高雄市新興區民族二路90號 - Google Maps
Kanahei’s Small Animals 7-11: 800高雄市新興區五福二路209號 - Google Maps

These 7-Elevens are way more interesting than the boring 7-Eleven in Australia where I grew up! (Search “7-11 Bonnyrigg” in Google to see photos for proof)

// In this video, kids can learn about convenience stores, such as:
-vocabulary names of food and other items you can buy there
-healthy food options, like sugar-free food or eating fruits
-what you can do there for fun, such as toys and books

// Find out some WEIRD facts, like:
-Did you know that 7-Eleven has its own cartoon mascot character? Find out this strange animal.
-A convenience store has a big yellow bus inside of it
-Another convenience store has a kids library inside

How this Episode Can Help You & Your Kids…
Join us on a field trip to a real fossil museum and learn about dinosaur bones (T-Rex, etc) and other prehistoric animals (Mammoth, Ancient Rhino, etc). This is a special fossil museum because REAL fossils from the Ice Age were discovered nearby. We had to journey on a long, winding bus ride to a remote area to reach this museum.

This was filmed at Tsai-Liao Fossil Museum of Tainan City in Taiwan:

// In this video, kids learn these things at a Fossil Museum:
-Pronunciation of Dinosaur Names and other strange animals
-How to put Dinosaur Puzzles together, just like a Paleontologist
-What are Fossils, and why are they important?

// Find out some WEIRD facts, like:
-How did different dinosaur claws look like up close?
-How much did a mammoth weigh?
-A dinosaur that had a trumpet on the back of its head

I love the Snoopy 7-11s :slight_smile:

@bananas Hahaha! Yeah, that was my favorite, too. The giant Snoopy and the big bus were so cool. Be sure to check out the Snoopy 7-11 in Kaohsiung if you haven’t already. It’s such an experience

In today’s field trip/excursion, we learn how to roller skate for kids at a colorful roller rink.

Watch the full video to learn roller skating for kids here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9y-x7P2Cto&list=PLJyU9yEOll4n85l0zop0o02awh5ogcJ99

This was filmed at Roller 186 Roller Rink (大魯閣 Roller186滑輪場 新時代館) in Taroko Mall Taichung, Taiwan:
401台中市東區復興路四段186號6F - Google Maps

I teach kids the basics of roller skating with short tutorials, such as:
-how to roller skate forward,
-turn left and right,
-stop on roller skates, and
-roller skating backwards.

But I’m only human, and even I make some mistakes…I accidentally fall down on my backside at 6:45 - It really hurt!

That’s why I then teach kids about falling safely on roller skates, and to do their best to bend down low or use their knee pads if they’re about to fall.

We also encourage kids to use roller skating safety gear, such as knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and helmets.

Roller skating for kids can be so much fun! We even show kids how to do fun activities like:
-beginner dance moves on roller skates, and
-how to play roller skating games like the obstacle course cone game, the colorful scoop game and the monkey race game.

// WHO IS MR ALBIE?
Mr Albie has worked as a teacher in classrooms for several years in Sydney, Santiago & Tainan. Also, worked for an education technology app based in Chicago for some years. Plus, managed School Meals Feeding programs to improve education & health for vulnerable school kids in Cox’s Bazar. Born in Manila, grew up in Sydney, with a Bachelors degree from UNSW (Sydney), and a Masters degree from UCL, University of London. His wife has a Bachelors of Social Work, specializing in child development. The videos are inspired by their two children.

// WHY I DO THIS?
When I was a new dad, I felt awkward and nervous around my young kids and didn’t know how to talk or connect well with them. I was always so serious, and would rather be reading something, always in my own head - and frankly being selfish or maybe I just didn’t know better. My wife suggested that I should spend more time with the kids by actually teaching them things, and sharing my passion for learning with them. I did that, and over several months and years, I discovered that I connected more with them by learning new things with them. But it was important to do it in a way that appealed to them as kids. So it had to be fun!

Over time, it turns out that I’ve learned so much from them too about creativity, joy and family - plus many other things that I can’t simply read from a book. Cub Wings is an extension of this journey of learning and adventuring, brought to you by our family. We are NOT a media conglomerate. I’m NOT a professional actor. Just a dad who loves geeking out with his kids on “learning adventures”, and sharing these with other kids along the way.

This was filmed in Taiwan at the Castle Library in Douliu City, Yunlin County.

Kids books often have wonderful stories and fairy tales. Well, this learning adventure itself is a fantastical story too. Wizard Albie helps the fairy tale prince and princess Cubs learn 3 secrets about how to read for kids - even if they can’t read 1 word yet.

This video helps:

  • give 3 reading tips for kids, plus a powerful BONUS tip
  • kids learn about different types of library books
  • encourage reading for kids
  • inspire kids to check out their local library

This video is inspired by our daughter who believes she is Princess Elsa and son who is Olaf the snowman.

I have always loved reading books since I was a kid. Books have helped me go on fantastical adventures, broaden my imagination and vocabulary, and helped me learn more about myself and the world. So I’m excited to share this video to help other kids get excited about reading too.
