Budding DIYers will want to tune in for these gregarious sisters' adventures that are more well-rounded than a 30-minute series billed as "life hacks" would suggest. Yes, plenty of attention is given to kid-friendly projects like jazzed-up jeans and personalized headphones for a car trip, but these whirlwind field trips are enjoyable in their own right. As Gillian and Angeline meet adults with as much passion for their jobs as the hosts have for their hobbies, viewers get to see that pursuing your interests can take you places you may never have imagined -- and that's a great message for all kids.

Life Hacks for Kids: On the Road is a fun pick for parents and kids to watch together, and it encourages conversations about experiencing new things, meeting new people, and turning mistakes into learning opportunities. If you're a DIYer, even better. Grab your glue gun and your glitter, and get ready to be inspired to team up with your kids for some projects inspired by Gillian and Angeline.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
