Our family, like most, is often busy. We have school drop off and pick ups for Lawson, virtual school for Addie, therapies, doctor appointments, errands, and more. It can get pretty hectic. One thing I love to encourage while we have the availability is to have “Pajama Fridays” every week. I try to plan something fun for us to do each Friday to end our week on a high note and foster family time. Sometimes that looks like playing board games, other times it means snuggling on the couch and watching our favorite Netflix shows.
We’ve been able to get a sneak peek of the new Netflix show, Octonauts Above & Beyond, and the kids love it! As a former teacher, I love planning a fun activity or craft with our Pajama Fridays, so I came up with Octonauts Above & Beyond Adventure Mix to create alongside our watch party!
Lawson loves watching Octonauts and has always been drawn to their underwater adventures. There’s so much to see and explore under the water! Barnacles, Kwazii and Peso embarked on various adventures in their fleet of underwater Gups with the mantra to Explore, Rescue and Protect the underwater creatures and environment around them. I love that their adventures are based on real creatures, real environments, and incorporate real science.
Octonauts Above & Beyond is a new spin-off series where the Octonauts take their adventures beyond the sea and onto land! In this new global mission the Octonauts are equipped with an exciting new fleet of land-based Terra Gups and a new flying HQ, the Octoray! In the first episode, The Skeleton Coast Adventure, our favorite characters shipwreck onto a desert coast and meet Paani, a scientist. Lawson loves new Octo-Agent Paani, and keeps talking about how he needs his own Octoray, the new mobile land HQ. The Octonauts mission remains as vital as ever- they’ll EXPLORE harsh and remote environments, RESCUE animals that need their help, and PROTECT the land and all living creatures!

Here’s What You’ll Need:
Octonauts Above & Beyond Bingo
Looking for an activity to go with that Adventure Mix? Try playing the Octonauts Above & Beyond Bingo! The game is simple: Each player starts with a Bingo board and Bingo counters. Choose one person to be the caller. The caller pulls one item and announces it. If a player has a matching square on the Bingo card, place a counter over it. When you get a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row of 5, yell out Octo-Alert! That person becomes the winner!
