It’s been a long, hot summer, and for a lot of moms, the first day of school, while sometimes both exciting and scary for kids, also means more quiet time. As you wipe the single tear from your cheek, you think to yourself: no more backyard bickering, coming up with creative things for them to do or crowdsourced grocery shopping.

Whether you’re still waiting for them to get back to school or your kids are already back to school, a little help from some awesome Netflix TV shows and movies can help to ease them back into the education mindset while disguised as fun.

Check out this list of kids movies and TV shows to stream on Netflix!

For older kids, put a fun spin on the stuff they’re dreading — math homework, spelling tests, science reports — the brand new Project Mc² Netflix Original Series, which premiered on August 7, proves smart is the back to school trend. The show features four supercool teen spies who show how girls can use their science smarts and math problem-solving skills to save the world. Total #SmartGirl inspo! Watch the trailer here.

  7. My husband and I keep debating whether or not we should get Netflix, but I think it would be fun!

  8. We’ve sen a few episodes of how states got their shapes, so interesting! We are streaming continum, supernatural, and are waiting for walking dead to come out a gain. We’ve watched as much as we can of hell on wheels, house of cards, longmire, and finished up breaking bad. On my own I watch bones, and been meaning to watch scandal & sherlock holmes.

  12. I love Netflix! I’ve been streaming Mistresses and all Anthony Bourdain’s shows (I love him!)

  13. I left Netflix a long time ago because I used the boxes at stores to rent. Now I remember why I shouldn’t have. No trips to stores with Netflix!!!

  18. I don’t have a child in the age range for it, but I’m so happy Netflix is making ProjectMC2 that I think I’m going to watch it myself! We also love How the States Got Their Shapes- it’s sooooo interesting! Thanks for posting these updates. I always love thee what’s new!

  19. Don’t currently get Netflix because I currently don’t have time to watch that much TV/movies so wouldn’t use it enough to subscribe to it, but maybe I will some day; however, thanks for posting!

  20. I basically turn on the television when I get up and it stays on until I go to bed. I don’t know what’s on half of the time.I like the old black and white shows. Daniel Boone, Mr. Ed, stuff like that.

  21. Is it weird I am excited about Reading Rainbow and I don’t have kids? I loved this show and was excited he was making more.

  22. I was so excited to see the magic school bus on Netflix!! I have loved that show since forever!! talk about bringing back my childhood!! My son just loves it too!! I love that its educational and just totally out there!!
