Something really special has come out of needing to stay home, and that's that companies across all platforms are working to release content and programing geared for kids who are home from school (and are unable to go hangout with their friends). This is uncharted territory for a lot of families; children needing to stay home and be homeschooled while parents also need to do their own work by working from home. Sony Pictures employees are going through this as well and that's when the idea for Sony Pictures' brand new YouTube channel was born. This new channel provides videos of crafts, science experiments, dance routines and sing-alongs all in a way that can get kids involved in their own homes.
