Martha Stewart Gets Animated!

The crafty, creative and oh-so-savvy Martha Stewart has recently launched an animated series for children called Martha & Friends on AOLKids. There will be 26 original short-form webisodes that will air bi-weekly. The series will follow a 10 year old cartoon version of Martha, as she and three friends go on fun adventures. They, along with the little viewers, will learn to use their creativity and problem solving skills throughout each episode, and afterwards they can visit the website to download project instructions and recipes.

Martha had this to say about her new show, “Kids are extraordinarily imaginative and we are so glad to be part of a project that encourages, celebrates and rewards their innate creativity and curiosity. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a passion for crafting and cooking and my hope is that this series will inspire a whole new generation of do-it-yourselfers.”  It sounds pretty fun, but I wonder if the kids will go for it. Hopefully the future episodes are a little more captivating then this clip from her half hour Fourth of July special. Lol, it almost put me to sleep! If this clip caught your attention, click here to watch the full episode.

Do you think your crafty kids will want to watch a kid friendly version of Martha Stewart?
