Spending time with loved ones and friends by making homemade Valentine's cards, decorations, and crafts is a great way to celebrate love! Whether you're helping with a class party or crafting with your own kids at home, we have lots of fun ideas to spread the love this Valentine's Day. 

Happy New Year! You have probably noticed our name change. KUED Kids is now PBS KIDS Utah. We are excited to announce that even with a new name, we are still the same great station!

It’s easy to get overwhelmed during the holidays with the hustle and bustle of holiday errands. It’s important to take time to get outside and breathe. This year we've put together an outdoor bucket list so you can get some fresh air with your kids and enjoy the season together!  

November is a great time to teach your kids gratitude. When we feel and show gratitude every day, we are happier overall! 

We are excited to announce changes that will be coming to the PBS Kids schedule, starting November 11. Not only will a new series Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum launch, but a new weekend-specific schedule will also launch on the 24/7 channel. With these changes, kids can now watch more of our educational and top-rated programs on the weekends! 

My kids, ages 7 and 4, adore PBS KIDS, and the library is an often-requested destination in our home. So participating in the November Reading Marathon Kickoff Party has become a well-loved tradition for our family that cannot be missed.

The KUED Kids Annual Reading Marathon Kickoff party has been an event that we look forward to each November. Last year, my 7 year old son, Kasper, decided that he would invite his best friend to attend the 2018 celebration with him, and it did not disappoint!

We loved participating in the 2018 KUED Kids Reading Marathon Kickoff. We also appreciated going on monthly adventures with the Adventure Pass in January, February, and March. What a wonderful program to motivate kids to read – and get us out into the community during the winter.

Cyberchase, the award winning PBS KIDS math series, is pleased to announce a texting program for teachers of grades 1-4. Interested in participating? Text KUED to 30644 to sign up now!


October is Kindness Month at KUED Kids! Teaching kids empathy, inclusion, and bullying prevention is essential in their early years of development. It is also important that parents and teachers recognize the signs of bullying and help put a stop to it in schools.

The 2019 KUED Kids Writers and Illustrators Contest celebrated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing by encouraging children grades K-6 to submit original illustrated stories on the theme of space. KUED received over 200 submissions from kids and classrooms across the state. The first, second, and third place winners were chosen by a panel of judges that included educators, KUED community partners, and arts administrators. Winning stories are being featured in a traveling exhibit that debuted at the Clark Planetarium this summer at our moon landing anniversary celebration. 

PBS KIDS is celebrating “Family Week” with new episodes from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood starting on September 16. To celebrate, Fred Rogers Productions has created NEW Family Fun activity pages. Whether sharing cherished memories or a favorite recipe, these activities make it easy to engage all your family members -- from grandparents to your littlest ones.

At the end of August, PBS Kids is introducing a whole new schedule on 24/7 (7.3)! As part of the change, Sesame Workshop will launch the premiere of Esme and Roy on August 31. 

Each school year brings about changes and changes can sometimes bring challenges for your little ones. Help your child with the excitement of heading back to school and encourage them as they transition to a new grade, with a new teacher, in a new classroom.  Check out these helpful tips from PBS Kids for Parents
