    Love KidSnippets! “Addicting” is the right word for them! My family loves to spend an evening watching Youtube videos and laughing together, but finding funny and totally clean channels is hard sometimes! I have two further recommendations of by kids/teens for kids/teens channels for anyone perusing the comment section here: TotallyFantasticYo https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQxMeSRxuu6_HUGj84shVCA (teenagers who like a lot of puns…and Abraham Lincoln) and Seven In All (Seven siblings who live overseas and make videos about their life) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCciJnU21YkX3jsaWBZKN-4g
