Computers have a lot to offer kids today! Here are a few of the websites that my grandchildren enjoy:
Highlights Kids is wonderful. It’s filled with puzzles, games, science experiments, crafts, recipes, animated stories, and more.
Storybird is great for budding writers and encourages creativity. Children not only can create and “illustrate” their own stories on Storybird, but they also can read and hear stories.
How about Poptropica? It’s got lots of games that my grandsons really enjoy.
And Crayola’s website is packed with things for kids to do. I especially like the learning coloring pages (language arts, math, science, and social studies), coloring pages for cars and trucks, puzzles, and games pages.
Now, I sure I can’t forget Clubhouse Magazine’s website. It’s especially good for kids who can read. It’s filled with jokes, games, stories, videos, madlibs and more. And for the younger ones, try Clubhouse Junior with its coloring pages, crafts, and Bible stories.
What are some of your children’s or grandchildren’s favorite websites?
