My kids love to use my computer. Mostly because I think it makes them feel a bit like a grown up. Plus, it’s entirely entertaining when you’re their age, so what’s not to like?
After hours upon hours spent perusing the internet and finding some great, and not so great, websites geared toward kids, I thought I’d put together a little list and introduce you to the websites that we visit the most often.
I’m happy to give up my computer time because they’re learning (and sometimes not even realizing it!) and having fun, and miraculously, not complaining about not playing video games or watching TV, and they’re happy because they’re being entertained and enjoying their online time.
Check out my top picks for kids websites below and then let me know if there are any that your family would add to the list!
This is a great phonics and letter recognition website for preschoolers. Once registered, kids can play a variety of games that will start them on their journey to become independent readers. Parents can even have updates on their child's progress emailed directly to them. Your kids will love it and the audio will only drive you slightly insane. This might be a good one for your little to use with headphones.
