Websites for kids

Friday's Grand Connection Fun

Computers have a lot to offer kids.Here are some 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 active 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, and 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 websites do your grankids enjoy? Please leave a comment below or e-mail me at mary@marymaywrites.com. Thanks!

Have a great weekend!

That is a wealth of information. Storybird sounds perfect for children to experience creativity. My sister used to write a weekly story and sew the paper book on the sewing machine. ( She could sew when she was nine years old) We couldn’t wait for the next story. When I read Jack London’s “Call of the Wild” the last page was missing. Theresa made up a wonderful ending for me. --Rita
