    This is a great idea to let kids have screen time but with educational websites so they’re learning. It has been very cold lately where I live so kids can’t go outside and these are sites they can play and learn on while being stuck inside.

      I love seeing the excitement on my daughter’s face when she plays these educational games on the computer. ABCMouse is her favorite!

    Great list of websites for children. As a teacher, I recommend several of these to my own parents.

    All of these educational sites are wonderful. My children had some subscriptions to the actual magazines from some of them.
