    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.

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