Young children love to play on the computer. So why not help them learn at the same time. Remember when you were in school how fun it was to go to the computer lab. Children can play games while they learn important skills. Teaching children how to manipulate the computer is vital in our technology driven society. Here are some good websites for your little ones to play and learn at the same time.

Fun Brain- This site has games for preschooler through school age. There are lots of fun games that work on math, reading, and other skills. Your child can really grow through this site.

PBS kids- Every show your child enjoys watching on PBS has its own area with its own games. So your child can interact with the characters they already enjoy. They can even watch some of their favorite shows on the site.

Sesame Street- We all know how educational Sesame Street has been on TV. Well now they have made it interactive with their website. Children can watch videos and play games all while learning colors, letters, rhymes, and so much more.

National Geographic Kids- This site is a good way to bring science to your child. Children love animals. On this site it teaches them animal sounds and shows animals in their own habitats. It also has great games, puzzles, and experiments to make science fun.

Remember that websites are a tool to help children learn. The computer should not replace hands on learning. Children need a balance of learning math, reading, science, and writing. As well they need balance between working online and hands on activities. You can even take ideas from the sites and make hands on games for children to play to reinforce what they learned online.
