free fun and learning game sites my preschool boys love: part 3
Posted by contentgrrl on December 10, 2007
My sons, 2 and 5, have some time on the computer every week. When they play online, they have a select few favorite sites:
Third on my list is PBS Kids:
Like Playhouse Disney, PBS is also high on my list, but not as popular with my boys. Curious George unfortunately keeps getting in trouble, so I’m not sure I want to encourage sneaky unsafe behavior; but some of the games are nicely challenging in terms of pattern recognition (skates) and animal-sound matching. Much to my husband’s chagrin, they discovered Teletubbies, which plays on my boys’ love of babies to a cloying extent. But then there’s the Sesame Street, Between the Lions, and Mister Rogers. There are dozens of other show-related subsites for older kids too.
