Kids are bored?
Kids are bringing the house down ‘coz they have nothing else to do?
You’re worried about how they’re spending their free time at home?
For every parent who’s wondering how to keep kids engaged while they’re home – here’s a list of 30+ websites that are sure to keep your kids engaged in a productive way, through fun and learning!
This list has been carefully curated by Moms who homeschool, and so you can be assured that almost all of them have educational value.
As a parent, I understand that you might be just as concerned as I am, about excessive screen-time for kids. So, the best way to use this resource is to first go through them personally, then sit with your child and chart out a rough schedule that allots an hour daily (or whatever is mutually agreed) for your child to explore these websites. They will surely want more, because these are really good resources, but try not to give in!
While some of the listed websites are completely about fun things kids can do without any gadgets, some other websites with online content provide ideas for related projects that can be done offline. Encourage your kids to continue their online learning with these offline projects. Wherever the website does not provide any offline projects, nudge your kids to brainstorm ideas and come up with creative work that they can do related to what they’ve learnt!
Here’s a video with the sneak-peek to the list (Click here to download the Free PDF)
So, without further ado, below is the list that I’ve been going ga-ga about! Feel free to explore them at your own pace.
If you’d prefer a more detailed outline that talks about what each website is about, the age-group it is appropriate for, is it free/paid – then head over here to download the free PDF that’s more elaborate to make your work easier!
