Catagories here include: Entertainment, reading, science, social studies, study resources and a load more. This is a huge site with lots to do.
Kids jokes: Although these jokes are often funny for people of all ages, kids and adults alike, they are typically geared toward children and young adults. By this, they mean that they have a shortness and simpleness about them that allow an individual at virtually any age to get a good laugh. *note to parents* This site has a newsletter.
Very well done flash entry. There's a clubhouse, create pages, arcade, musicmania, storyville, braintrain, etc. *note* there is a mall so parents should check this out first. There are also pop ups on this page.
The only thing I don't like about this site is they do ask for donations so be aware of that fact. They do have some great stuff there though including instructions for kids on how to make animations, etc..
|Art - kids rule!
More fun stuff to do. Paint online, photograph, spirograph, magic... All about art and links and such.
