NASA KIDS CLUB

The NASA kids club is an excellent website for  kids with an interest in space. It offers a range of interesting educational activities and games focused on space and technology. 

What I like about the website is that it provides activities for kids of all ages and you can set the difficulty level of the games on offer.There are also  various sections catering for the Public, Educators and for Students with various free  tools and resources.

Some memorable games include

Grab It

A fun game in the Skill Level 1 where you grab items beginning with the letter in the Space Shuttle.

Rocket Builder

In Skill Level 2 you can build your own rocket.

Print and Play

The website also allows you to download and print activities in its "print and play" section. This is very useful for educators and parents.

 

Verdict

The NASA Kids Club is not as content rich as most other children's website and you would expect a little more from the worlds leading space agency. It does, however offer some very useful and enjoyable educational tools.

Cbeebies

As a parent you can really trust the BBC for delivering high quality children's programmes in an ad-free enviroment. This website is great and has a lot of games and activities to keep your child busy.

 

Cbeebies is home to a lot of children's' favourites like Mr Tumble, the Octonauts and In the Night Garden(a toddler classic). Most of the games on Cbeebies can be played on a computer. I havent tested it on tablet devices.

Some Memorable Games:

Octonauts Make a Picture

A fun game where you can draw, paint and also add pictures of your favourite characters.

Resources for Parents

I stumbled across this really helpful section in "Something Special" that includes many useful resources for parents, especially those with children with learning difficulties. 

This section provides resources for parents and offers advice on various subjects like coping with change, communication, special needs, emotion behaviour etc.

Verdict

Although not as content rich as the PBS website the Cbeebies website provides excellent free material and will keep your children busy for ages. It is also a very useful resource for parents and in general very educational. I like the fact that all this material are advert free.

Sesame Street- Games and activities

sesamestreet

Wow! What a website with tons of content. This is such a good resource to use for your little ones and there are so many games and activities to choose from that will keep your toddler occupied for a long time. The only downside of  the website is that it is extremely busy and could be difficult to navigate. I did, however have a look at some of the Sesame Street games and some worthwhile mentioning are the Cookie Monster's Alphabet Soup as well as Elmo's first day at School.

The PBS Shop

PBS has a great shop where you can purchase a wide range of products conveniently sorted by category, character, brand, age and personalised gifts

The PBS Shop is a great place to look for your children's favourite character merchandise.
