Over the years we have found many Free Online Educational Resources for Kids.

We bookmark the resources, we link to them on our website, we share them on social media, but somehow we can't find what we want when we are looking for it. Making our own list of resources so they can be found easily seemed like a good idea to us. We want to share our list with you so your kids can have fun learning and exploring the online world safely. This list is primarily sites for the kids themselves, although we did include some resources for the adults. If you have an online resource that you would like to share please let us know in the comments section below! We've included links to our own hands-on learning activities, too. Just click on the pictures to explore.
