I really enjoyed putting together this list of free websites for kids. First, because I was able to discover new sites and share them with my daughters.
Second, I had the “excuse” to play these online games while working on this list for you. As a busy Type-A mom, I rarely give myself the opportunity to play since there are always things to do. In this case, this post allowed me to do both at the same time.
Quick notes before accessing these online games
For this post, I reviewed many websites and only considered those websites that I would feel comfortable sharing with my own kids.
While evaluating a website, if I noticed too much violence and/or sexual messages or images, I simply moved on to another website.
However, keep in mind that each family has different rules.
Therefore, double-check the website to make sure it is appropriate for your child to play on, and as always, don’t forget to monitor your child while playing online.
Most of these free websites only require an updated version of Adobe Flash to start playing. The majority of these websites let you access their games instantly while some may require a quick registration process.
List of Free Websites for Kids
In this website, games are organized by grade level. My daughter loves playing on this site, especially cooking her own pizza. But there are a lot more games available such as the Math Bingo where your child can practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
In addition to math, you can find games that focus on skills and strategies. Here, you can also find several typing games including a ghost one which is helpful and entertaining…but my little one gets scared of the ghosts.
This site brings back childhood memories because it has games based on classic characters such as Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Looney Tunes, The Flintstones, and Scooby-Doo.
You can find modern characters too, like Talking Tom, Taffy, Oddbods, and The Zhu Zhus.
Here you can find the Power Puff Girls, Teen Titans Go, Unikitty, Craig of the Creek, and Ben 10, among many other popular characters from the Cartoon Network.
There are different ways to start playing: select your favorite character, a featured game from the top section, a popular game from the middle section, or just check the list of all the games.
I’m glad I found this website because it has a wide variety of entertaining games for different ages. Their games include Foosball, Animals Crush, Alien Bridge, Burger Now, and Baby Cat Adventure (which quickly became one of my daughter’s favorite games from this site).
Find games by choosing between easy or hard games, puzzles, adventure, animals, sports, racing, and more.
For educational games, click on science, math and word games. They also have Match the Flag games which help kids with social studies. That’s not all, you can find popular characters such as PJ Masks, True, Daniel Tiger, and many others.
By the way I saw several games for you too, including Klondike Solitaire, Jumper Frog, hockey games, and Word Hunter.
These games are for little kids. Preschoolers can play with puzzles, coloring pages, memory, matching games, and more. Even though this site doesn’t have many games available, your child can still have a good time and master important skills.
This site has games for kids from Pre-K to first grade. You can search for games by grade or by categories such as language, science, and math.
Some of the games that I saw were sight words, US maps, short vowels, compound words, opposite adjectives, rhyme time, ABC words, and the human body.
In addition to educational games, they have fun games like the hungry frog, pop a balloon, and jumping monkey.
The only thing that I would change is the voice of the man who provides the instructions for the games. In my opinion, the voice is not scary but a bit too serious for a site dedicated to little kids.
