    Dr. Seuss | Seussville.com - seussville.com - www.seussville.com/
    Free Online Games | Big Fish Games - bigfishgames.com -
    Starfall's Learn to Read with phonics - starfall.com - www.starfall.com/
    Welcome to HighlightsKids.com - | HighlightsK... - highlightskids.com -

    Is PBSKids.org too young for them? My girls love it, but they are 5.

    - Glogster: http://www.glogster.com/

    - Improve your typing: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/
    - BBC website (British again, but very good): http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/

    There is one that my girls both love to play on, but I will warn you to make sure YOU type the name into the browser...because one wrong word and you won't believe what pops up :woah:
    Some of the games are a bit odd..but McKenna and Josie both love the cooking ones..

    Lego is a great one too...lots of building stuff, not just for the boys.

    Thanks! I book marked the ones i think my girls will like.
    Right now they are both enjoying raz-kids.com. It is so funny watching them both play/read on it. The differences in their styles while are that site is so funny. Dani is all about taking the quizing and collecting the stars. Sydney loves to spend the stars on the raz rocket.
