Preschool Games

Have you ever seen a four-year old navigate the Web? It’s pretty amazing how fearlessly they click around, finding their favorite activities, which usually means online games! But remember, the Internet is a big place, and it is best explored with mommy or daddy by their side.

Boowa & Kwala: 818 Games5 stars

These colorful, musical, original games for ages zero (zero?) to six are divided into twenty-four categories: songs, stories, hide and seek, print and paint, mazes, shapes, sorting things, craft activities, etc. I found them enchanting; I'm sure your preschooler will also. For older kids, there is another part of the site titled Up to Ten (and, you guessed it, it's for elementary kids up to age ten.)

Disney Junior: Games5 stars

"Make new forest friends with Bambi!" Many of childhood's favorite characters can be found in these Disney games, including Bambi, Winnie the Pooh and Mickey Mouse. The games can be accessed by character, or by style of game, such as Colors and Shapes, Dress Up, Music or Memory. In addition to the interactive games, there are also video episodes, printable coloring pages and animated, multimedia stories.

Nick Jr: Preschool Games5 stars

With stars like Dora the Explorer, Diego, Dino Dan, Blue (of Blue's Clues fame) and the Backyardigans, your preschooler is sure to love these games, crafts, activities and printable coloring pages. The game pages are sorted by TV Show, Themes (Art, Dress Up, Puzzles, Sports, Stories, and so on) and Ages (from two to six year olds.) A few characters have their own, separate sites (SpongeBob and Neopets) and you'll find their links at the very bottom of the page.

Sesame Street: Games5 stars

Who is your favorite Sesame Street character? Whether it's Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar, Ernie or Grover, you'll never have to choose just one, with games for so many beloved characters here at Games are also organized by subject (science, numbers, disabilities, cultural appreciation) and themes (animals, food, weather, and family). Interactive coloring pages are listed under "ART" in the horizontal menu near the top of the page.

Sheppard Software: Preschool Games5 stars

No famous television characters here, but a wonderful collection of interactive, educational games just for preschoolers and kindergarten kids. Subjects include animals, colors, numbers, letters and shapes. "Shapes are all around us. Here are some items that are shaped like Circles, Squares and Triangles." At the bottom of the page (in the left-hand corner) are links to interactive painting games, memory games and online jigsaw puzzles.
