Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. August 10, 2011
Although my blogging skills pale in comparison to most of the amazing 3600+ women that attended BlogHer ’11 with me this weekend in San Diego, I had a great time. One of the highlights was learning more about running a community blog where everyone in the community has the opportunity to add content, not just in the form of comments, but blog posts, images, and so on. I also had a personal triumph, that I will share with you next week.
See ya on the Net,

#2. Preschool Games

Preschool Games Printable (** for premium members only)
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 Games
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: Games
“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 Games
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.
