For the past year I’ve been working on merging many of my standalone sites into Surfnetkids.com. The newest sites to be “gobbled up” are Preschool Fun, Nursery Rhymes Online, and Make Play Dough. They are been rolled into a Surfnetkids section called “Early Childhood Education” over at http://www.surfnetkids.com/early/.
We even have a separate newsletter for this section. It only comes out once a month, but if this is an age group that interests you, I encourage you to sign up. You’ll find a sign-box in the upper-right hand corner (just below the nav menu) on any page within the Early Childhood Education section.
See ya on the Net,

Hawaii Printable(** for Premium Members only)
Aloha! President William McKinley signed a resolution annexing Hawaii as an unincorporated territory of the United States on July 7, 1898. Hawaii remained a territory until becoming our fiftieth state on August 21, 1959. Its natural beauty and tropical climate make it a popular tourist destination.
50 States: Hawaii Facts and Trivia
“There are only 12 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet.” “The Hawaiian Islands are the projecting tops of the biggest mountain range in the world.” “More than one-third of the world’s commercial supply of pineapples comes from Hawaii.” Facts are fun, and these fifty facts are no exception. To explore facts and trivia for other states, use the search function, or hop on over to the site’s home page, where all fifty states are listed.
A to Z Kids Stuff: Hawaii
“Hawaii is the southernmost U.S. state and the only state made up of islands. Ka Lae on the island of Hawaii is the southern most point of the USA.” A to Z offers a cornucopia of Things to Know (about Hawaii) along with coloring pages, and links to off-site resources. Best click is the Hawaii State Symbols PDF which includes both color images of the state symbols, and a few coloring pages.
Hawaii Kids is brought to you by the Hawaiian singing duo, Leon & Malia. Visit with your little ones to learn about Hawaii’s animals, people and land. “Hawaii’s humpback whales live most of the time in the waters off Alaska. Every year, as winter approaches and seas around Alaska get too cold, they leave their home and swim about 3,000 miles to the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands! Here, they meet with many whale friends to relax and play with during the winter months.”
