Fun & Learning: Free Educational Kids Games Online

 



The following are hand-picked online games, for the most with an educational twist, that are free for kids to play online.

Best Free Educational Online Games 

All Levels/Multi-Subject

FunBrain.com Kids can fill in the blanks in junior Mad Libs for silly educational fun in ReadingBrain, play board games in MathBrain, take a break with fun arcade games, and more on this super site. 

Upper Elementary: Math & Logic

Cyberchase Top Pick. This site is packed with Cyberchase games that have tremendous educational value. It is difficult to find so many quality educational games online that are free these days, and these ones are tops. Children need to recognize patterns, crack codes, weights and measurements, and more. Excellent! 

Science Games

Brain Pop Science Movies and quizzes on various science topics. This is a kid-friendly site that helps children visualize and understand science concepts. Full content access requires a paid subscription, but there are some freebies.

Word Games

Learning Vocabulary Can Be Fun Free online word games to help improve vocabulary. Word searches, crosswords, hangman, quizzes, and matching games. This site sports a very clean and easy interface. Nice!

Whomp A Boggle-like online game that is pleasantly addictive. Kids find as many words as they can within a time limit.

Word Central is a kid-friendly site dedicated to words! It features a student dictionary, word of the day, games, rhymes, and more. My daughter uses this site for her "words of the day" homework, simply because she finds the definitions easier to understand than those found in the regular dictionary. There are games to play here that will appeal to word-loving kids.

Early Learning & Computer Skills: For Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers

Fisher Price Free Online Games Top Pick This area of the Fisher Price site is packed with early learning online computer games, divided into age groups: infants, toddlers, and preschool. These include sample activities from Fisher Price software games (check out the FP Little People Discovery Airport maze game, Rescue Heroes sample activities, etc.) and various online games based on Fisher Price products, such as the Little People line, Sparkling Symphony toys, Geotrax puzzles, and so forth. Although these games certainly promote Fisher Price toys and products, it's a nice collection of online games for young children that families will enjoy.

 

Just For Fun Free Online Games

Pacman Classic Pacman free online. Kids use the keyboard arrows to maneuver. High scores kept. It takes a bit of time to get used to the controls, but this is a tried-and-true blast from the past, with authentic sounds, that most kids enjoy.
