Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

 Hey my beautifuls, hope things are going well with you all. With the current situation, with kids at home, I can understand what parents like me are going through! It is difficult for both the parents and the kids to cope up with this hard time, with so much to do and everything from home. Education of kids is day by day, turning out to be a challenge while being confined indoors. Although schools have started taking online classes, it is not enough. We, as parents have to provide the right kind of education with entertainment all the time. However, I have come across certain websites, that provide Educational Games for kids, through which kids can learn through having fun. 




Why do we need Educational Games for kids?

1.They can enhance problem-solving ability in children

2.They can motivate self-learning

3. They help in the improvement of communication skills

4. They help kids to learn how to interact with others

5. It is proven that strategic games help in the functioning and motor development of the brain


Top 5 Online Educational Gaming Websites for Kids 


So, here we have listed a good 5 amazing online gaming websites for kids that we can trust: 


1. BBC School Games: This website has really good age-specific games, designed to help kids learn basic skills like numbers, rhymes, motor skills, etc. A lot of parents rely on this website for their kids to get to know about different things at various stages. The games on this website are designed in a very user-friendly and self-instructive way so that kids can access them easily.


2. Plays.org: This is a website that I have come across recently and was so surprised to find out so many types of games on a single platform. 

The website lists innumerable educational games for kids.


Here are some Educational topics they cover:

a. Basic Math: Starting from counting numbers to learning the basics of math, plays.org covers it all. One of my favorite games to make my 5-year-old daughter learn math in a fun way is Math Signs Game. Other games include Multiplication Roulette, TrezeCoins, and many more.



b. Musical Games: Which kid does not enjoy music. Plays.org has some really interesting musical games that make the basics of music playing easy to learn. Some of my favorites are Basic Piano, Virtual Xylophone, Instruments for Kids, etc.


c. STEM learning: STEM learning has become an integral part of our educational system nowadays. Plays.org has some nice and fun games based on this. One of the best games is We Bare Bears Develobears. 


d. Art & Coloring games: Kids love to create and color. Plays.org has so many wonderful art and coloring games for children. My daughter loves to play the Tom & Jerry Let's Create game. Other games that focus on basic coloring lessons are Cute Shapes and Smurfy Coloring.



e. General Educational Games: Plays.org also stores games that are based on general knowledge for kids. Games like What Sound is This, Puzzle games, Junior Chess Games help kids to gather a lot of information regarding the world in general.

Plays.org is a browser-only based gaming website, that can be accessed very easily by kids and parents alike. There is an option of Category-based game search on the website to smooth the process. The gaming site is free of cost and has an amazing collection of games for all ages and interests. Plays.org can be described as the best Family gaming website that I have come across.


3. Primary Games: This is a website that is based according to curriculum based learning for kids. Topics like Math, Science, Social Studies and Language are being taught through interesting games on this website. The site also includes curriculum guides for teachers. 


4. National Geographic Kids: This is one of the best websites where you can find online games for kids, that essentially cover topics like Geography, Interactive Science, Quiz etc. They have very high quality games that kids enjoy playing.


5. ABCYa.com: This website offers games that are created and approved by teachers. The topics covered in the games are Language learning and Math for Elementary students. The widely used and trusted website has been recommended by The New York Times and Fox News.
