I’ve always been really cautious about the amount of time that I allow my kids to spend on television and digital media. Around here, my kids are allowed to watch a total of 3 shows that last 30 minutes. When it comes to video games or computer time, I usually give them 20 minutes a day.
I’m huge on educating my children and trying to incorporate learning into everything they do. That includes television and computer games. I’m not saying I don’t ever let the kids just watch a fun show or play a dumb game, but I do try to steer them toward educational programs and websites.
Since they love playing computer games so much, I am glad that there are a lot of websites out there that put together educational games.

I put together this list of ones that my children like, along with some new websites I’ve discovered.
Did I miss any? If you have a suggestion, feel free to leave me a message in the comments. I’d love to find some others to add to my list.
