Rainy days and Sundays

Looking for something to do with children of all ages.....

Filled with games, videos and lots of fun is SesameStreet.org  http://www.sesamestreet.org/games.    I know , I know it's been around forever but you have to admit it is well organized and has something for everyone-parents and children.  And don't think it's just games.   They are videos and educational content plus tips for parents that tie into the games for children. 

Another great site-I love this one for the games is  http://pbskids.org/  It has videos, games and other fun educational type activites.

This site  http://pbskids.org/sesame/  has a super program for sending e-mail cards I just created one for my buddy Kerri...
   because it's her birthday so let's all wish her

Of course it is a good idea for mom and dad to check out these sites before you show them to your children.  You might find some games that don't work right or that you just don't like.  And of course they aren't a replacement for storytime, drawing or other types of fun, however they can be a supplement to regular activities.  

Do you like these sites?  Do you have some you would like to share ?  Please let us know.
