I am looking for sites that are both fun and educational for me and my 4 year old son to check out together.

You can try My grand (5) has been using it for 2 years now. Her other favorite is a Disney site that I can’t seem to find on my computer right now. Hope this helps :-)

Scholastic has some fun games and book links. The I Spy puzzles are fun to play with a child and challenging enough for a grown-up.

My kids always liked the Nick Jr. website. The games are educational, and there are craft ideas and pages to print and color.

There’s also Funschool and Sesame Street and PBS Kids.

You have to buy a stuffed animal to get a code, but my kids all love Webkinz. When they were younger, we would do the games and activities together. It isn’t as educational as some of the other kids’ websites, but it’s fun and safe.

You can also look for videos online to watch with your child. Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and other sites have great (and short) video segments that kids love. Just preview them first so there aren’t any surprises. My kids love to watch funny videos on YouTube, but close supervision is a must. If you set up an account and add safe videos to your playlist, you can later watch them with your son. My kids like clips of animals or little kids doing funny things, crazy sports moments and (in the case of my 5 year old) Michael Jackson videos. Of course, you never want to let a kid use youtube on their own!

How about keeping kids off computers and going for a walk in the woods? Both fun and educational.

@sliceswiththings There’s plenty of time in the day to do both, especially if you’re an at-home parent and your child isn’t in school yet.
