The internet can provide a lot of value, education, and entertainment for children of all ages.

From learning about the animal kingdom to trying their hand at coding, kids can have fun online while developing their analytical, creative, and social skills. If you are looking for the best websites for children, we’ve got you covered! And they're good for all ages.


Best Websites for Kids Under 5

1. Curious World

A website that’s both fun and educational, the Curious World offers a lot of creative activities that involve puzzle solving, reading, and math. Most of the activities require an app from the Apple Store (used with iPhones, iPads, etc), but you can check out their website to see what they have to offer.

2. BrainPOP (Junior)

BrainPOP has a Juniors section that’s filled with educational games and activities for your preschooler. From geography games to puzzles, there is plenty for your child to do and learn on this website.

3. The Kids Cook Monday

It’s never too early to teach your child the basics of cooking. This website offers easy to follow recipes that your little ones can pick from and you can all cook together during a fun family night.


Best Websites for Kids Above 5

1. National Geographic Kids

Like its adult counterpart, this website has a large variety of educational videos, games, photos, and articles covering interesting facts about the world. You can get badges and awards for participating in various activities, and even send in your own submissions!

2. Code.org

For those of you more technologically inclined, Code.org is a great website for children of all ages to learn the basics of coding. It’s supported by some of the biggest tech influencers today like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, so your child will be in good company!

3. A Mighty Girl

If you are raising a smart, confident, courageous girl, this one’s for you. From books to toys to movies and music, this site claims to have everything a young girl needs.

4. FunBrain

Aimed at kids of all ages, FunBrain has been around since 1997. Its books, games, and comics will keep your child entertained for hours. It has a pretty great educational section, too.


Best Websites for Teenagers

1. How Stuff Works

You know those questions that pop into your head, but you can’t quite answer? Like “Where does the new car smell come from?” and “Why is the sky blue?” This website will help you and your teen answer these questions (and more) with ease.

2. The Khan Academy

The Khan Academy is the place for a whiz kid who wants to go beyond homework. It is on a mission “to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere,” and it offers courses in math, computer science, engineering, and other disciplines—completely free of charge.

3. Storybird

This one is for your creative tweens! Storybird curates artwork from illustrators and animators around the globe, and helps users turn it into stories. You can write a poem, a picture book, or even a long-form book—and add stunning illustrations to bring it further to life.


Final Thoughts

The internet can be a pretty fun place for your kids to enjoy and learn! It can help develop their analytical, creative, and social skills.
