Where to play kids' games for free

One major struggle for many parents nowadays is where to find educational, fun games for kids. With so many obscene sites and questionable ads on game websites, it is often hard to judge where to look. This article will outline some known kids' games sites, as well as, how to find more of them for your child yourself, no matter how young or old your child is.

How to find the sites

The biggest issue relating to learning games is how to find the sites that host them. For starters, simple flash games should be enough. These are always free to play, and are hosted on an external server. CommonSenseMedia.org
One way to find these types of game sites is to use the website CommonSenseMedia.org. This site is a non-profit that is dedicated towards entertainment and how it will affect your child. You can visit Commonsensemedia.org to find some sites for your child. Next to each website name, there is a brief news capsule of what the site is. Likewise, there is also a star rating out of five for its relevance and value, and finally an age range for which the reviewers believe the site is suitable.
Check the advice One valuable piece of advice is to always check out the site before letting your child use it. Remember that these sites change ownership all the time, and its suitability for your child could change at any time.

Other valuable tips

1. Always use an Ad Blocker, such as the free "Adblock Plus" for Firefox.
This will lessen the chances of your child being exposed to an inappropriate advert. 2. Never go back to a website that asks you to install anything besides Adobe Flash Player. These installations normally put unwanted software, such as viruses, trojans, and ad ware. 3. When in doubt, always go to reputable sites of well established companies. Such examples are Nickeolodeon, The Cartoon Network, Disney, ABC Online, Sky Games, and many more. Just google any of those to find lots of free, fun games. So, once you find one site that you like, you can normally find many more games that your child will be interested in, in the same location.
