Kids home for an extended amount of time?  While this prospect might sound daunting to you, let me assure you: YOU GOT THIS. Check out the list below of more than 50 FREE educational websites to take advantage of during this unexpected break.

FREE Educational Websites for Kids

So. The kids are home. For 2 weeks, maybe more. What’s a parent to do? While I’m sure that many of you are going to be receiving educational material and school work from your district, some of you will have to come up with activities on your own.  Fortunately for you, you live in the AGE OF THE INTERNET! Online educational resources are just around every corner of the web and MANY of them are free.

Here are some of the most popular free educational websites for kids, plus a few just-for-fun sites tossed in as well. Enjoy learning activities, virtual tours and field trips, explore the National Parks, create art and music, check out the International Space Station and SO much more!

Don’t forget to print my family bucket list which has 50 ideas for stay-at-home activities for kids. You can also take advantage of the pages and pages of kid-friendly crafts and printables on my site!
