6 Free Educational Online Games for Kids

Educational online games are a fun way to keep kids' brains engaged all year round. Here are six of our favorite options.

Educational games are a great way to supplement your child’s learning, especially when they feature familiar characters and fun activities. Make the most of screen time at home with these free websites and apps.

Lego Games

Lego has an entire section of its website filled with free games where kids can digitally build, race and match with popular Lego brands like Star Wars, Duplo and Batman. Lego also has several free apps available for mobile devices.

Nick Jr.

Preschoolers will love the variety of games offered on Nick Jr.’s website, from making music with Dora and Boots to solving puzzles with the crew from Paw Patrol.

Fun Brain and Fun Brain Jr.

Fun Brain Jr. has both a website and an app filled with math and reading activities geared towards preschoolers. Explore games like Shape Shack, Letter Splash, Rhyme Time and Balloon Blow Up with your little ones. Older kids can check out Fun Brain, which features math, science and literacy games for kindergartners through middle schoolers.

PBS Kids

Kids will find all of their favorite PBS characters (like Daniel Tiger, Pete the Cat and Pinkalicious) hanging out on PBS Kids’ website and app. Parents will love all of the categories of games available, too, including science, emotional growth, healthy habits, music, teamwork and more.

Highlights for Kids

Highlights’ website has some of the same games and puzzles from the pages of the magazine. Kids can search for hidden objects, spot the difference between two photos or solve an animal-themed word search.

Toontastic 3D

Creative kiddos, this is the game for you. Toontastic gives children ages 6-12 an opportunity to design and animate their own 3D cartoon. Cartoon adventure themes include historical films, mysteries and cooking shows. The best part? The app is completely free and works offline (a huge bonus on long car trips!).
