Have you ever wanted a safe site for your children to play on that has it all? No more constant web surfing needed after you visit TVOKids! This site is filled with an enormous range of activities for children ages 2-5 and 11 & under to enjoy. It has games targeted towards reading, math, science, art, spelling, music, and sports, just to name a few. TVOKids really provides a way for children to improve a number of important skills while still having a great time. The fun doesn’t stop there, in addition to having a range of games, they also have a variety of videos which range from cooking instructions to providing tips and help on homework.
Each age group has it’s own home page with links to the games, videos and more. I played games and watched videos on both age group sites and found them both worthwhile. One of my favorite games on the older children’s site was called Dino Dan. In this game you are provided with tools to find the fossils just like a real life archaeologist would such as a sonar, a shovel, a brush, and a shifter which all need to be used at specific times. You advance through the game by finding fossils in the dig site to form a number of different extinct dinosaurs.
In addition to the dig site, another cool feature of this game is the Dino Lab. This section includes a Hatchery (where dino eggs are cared for), a Yearbook (which shows some of the game’s character Dan’s friends), and a Dinocyclopedia (where you can learn about all the dinosaurs whose fossils you’ve found). There are also a couple of dinosaur themed mini-games within that are unlocked after finding a certain number of complete dinosaur skeletons. A cool option about this game is that you can but aren’t required to create a login account. This is nice for continuous play action and does require a parent’s email. If you child likes dinosaurs they will most certainly love this game, I know i did!
Not to leave out the 2-5 age group site, a game that I thought was particularly entertaining and educational in the category of reading and spelling was called The Adventures of Sir Readsalot. This game reads a page of a story aloud in a very silly sounding voice, while simultaneously highlighting each specific word. This really allows the child to connect the sound with the visual spelling of the word. After the short part of the story is read one word disappears and you must click around the castle background to find the letters that make up the word. Almost every object is click-able and moves around a little when clicked. Even if you don’t click on the correct one to find a letter, you can enjoy the reaction from the object you did click as it moves around. The game also helps you out in finding the letter if you are having trouble by providing a red arrow which will point to the desired location.
In conclusion, TVOKids felt very safe in my opinion and had a variety of fun activities for kids. The site is free and I have yet to see any ads located anywhere really on the site, which is nice since ads seem to pop up everywhere. I highly recommend this site. Enjoy!
