Many websites designed for kids claim to be informative and entertaining, but it can be challenging to find fun, user-friendly sites for kids that are not loaded with advertisements.

What should you look for when exploring online resources and apps for kids?

  • Websites for kids should be fun, age-appropriate, and easy to navigate.
  • Websites claiming to be educational should offer immersive experiences for kids to learn about the world and broaden their horizons.
