Let’s Explore is one of my all time favorite kid sites. There are tons of ideas and links to help your children learn, create and explore. It is ok if you are not crafty there is something for everyone from sewing, gluing, cutting, pretending, cooking, games and more. Once you have exhausted the ideas on Let’s Explore there is a mile long list of blogs and websites to keep the fun going. Many of the games and projects can be done with items you probably already have in your home.

Family Night Jam Session

You can play locally or create your own band, complete with your own personal style and play gigs for money to buy better equipment, a tour bus, roadies, hair cuts and clothing. You can even play online against your friends. Check it out at
