Fun and Educational Computer Games and Apps for Kids
Children learn through two main ways: modelling and interaction. Involving your child in interactive learning, especially through educational computer games, is a wonderful way to show them that learning can be fun. In this article, we’ll explore a few different computer games and apps your child can use to learn.
Teach your child about the wonders of nature with Switch Zoo, an online game that lets them mix and match features of 142 different animals. Whilst having an opportunity to unleash their creativity, your child is also learning about animals, their habitats and characteristics.
Magic School Bus
Many of us watched or read the Magic School Bus’s adventures as a child. Now these adventures are available online for your child to explore.
They can choose which journey they would like to go on, allowing them to develop their independence and decision-making skills, whilst also learning about the world.

Fish School is a perfect app for young children who are still learning their letters, numbers, shapes and colours. It is engaging, warm and interactive – everything a child needs to have a fun learning experience.
Letting your child explore their creativity can sometimes be tough. You may not have all the resources on hand, your child may create a huge mess, or perhaps there is simply no time in between other activities.
