Creative and Educational Web Sites for Kids

I haven’t blogged in awhile and have been looking for inspiration. This is one post that I will be adding to as I find creative web sites for kids. My girls are 6 and 3 and they love playing on the computer. I am also following lots of interested technology teachers on Twitter (#edtech hashtag) and will share what they publish. Feel free to comment and add your favorites.
