Lots of fun websites are listed below for your kids this summer. There are some of the best educational websites and plenty of entertaining colouring pages and online games. Enjoy!

1. DinoSawUs is a fun, interactive and educational online dinosaur world for children aged between 5 and 11, made right here in New Zealand. DinoSawUs is a virtual prehistoric game world for kids full of dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus where children adopt a dinosaur, play games and go on adventures. Highly recommended!


2. Mind Lab is a must-see website. How is our consciousness connected to the world? Explore the unconscious functions of the brain with visual illusions and mysterious perceptual phenomena. This is one seriously fun, yet educational site...parents will love it too.

3. Another fabulous website aimed at younger children is The WotWots. If you have a preschooler then you'll probably already be familar with the hit New Zealand TV show. I would recommend you check out in the games section, drawing board > animal creator. FUN!

4. Disney Family is a huge website with so much to entertain your kids of all ages. Disney crafts, Disney printables, Disney recipes. The recipes section is great. There's also a Christmas area, found under Disney Holidays. I love the decorating cupcakes section. There's also hundreds of printables, just choose your favourite Disney characters. Make sure you look at the Tangled section (the 3D movie sure to be a hit with the kids these holidays).
