Looking for good safe websites these school holidays to keep your kids amused? Well I have put together a list of 10 great websites to check out.

1. Disney Playhouse offers loads of great printables. Pictures that your child can colour in include characters from My Friends Tigger & Pooh, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins and Johnny & The Sprites. Great quality images that are super cute.

2. Nick Jr is another of my absolute favourites for kids. This website is huge and offers a whooping 211 print and colour pages! Characters include those from shows Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Olivia, Yo Gabba Gabba and Blue's Clues. I like how the activities can also be searched by age group so you can find age appropriate stuff quickly.

3. Sesame Street has some great games and also holiday related downloads, such as print and colour cards for Christmas.

4. Littlies has an excellent craft section. I recommend the Animal Masks, younger kids will love the Driving Car and if you have older children then the Sock and Glove toys look like a lot of fun. There are also plenty of kids recipes on this website too.

    Thanks. This is a very handy list of kids websites for parents! I'd like to also recommend which plays kid safe videos, namely cartoons. If the child doesn't like one cartoon then they simply hit the space bar to jump to the next clip.
