Best School Apps & Educational Websites for Kids

Are you in need of good educational resources at home? Easy things to do with the kids to make sure they don’t forget everything when they go back to school after summer or help them practice during the school year. To help keep my kids busy and yours I found the best free educational websites for kids and school apps.

I have been overwhelmed with all the information we’ve been getting as parents and I wanted to make an easy list for all of us to follow. I have broken up these educational websites by Math, Reading, Science, Mixed-use sites, and Museums.

Find the subject you want to work on with your kids and pick the ones best for your family. I hope this list of School Apps and educational websites for kids will help your family as much as it did mine.
