I've had this game here for ten years now and I've received so many thank you's that I keep it here at the top of the page. It's a free game you can use to teach your infant or toddler basic mouse skills. Once they know how to use the mouse, this games page will supply both of you with hours of educational entertainment!

Julia's Rainbow Corner
VERY easy to navigate by rolling over icons to hear where they lead. Many games that don't require specialized knowledge and then some that do, like Connect the Dots. This site does not have ads and promotes environmentally conscious behaviour - what more could I ask while I get the dishes done! :-)
At first glance very simple but challenging enough to hold their attention - this is just a sample of the great games at this site. Boowa and Kwala : Boowa's shell game.

Thoroughly enjoyed by both a 6 and 4 year old.

My personal favorite craft site: Art Attack
Here is a simple way to introduce your baby to the click and drag concept with something he's probably already familiar with - Building Blocks. You can rotate the blocks, too!
They have one of the BEST online coloring games - so simple, you can even try your older infant or toddler out on this one!
This site is laid out in a new way - there are stories, online activities, off-line activities and crafts all in a related theme. There are two age groups Preschooler and Elementary. Very interesting and a great novelty - my daughter loved Baby Gorilla Goes Shopping, 5 Hungry Crocodiles, and the fun print out craft, Paper Teddy Bear.
NickJr.com - Free games for kids of all ages
Highly entertaining, this site offers Blues Clues games, colouring pages and even short clips! Dora The Explorer makes her home here, too. They also have an extensive library of stories which are fun to watch with your child but which are also easy enough that your little one can "read" it on their own for a couple of minutes.
Fisher Price's Free Online Games and Activities
Wow! I didn't think I'd relish reviewing infant games but Sparkling Symphony is really cute and my"just gotta touch the keyboard" baby loved it! There are several "bash" games out there (send in your reviews for our upcoming newsletter) but the Tap and Color game actually give baby sister a chance to colour on the computer just like her big sister! Plus it states the color being added - for all that, it wins the Mostly Mommies' big thumbs up for the infant online game category.

The lights flash in a certain order that you try to remember and play back. Very simple and yet it will hold the attention of most toddlers for at least long enough for Mommy to cut up some fresh apples!
