Doodle! Studio – 3D Animated Art show for children

Do you have a young budding artist in your midst? This website is described as a “unique approach to the traditional art class.” This interactive site introduces children to Doodle, a 3-D animated art teacher, and his pals who give basic art lessons. There are simple drawing lessons, doodle and paint pads, as well as an online art gallery for displaying masterpieces.


Funology’s motto is “the science of having fun” — and that’s just what your kids will have when they visit this site. While clicking and exploring channels such as Brain Drains (quizzes, brainteasers, optical illusions and more) and The Laboratory (at-home science experiments) your children are sure to find an activity or game to keep them busy. Kids can also share their favourite recipes in The Kitchen and jokes in the Tummy Ticklers channel. They also won’t want to miss the Abracadabra channel filled with magic tricks to wow family and friends.

Morton Subotnick’s Creating Music

Get your child to make beautiful music with this online composition site. Fun for kids of all ages, actually fun for adults of all ages too, offers activities and games that teach visitors about music and how it’s made. The site is completely interactive and allows visitors to compose their own instrumental music on the Musical Sketch Pad or with a Rhythm Band. It also teaches kids how shapes can change musical contours and it features fun games with sound. This is great for kids who aspire to be musicians, and even those who don’t.
