There are many games, printables, and activities available at this site.

Older kids will be intrigued by \"Keys to the Kingdom,\" an excellent maze game involving a series of puzzles. Very young surfers will enjoy pounding out tunes on Clifford's \"Xylobone\" and selecting a percussion instrument for Clifford to play along. Other sections of the site include the goofy \"Captain Underpants\" and his \"Wedgie Power\" game -- involving stretching and aiming underwear at oddball moving targets.
