Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the site has dozens of fun, free printable worksheets for kids to practice counting, coloring and other activities.
Is it any good?
WORKSHEETLAB offers more than 100 counting, coloring, and other activities, available as printable PDFs, for preschoolers and kindergarten-age kids. The site's design is very simple -- Worksheetlab doesn't even include an FAQ or any information about who created it -- but it's easy to use. You can sort the worksheets by category, theme, level, and activity type. The PDFs download quickly, and the worksheets provide a good mix of activities. Some are educational and will help kids practice counting and writing in uppercase letters; others are just-for-fun options like coloring pages and mazes.
Online interaction: Kids aren't given a chance to interact with other users on the site.
