Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ziggity Zoom is a fun, lightly educational site for preschoolers or early readers and their parents. This creative site is filled with games, printables, and craft activities for kids that encourage reading, coloring, drawing, and imagination. Parents must login with their Facebook accounts for kids to play some of the games. There's so much here to choose from that preschoolers will likely need a parent's help to navigate the site (at least the first few visits) to find what's right for their individual age and abilities. There's also a parent section with articles about education, healthy habits, arts and crafts, and other topics. Whether looking for a holiday craft or a rainy day game, you'll likely find something engaging on Ziggity Zoom.

QUALITY

Most of the games on Ziggity Zoom are engaging and easy for preschoolers to figure out on their own. They'll need some direction to find the games or printables that are appropriate for their current level. Kids this age want to try computers like the big kids, but they also still value hands-on and outdoor fun. Ziggity Zoom provides both, and a meaty parent section, too. Online easy reader books add to the fun.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the healthy lifestyle messages this site includes, such as the games that take kids outside. The Look and Find printout sheets for the park, zoo, and backyard are excellent examples of finding resources online that can get kids outdoors and moving.

  • Ask your young computer user to compare coloring the whimsical coloring pages online versus printing them and coloring with crayons. What's the difference in the two experiences?
