oh, the places i'll go

Okay, maybe I spend too much time on my computer. But there is such fun stuff out there on the internet. Here are a few examples.

Disney Fairies
My blogging friend Melissa, of Mejojac's Memos, introduced me to this one. It's definitely for the younger girls, but this girl loves fairies so I've spent more time here than you would think. It's a wonderful site for young girls to use their imagination in designing their own fairies, design their fairies' homes, and exploring the fairy world available to them. Disney has made this a very safe and fun place to play. And, yes, this is one of my fairies.

I don't remember how I came across this one and once again, it's more for the younger crowd. Hmm... what does that say about me? Well, for one, I'm a sucker for good animation. This is a game on a BBC educational site. You advance to new levels by answering questions in different subjects, such as math, science, and english. But before you are given the questions, you must figure out how the animation works for that particular level. Even though this game is for the younger ones, I found both the animation puzzle and some of the questions challenging. If you have kids, definitely check this one out.

Jib Jab
I've seen this around the blogging world but just went and played around with it this past weekend. Oh how fun - and funny! I made a couple of their videos and laughed out loud as I watched them. There's more on this site as I'm still exploring.

Don't send a lame eCard. Try JibJab Sendables!

It's all about being young at heart. I visit sites for little kids too and play online games (i.e. PBS.org, Sprout, etc.)

My girls love the fairie site at Disney. They were peeking over my shoulder and got excited when they saw your post. :)

Is your corner of Colorado sunny and Spring like? We have flowers growing (not blooming yet) trees budding and grass greening. I LOVE SPRING!!!
