computer game for 4 yr olds?

Hi, I'm a gramma with 2 grandchildren who have recently moved in with me. My 4yr old granddaughter sees me, grandpa and big brother on the computer, and big brother gets an hour of free computer-game play each day. Now she would like to play a game too but I don't know of any that are easy enough for a 4 yr old.

Can you recommend a free on-line computer game (educational, ABCs, 123s etc would be great) for a little 4 yr old girl? I've tried Bejeweled etc but they are still a bit to difficult for her.

thank you

Starfall.com has some sorta educational ones. Our educational ones are usually CDs leftover from dd older siblings. If you don't care how educational they are, you can also try nickjr.com/playtime or pbskids.org

Hope those help!

Hi

Thanks so much for recommending starfall.com! My gd spent over an hour on the ABC portion, her mom and I took turns assisting her. Rylee really enjoyed it and hopefully she will spend more time with it so that she can readily identify her ABCs. I like the reading portion too.

We did go to pbskids.com but I preferred the starfall website.

again, thanx

Hi - you should check out Disney.com, NickJr.com as they have great educational games for kids especially at this age.

Go to Sesamestreet.com, noggin.com or nick jr they have games that she would be able to handle. They are age appropriate and educational. Also we have a v-smile at home they have games that are suggested age 3-5 years old. My four year old son plays any of these things for about 10 minutes before he's ready for a new task, but that's fine by me!!!

Good luck
