Up toTen


If you’d like to be able to suggest online games and activities that will help young and special-needs children improve their coordination, logic, or computer skills, then look no further than UpToTen’s search page. It will help you quickly search through more than 1,000 entertaining and focused free online activities to locate the perfect game to match a child’s interests, age, and developmental needs. You can search three ways: by keyword, by game category, and by educational category. Because this is such a huge site, there are a lot of choices for each topic—for instance, there are 20 different activities to help kids learn how to click and drag with a mouse—so kids can practice without getting bored by playing the same game over and over again. Bookmark this site—it will save you tons of time when helping kids who just want to have a bit of online fun.
