Another kid friendly game website Learninggamesforkids.com is an educational platform stocked with a great selection of fun games for kids. Children can learn a variety of skills from spelling, word search, counting, vowels to the most basic typing exercises to help them get the hang of using keyboards.

It is safe to say that we all have a kid in us that brings out the playful side in our life. With the break that social distancing has provided us from our busy schedules, there is a definite spike in the amount of time we spend trying to come up with creative ways to have fun. One of the more noticeable shifts is seen in the front-line display of all types and forms of board games in supermarkets and grocery stores as well as the increase in online ads for games. This is a clear indicator of what the public is up to while in Quarantine. Majority of the games that interest the older generation are the online versions of their offline board games (Ludo, Monopoly, Chess, Checkers, Bingo) with a few exceptions like Candy Crush, Stardew Valley, Online Scrabble and Mahjong.
