Children should explore their creativity, both inside and outside the classroom. This week, we sent Lingo on a journey through the web to find the best websites for kids that promote creativity.

Here’s what our mascot owl found:

The Children’s Innovation Project was founded to ignite the fearless fire in the minds of kids everywhere. CMU, along with the help of The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and many others is making big waves around the world.

Here’s more about them from their website:

“The Children’s Innovation Project aims to engage young children in broad interdisciplinary learning, with a focus on creative exploration, expression and innovation with technology. Children explore and learn about electricity and simple circuits through hands-on engagement with a kit of components designed for young hands.

Children make connections to objects in their world – specifically through disassembling toys, identifying components and then repurposing and reconfiguring their internal components into new circuits. In addition, connections to other content areas such as writing, arts, vocabulary, mathematics and social studies are made, strengthening and extending children’s learning.

Through these processes, children are empowered with new relationships and understandings of the world around them, and learn a new set of expressive tools.”

Now that we’ve finished sharing this great educational website for kids, Lingo is off on another adventure!

Watch your children continue to learn and explore, let the fun continue at the Reading Kingdom! Most children refer to the Reading Kingdom as a reading game, since it is so fun to play. Sign up for a free 30 day trial today and see your children have fun as they learn to read today!

“The success has been phenomenal. All the students are doing well and making steady progress. The parents, of course, could not be more pleased.” — Donna Orloff, Speech Pathologistteacher
