Complements of Shannon @ Rocks in My Dryer
My 2 1/2 year old is fascinated with the computer ... probably because her Daddy and I are as well. :-) Without wanting to invest in computer games and such at such an early age, and also using the computer as another babysitter like the TV, we've found one resource that has been great for letting her play on the computer, it's completely free, and we have to be there to help her and play with her. Sesame Street's website is GREAT - on the website, they have computer games of all kids. Two of them, N1 could play by herself - they are keyboard games where all she has to do is press a key and Elmo or some other character says a letter of the alphabet. If we are there to sit with her (as we are usually), we can play letter-find games, matching games, sorting games, etc.
A great FREE resource that has worked well for us!
