Just a note, that we always recommend you check out any digital platform, game, or app prior to your kids using it.

Online Games for Kids

While video chatting can be fun, online games can sometimes be more interactive or just a different activity depending on what you are used to!

Here are some online games you can play with friends.

Online Games You Can Play With Friends

Most of these have been recommended by fellow parents. Some also have additional parental control functions, if needed.

The majority of these can all be played online (no app or gaming console needed). As always, we recommend checking these games out for yourself, prior to allowing your child to play them.

Digital Escape Rooms (Adults would LOVE these, too!)

Escape Rooms available for free! You can complete this escape room as a family or individual, you can compete against friends and try it multiple times.

We’d recommend using a video chat method from above and then sharing your screen so one user can control the clicking around for these.
