Off-grid pantry planner

Have you been yet? We have and I love it. Zoodles is a FREE, fun, educational and safe way for kids 2-8 to access the internet. They also offer a variety of parental controls in their Premium Level for a fee.

“Zoodles basically scours the web to find the best educational content out there (games, puzzles, and videos) and puts it all in one place, presenting it to kids in a safe, simple web browser that adapts to your child’s age and skill level.  What this means is that a 3 year old would get games teaching shapes and numbers, letter recognition, attention and listening, and much more!  A 5 year old would get games teaching early reading & addition, creativity and exploration, etc.  All this learning is wrapped in engaging play that features some of their favorite characters!” (quoted from info they sent me).

Three of my readers are going to win 3 months of  Premium Membership {parental controls} for FREE!

When I think of “parental controls” I think of internet security, but Zoodles goes beyond that- you actually set the percentage of educational subjects you want your kids exposed to! I love this option. I believe I also had the option to exclude advertisements and videos when I set up our accounts as well.

I set up both  my 4 and 6 yr old boys with their own profile and I set up the percentage (think pie-chart) of what subjects I want them exposed to. Zoodles matches the games/activities to what I set.

Thats not all…I also get a weekly email update on what they are learning. I think that is cool.  I plan to use Zoodles in my homeschooling, though you don’t have to be a homeschooler to use it.
