free internet games for kidsWhat do you do when the kids of your non-geek friends want to play on your computer? These kids are desperate to play games, but they’re utterly unprepared skills-wise for most of the games you’ve got. You need to find something quick “” and it had best be nice and easy for them!

All kids go through this phase at some point: when they’re keen to play but can’t keep up with the pace of fast games; when they’re not yet well-versed in the different types of game play; when they’re too old for the toddler games and too young for the teenager games. It’s tough to find games for them quickly – and even harder when you know they’re ready to play RIGHT NOW. Better be ready for them!


When looking for free Internet games for kids or any beginner gamers, try to stick to games which:

  • allow them to take their time to press the buttons.
  • don’t take too much co-ordination.
  • are as intuitive as possible.
  • don’t disqualify them from future play.
  • let them move on to a new area or level whether or not they did well.
  • have some sort of movement, colour and sound in the background.
