Links, videos, and instructions for really fun family projects.


With summer in full swing, lots of kids (and parents) are going online for ideas to keep busy. At Common Sense Media, we're partial to activities that are a little, well, different. We've rounded up 30 unique things you and your kids can learn online (for free!) by a) watching a video, b) following instructions, or c) reading about a subject.

Note: Many videos include an advertisement at the beginning, and some websites might link off to other topics or sites that might not be appropriate for your kids. We suggest previewing or watching along with your kids.
