Children can visit Daniel Tiger online at www.pbskids.org/daniel where they can play games and watch videos. It’s a website designed with the youngest visitors in mind: all the games are open-ended, which means there is no right or wrong way to play. And all the games can be played with the mouse, the keyboard or both, so that even the youngest fingers can manage. That way, too, children and parents can play games together.
What fun it is for children to be in charge of things that go – like the Trolley. When children play this game, they have a chance to work on some of their feelings about when people they love go away and come back. Play here!
In My Bathroom
Little by little children learn to take care of themselves, like brushing their teeth, washing their hands and going to the potty. With this game you and your child have a way to play about and practice some bathroom routines. Play here!
Feel the Music
Music is one way we all have to express our feelings. You and your child can play this game together to create music that shows different feelings – happy, sad and mad. Your child might even want to dance to the music, too. Play here!
This game gives you and your child a way to play together with the instruments that doctors use. When children play about being the doctor, they’re in charge. That makes it easier to manage when they have to be the patient. Play here!
Make a Card
Making something for someone is one to say “I love you.” This game gives children a way to create a card for someone they care about — and helps them know that everyone in the world, young and old, is a giver and a receiver. Play here!
Each family has its own bedtime routines to help children with the transition from day to night. Bedtime can be hard because it separates children from the ones they love. This game can help you and your children play about and talk about things that help at bedtime. Play here!
