Ohanarama: Safe Online Gaming for Children

As a mom of two young children I'm always looking for new things to entertain and educate my children.  I want my children to thrive through learning and fun.  Whether together, independently or as a family.

Ohanarama is especially designed for elementary school age children.  You get to play games, earn points and win prizes.  All while having fun and learning too!  Who wouldn't want to enjoy all that?

I have two children, ages 10 and 7, so I knew Ohanarama would be a perfect fit for my family.  To make it even better, it's free to sign up and to play. 

As an overly protective mother, I love the fact that Ohanarama is a safe online environment for my children.  I control who they can interact with because only those I invite to join our family network can see my children and their activities.

I'll admit that I had to check out the environment and the games for myself before I started letting the kids play.  I started playing Max Damage and quickly became obsessed!  I couldn't play it enough and didn't want to stop.  The kids had to say... "Come on Mom, when is it going to be our turn?"  OOPS!

There are single and multi-player games as well as quizzes.  You can also challenge friends and family to a little friendly competition!  My kids think it's fun to challenge to to a game and see who gets the highest score. Of course, I let them win!

Fun games that test your memory, quickness and thought process.  A few of them even made me stop and think about what I was doing and what the best process was going to be in order to get to the next level of game play.

As a mom I love the fact that the games make learning and facing challenges FUN for my kids!
