Simple ABC’s

alphabet learning games for kids online

Start off with a very simple way to learn ABC’s, but in a colorful manner. Learn Your ABC’s from Fisher-Price and its online games section is a Flash based tool. The game introduces the child to the letters, one at a time. The letters change in different colors and all the child has to do is to press any key on the keyboard.


Catch The Train

LearningPlanet has two nice games which could be good starters for number recognition. You can let your child catch the number train and then count a few chickens.

Learning At The BBC

Picking the BBC for pre-school learning sounds strange, but the BBC happens to be a great education resource too. Bernie and Bill, the two characters, are there to help you out with a few number games for ages between the ages of 4-11. I went back to Snakes and Ladders after a long time.


Help The Monkey

Alphabet Antics is about a monkey who need some help with coconuts. The alphabet game has three levels. The game is about a monkey who says the letters out aloud and the child has to click on the right coconut to help the monkey clamber up the tree. With each wrong answer, the monkey comes down a notch or two. Also, choose between capitals and small letters to make the child recognize both.

Pick One From The Floor

alphabet learning games for kids online

Poisson Rouge has a bunch of games that appeal to kids between the ages of 3 to 7. On the colorful homepage, you get to see a lot of objects without any information on how to use them. That’s a deliberate design to encourage discovery by kids.

As the user guide explains, kids hardly read (and you can’t expect a 3 year old to read!). So you get games which teach you about letters and numbers starting from the real simple ones to others that teach more fundamental things like reading time or guessing colors. The site is completely ad free and supports French and English.
