Other Fun Sites for Kids

This is a small selection of cool poetry sites and other fun sites for kids. There are certainly plenty of websites for kids to choose from, but these are a few that I happened to stumble upon and found I particularly liked. If you find or run a really great website for kids that you think should be included here, let me know and I'll have a peek at it.

Poems for Fun by Kate Williams Heavy goingFavourite kids poetry site

Kate is a contributor to Funny Poems for Kids and a favoutite poet of mine. I sometimes describe her as the sort of poet that teachers love, because she writes literary poems for children which are also fun. Or as we like to say, Kate's poems make you think as well as laugh. Kate has also published a number of poetry books for children, inclusing the ever popular Wildlife Poems.

Nonsense Poems by Max ScratchannFavourite kids poetry site

Max is a contributer to this website, but his real love is writing nonsense verse. So if you fancy something a bit unusual, why not give it a try. You might be disappointed, but you'll almost certainly be enlightened at the same time. A good starting point to test whether nonsense poetry is for you would be Naughty Amelia Jane a poem about a naughty girl who turns into a grannicidal maniac.

Reading Juice Colourful kids siteFavourite kids poetry site

Mark Megson's collection of funny poetry and other silly stuff which features short funny poems, long funny poems and limericks.

Andrea ShavickFavourite kids poetry site

Children's poems about school, space, people, history, pocket money and much more. The gruesome, bloodthirsty, yucky section is particularly good and 'Grandma was Eaten by a Shark' unmissable.

Silkysteps Hot kids siteFavourite kids site

Silkysteps is a really fantastic site packed full of activities for the under fives. The website offers creative play downloads, colouring pictures, paper crafting and educational resources aimed at the early stages of a child's life.

Poetry in Commotion Colourful kids site

Features funny poems by Gez Walsh. A definite bias towards schoolboy/lavatory humour, but what's wrong with that? Having a Baby? is a very funny poem with a twist - I didn't guess it!

Giggle Poetry Hot kids poetry site Submit your poems

The home of Bruce Lanski and any number of guest poets. You get a chance to rate the poems, enter competitions and learn how to write limericks and nursery rhymes.

Ken Nesbitt Audio poems Heavy going

Funny poetry, a fan club and a potentially very useful series of 10 lessons on how to write funny poems, which unfortunately stops after lesson 4. Expect to write lots of half-funny, half-finished poems until he completes the series.
