Best FREE Resources for Kids Learning from Home

Under our new normal, my family is spending every day at home. Kids are learning from home. This has brought in a new set of challenges. My kids are doing good with online learning but they finish their school work before lunch leaving them with lots of time in their hands.

As a parent, I see as my responsibility to steer my kids toward good online content. Lord Buddha knows I can’t watch another Leah Ash Roblox video! So I decided to find out the best educational YouTube channels, apps and websites I could find and today I am sharing my list of the best free and paid resources for your kid to learn good content at home:

YouTube is the kids #1 choice for content

YouTube and YouTube Kids are the most used by my family. It has lots of great channels for kids and adults that we can watch on the TV or tablets with their app. My favorites YouTube channels are:
