PC Plum's Garden Game

This is a great game for younger children, which we found on the Cbeebies website.



Children have to move PC Plum to water various plants. They have to spot the plant which is wilting and then use the arrow keys to move PC Plum to the right place so that he can water the plant before it dies or the sun disappears behind the cloud.

It reinforces the importance of sunlight and water for plant growth, while helping kids to develop their keyboard skills and reaction times.

There are three different levels, and the game gets harder as more plants begin to wilt and so need watering more quickly.

You can play the game here.

Grocery Shop Game This online game gets children to buy items from their shopping list. Children get fifteen items per level to find (three lists of five items each).
