Learning with Webkinz is a wonderful way to incorporate education and lovable furry friends. The Webkinz craze is one you don't want to miss! Preschool children especially love these unique animals that come with a code to play online games, which are educational! There is a special preschool series of pets, for your two to four year old child, and a regular site that involves kids ages four or five through adults. There are plenty of ways your younger child can enjoy the regular site, including spinning a Wheel of Wow, creating a house for their pets, and playing daily games. This website is a great way to discuss budgeting and money with your child, albeit on a simple level. Discuss the concept of "needs and wants" with your child, and how to decide what to buy for their pet. Keep a running log of the Kinzcash your child earns and spends for a greater understanding of this financial concept. If your child adopts a real pet and not a whimsical one you can learn about their pet's habitat at home. Interestingly, some "W-Shop" items are only offered to aquatic based pets, or treetop creatures. Have your child learn about their pet's actual habitats, and compare them to the Webkinz version. Your child will love playing games that involve simple math, like Booger Gets an A, and making words in "Eager Beaver's Adventure". Both the preschool site and original site have an array of games and learning activities to help your child bring his or her pet to life! The variety of stuffed Webkinz is endless, and each comes with a special code that you can enter online. After entering the code your child can name his or her pet, and they will get an adoption certificate, as well as a biography of what their pet likes to eat and do. You will need to assist your child in setting this up, of course. However, don't be surprised if you end up adopting one of these fluffy friends for yourself!
