I Love Garfield

My kids and I are having a great time over at GarfieldCom. There's lots of silliness of course, but there are two activities that are educational:

1. The Archives is a wonderful opportunity for your child to read on her own; or for you to explain why something is funny -- or to be amazed that your 9 year-old understands why something is funny. Similarly, the Comic Creator provides a way for your child to practice spelling and writing -- and to come up with lines that match the situation and are funny.

2. There are two "spooky house" games. The second one is probably better to start with and once you complete it, you'll know how to do the first.

Do take a second to listen to the very silly telephone answering machine messages.
