One of the best websites for online games for children aged 4 upwards is 'Cracking Ideas' from the makers of Wallace and Gromit. It's full of games about inventiveness and problem solving and includes downloadable resources and online challenges such as Sprocket Rocket and Invention Suspension, as well as competitions to Invent a Toy, Create a puppet show and much more.
