For all those budding computer geniuses....

Age:  Over 5
Type:  Activity

My oldest loves to play computer games.  Honestly, without a limit as to how long she could be on the computer hours could probably pass before she got tired of it.  So imagine my delight when I discovered a website that offers kids the opportunity to earn food for playing games!!!  Enter, a website the has quiz questions kids answer with the incentive of earning 10 grains of rice for every question answered correctly.  I was curious about how such a thing was made possible, but the rice is donated through ad sponsors who have banners on the site.  So cool!

I will pre-warn you that this is a more advanced project.  I had to read the questions aloud to my oldest and found many of the categories too difficult.  However, the basic math and vocabulary were perfect for my kindergartner.  As she answered questions correctly we could see the rice multiplying in her pretend bowl on the screen.  I found myself a bit addicted as well as I started in on some of the harder questions :)

So the next time your little heart sits down at the computer, consider for a fun way to serve others!
