Kids' Web

I've been collecting these for a while -- just some fun stuff for kids online.

Category I: Rube Goldberg Machines

Emmet is totally obsessed with Rube Goldberg machines -- you know, those elaborate, nonsensical contraptions where one action sets off a series of other actions.

HEMA -- Dutch department store website. Let the page load and you'll see all its tricks.
The Cog -- a Honda commercial on YouTube

Category II: YouTube

-- a longtime favorite
Feist: 1-2-3-4 -- music video with great colors and dancing
Lucy and Ethel at the Candy Factory
Mary Poppins' Spoonful of Sugar

Also, Sweet Juniper has a good list for the preschool set.

Category III: Interactive

Bembo's Zoo -- making animals out of the alphabet
Faces in Places -- the Flickr group's blog (that's my contribution above)
Lunchtimers -- a game to play with letter magnets
Jackson Pollock -- make your own Jackson Pollock design
coloriage -- coloring with the mouse

If you have more, leave them in the comments.
