Some of the websites above may not be useful to you, some of them were made by people living in America, some from right here in the UK.

If you find one you really like, let us know.

If you find one you think is terrible, tell us about that too, and we can decide whether we keep it on the list.

Remember, some websites want you to pay for things... DON'T!

If you find a website which doesn't do much without having to ask a parent to pay, let us know and we'll delete it.
