American Girl Fun for Girls
The American Girl Fun for Girls website is full of games that include or are inspired by beloved American Girl characters and stories. You don't have to be an American Girl fan to have fun, though. There are puzzle, match 3, action, maze and word games. In fact, there are plenty of activities that boys will enjoy as well. This site is geared toward elementary and middle school students.
This Strawberry Shortcake site is presented by American Greetings. It has videos, printable activity sheets and some cute games. Girls make like the baking competition where they wow the judges with their creativity and logic. Or maybe they would rather pick berries in Strawberry Shortcake's garden. The site also has games and activities for other cute characters like Holly Hobbie and the Care Bears. It's geared toward girls 6-10, although some of the printables are appropriate for younger children.
