Online safety at home - activities for 5-7 year olds

A series of simple 15 minute activities that parents and carers can use with children to encourage awareness about various digital safety issues.

Online Safety At Home

Thinkuknow have produced activities and worksheets, each corresponding to a video or story focusing on a different issue within online safety. The issues covered within these worksheets and activities include: sharing pictures online, being kind online, messaging online and gaming.

Each activity sheet introduces a topic, sometimes related to an animation or story, and provides age-specific questions and activities about a certain issue. These activities are designed to give children a healthy understanding about online dangers and how to safely, and positively, use the internet.
