With schools across the country closing for extended periods of time you might be worried about how to keep your child busy and learning at home while they're stuck inside over the next couple of weeks. Thankfully, ABC Mouse is taking the occasion to open its virtual doors to all new students for free for 30 days.

What's awesome about ABC Mouse is that it actually operates three sites for children of various ages, so you can select the one that's right for your child or potentially mix the schedule up with more than one to keep them occupied. And best of all, the sites are accessible not just on computers but tablets and smartphones as well.

School may be closed, but that's no excuse for letting learning fall by the wayside! Visit one of ABC Mouse's sites to gain free access for your child to start learning with fun games and activities online.

ABC Mouse is perfect for kids from as young as just two years old up through kids in the 2nd grade. Meanwhile, Adventure Academy is a better resource for your older children and intended for those in 3rd grade through 8th grade. There's also the sister site Reading IQ which supports reading levels from preschool children to those in the 6th grade.

ABC Mouse and Adventure Academy are the most well-rounded options of the three sites, so you'll just want to choose whichever is best for your child's grade level. With ABC Mouse, your child will be able to read stories, play fun math games, learn about the solar system, and even do arts and colors lessons, while Adventure Academy offers a 3D world for your child to explore while learning skills in language arts, science, math, social studies, and more. Both of these services usually cost $10 per month.

ReadingIQ is extremely handy if you're hoping to help your child improve their reading skills, as it offers over 7,000 for kids of all reading levels as well as reading level assessments so you can see how they're doing at any time. It doesn't just include a bunch of stories they've never heard of either, but rather a wide selection of titles from publishers such as Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Curious George, and more. It's normally priced at $8 per month, so now's a great time to give it a try and see if it's the right pick for your little one.

After the trial, you may consider signing up for a full subscription if your child enjoys the service and saving 49% on a one-year subscription.
