Whether your kids are going back to school or not, ensuring your child continues to receive a good education at home is crucial. Luckily, there are a number of sites that make learning fun for kids and help to keep them occupied while their usual school routine is disrupted.

ABCmouse (opens in new tab) and Adventure Academy (opens in new tab) are two great examples that mix a carefully designed curriculum for children of various ages with online games and puzzles, and right now you can score a one-year membership to either service for only $45 (opens in new tab) when you sign up by September 10. Both of these services usually cost $10 per month, but today's offer brings the monthly cost down to just $3.75 each. The sale was originally slated to end September 8 so don't miss the couple of extra days you have to make the most of it.

ABCmouse (opens in new tab) is perfect for kids from as young as just two years old up through kids in the 2nd grade. Meanwhile, Adventure Academy (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) which supports reading levels from preschool children to those in the 6th grade, and while it isn't offering the same annual subscription offer as the other two, you can grab a year's worth of access for only $39.99 right now.

ABCmouse and Adventure Academy happen to be 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 ABCmouse, 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 (opens in new tab) offers a 3D world for your child to explore while learning skills in language arts, science, math, social studies, and more.

If you're unsure about whether one of the sites is the right fit, you can start a free 30-day trial of ABCmouse (opens in new tab) or free 30-day trial of Adventure Academy (opens in new tab) to let your child give either one a test run. The annual subscription offer comes to an end on September 10.
