Kids' Links from A to Z

Here you will find links from art to zoo!

NEW!  We recently had a suggestion to add a link to Birthday Confectionery Crafts (confectionery is another word for candy).  It was suggested by the kids of Colonial Academy (if you go to the Colonial Academy site you'll find many useful links there, too).
