Aloha all...I've got an almost 11 yo dd who is just starting to explore the internet a little. She has checked out the usual sites like disney.com and the like, but I'm wondering if there are any other sites out there that are a little more evolved? She is a very creative child...loves writing and faeries and music. She is in Waldorf, so her computer contact is still very limited, but we do allow some. I would feel better if I felt the sites were actually positive. I just wonder if there's a kid's place kind of like this out there that anyone knows of... Any insight would be much appreciated by myself and my daughter!

A few that I allow my daughter on are Disney.com , Nick .com , Barbie.com , Harry Potter.com , and Neo pets.com

Hope these help

http://yahooligans.yahoo.com/ (fun exploring and good site to find info for school projects)
http://neopets.com/
http://www.webkinz.com/index.html (requires purchase of cute stuffed animal to get code),
http://www.everythinggirl.com/home/home.aspx
http://www.americangirl.com/

these are all sites my girls are allowed on, the webkinz is really cute because it lets them play with the stuffed animal online building a home and everything for it, plus some educational and fun games. Also there is no way to be able to communicate with others that would put her in danger, all communication is chosen from a list of sayings.

the other two sites are fun but watch the chat boards on neopets, my girls aren't allowed to use those, I signed them up on the under 13 so they aren't allowed access to those.

Those sites above don't allow for much creativity in writing or music but how about
http://artpad.art.com/artpad/painter/ (she can create her own pics online and watch them being made)
http://www.abc.net.au/creaturefeatures/draw/ (a how to draw site), http://neondragonart.com/dp/tutorials/fairy.htm (art tutorial), http://www.fundoodle.com/index.asp

just a few that I have saved

Most larger museums and art galleries have a kids' section on their website - perhaps try Googling some of those with her? There's a wealth of interesting stuff on these, from art to animals to history, and so on.
