Lately, I've been on a kid-friendly-computer kick. This might have to do with the fact that since it's summer, my kids have a lot more time to spend on the computer.
It's been quite handy to bookmark their favorite websites with a button on the bookmarks toolbar. This provides a better visual for kids compared to the the bookmarks drop-down menu.
Here's how to do it:
1. Make sure you have enabled the bookmarks toolbar on your browser. In Mozilla Firefox, select View->Toolbars->Bookmarks Toolbar.
2. Right-click on the "Bookmarks toolbar" and select "New Bookmark." Fill in the name (ie. Games) and the location (ie. www.pbskids.org).
3. Fill in the necessary information. For example: Name: Games, Location: www.pbskids.org When you are finished, click "Add." You should see a new little button with icon on the Bookmarks toolbar.
