Interactive Site Offers Educational Games, Activities For Children

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is sharing an interactive online activity center for parents and caretakers of preschool and young school age children looking for fun learning opportunities while much of the country is keeping safe at home.

The site, PropaneKids.com, includes games, activities, and science experiments for children that are designed to reinforce the importance of propane safety and education with a focus on the farm.

“Millions of school age children have been thrust into a remote learning environment this spring, and many parents are left to their own devices to find engaging, fun ways to keep children learning while they are at home,” said Tucker Perkins, president and CEO of PERC. “We wanted to do our part to help provide a fun, free learning center for young children, and we think parents are going to really like what PropaneKids.com has to offer.”

On the site, parents, caregivers, and their children can explore a virtual farm or create their own, play games like farm bingo and spot-the-difference, color digital coloring pages, and conduct fun science experiments.

Americans living on acreages and farms away from the city center are already familiar with propane in use on their land. Nearly 40% of farms in America rely on propane in their farming and ranching operations to run pumps and engines, heat buildings, and dry and process crops.

Parents can visit PropaneKids.com to explore the activities available.
