Computer Skills: Mouse and Keyboarding Games

A lot more kids are having to do school from home these days instead of being able to go to school and sit in a classroom with their friends. It can be hard to keep exercising your brain and learning new things when you're stuck in the house all day, but there are actually a lot of fun games you can play online that can keep your brain busy and help you keep up with schoolwork, too.
