10 Great, Free Typing Games

Posted by Erica Warren on

Over the summer months, kids can easily improve their keyboarding skills while having fun. There are numerous free typing games available on the internet, and this blogpost highlights a few of them. The very first one listed, Dance Mat Typing, is by far my favorite of all the options. In fact, it is better than many purchasable software programs and online lessons. The first two games offer lessons, while the last eight are games that allow students to practice their keyboarding skills.
Free typing games

My favorite typing games:

  • Dance Mat Typing This is a comprehensive typing game. It is a free, beginners keyboarding game by BBC.
  • Air Typer Kids can practice keyboarding skills by typing the words on the oncoming planes to make them disappear.
  • Martian City Defender Kids can save a martian colony by typing strings of letters that will destroy the attacking flying saucers.
  • Frogs are Off Their Diet If kids type the string of letters, a frog will eat the oncoming words before hit the ground, if not, the frogs will disappear - one at a time.
  • Desert Typing Racer Kids race down a road and type in the string of letters to drive past the cars.
  • Trick or Type If kids type the string of letters before they hit the ground they will disappear, if not, the ghouls will disappear.
  • Alpha Attack This game helps kids learn the location of all the keys. It involves shooting down bombs that have letters on them before they hit a city.
